Abstract: An investigation was made of the properties of cold-rolled steel sheets in a temperature range from room temperature to 300°C. Tests were conducted on materials which contained a large amount of solute (C+N) and materials which contained little solute. A study was made of the effect of temperature of elongation, uniform elongation and local elongation. Results are given of a cylindrical deep drawing tests carried out in warm conditions.

Keywords: cold rolled steel sheets; cylindrical deep drawing; sheet steel formality; mechanical properties; press forming; solute carbon content; temperature dependence; material properties; tensile testing.
