An ultra low carbon Cu bearing HSLA steel, micro alloyed with Nb and Ti was forged in two stages and subsequently cooled at different cooling rates. Variation in microstructures and the mechanical properties at different cooling rates have been studied. Volume fraction of bainitic phase has been found to vary with different cooling rates. Maximum strength was achieved in this steel at an intermediate cooling due to precipitation hardening of very fine microalloying carbides, carbonitrides and -Cu precipitates. Finer polygonal ferrite and granular bainite structure obtained at the slowest cooling rate resulted in high impact toughness values at ambient and sub ambient temperatures.
