Twinning Induced Plasticity steel, or TWIP steel, has had increased interest in recent years from various industry sectors. This is due to it being light weight, strong, and ductile; which are all properties that are useful in the automotive and aerospace industries. These steels potentially can offer lighter weight vehicles and parts with increased strength and other mechanical properties. This combination could offer greater fuel efficiency and performance while at the same time improving the safety features of the vehicle. This paper deals with the description of the behaviour of high manganese steel after cold rolling and subsequent annealing. Impacts on microstructure, phase composition, yield strength and tensile strength are described.Keywords: TWIP steels, rolling, mechanical properties
