Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho de pesquisa avalia os efeitos das temperaturas de austenitização plena e intercrítica, associado ao tratamento térmico de têmpera interrompida e partição, realizada em banho de sais fundidos e sua influência no comportamento mecânico e microestrutural do aço de alta resistência e baixa liga AISI300M. Para os ensaios de caracterização mecânica foram realizados ensaios de dureza cujos resultados variaram de (35HRC a 55HRC) dependendo do tratamento; ensaios de tração, que atingiram o limite de resistência máximo de 2272 MPa com 6% de alongamento; ensaios de tenacidade ao impacto Charpy que superaram os tratamentos convencionais de têmpera atingindo 38J de energia absorvida; além dos ensaios de tenacidade à fratura linear-elástica, método (KIC) que ficaram entre (35 e 67 MPa√m). Para a caracterização microestrutural foram realizadas análises por microscopia óptica, microscopia eletrônica de varredura (MEV), além da investigação microestrutural pela técnica de microscopia eletrônica de transmissão (MET) que elucidaram os microconstituintes multifásicos presentes como martensita, ferrita e bainita. Para quantificar as frações de fases presentes utilizou-se a técnica de difração por raios-X e método de refinamento Rietveld, mostrando até 20% de austenita retida na condição de partição em 400ºC. Para auxiliar e mapear as fases presentes foram utilizadas as técnicas de MEV-EBSD e EBSD acoplada ao microscópio eletrônico de transmissão MET-EBSD com indexação via software ASTAR. Após os ensaios mecânicos, as superfícies de fratura foram examinadas via MEV e exibiram em geral um modo misto de fratura om a presença de dimples, coalescimento de microcavidades e quase-clivagem.

Abstract in English
The present research work evaluates the effects of the complete and intercritical austenitization temperatures associated with interrupted quenching and partitioning performed in molten salt baths and its influence in the mechanical behavior and microstructural of AISI 300M high strength low alloy steel. Hardness tests with range from 55HRC to 35HRC were obtained depending on the heat treatment. Tensile tests have shown maximum strength limit of 2272 MPa and 6% elongation. Toughness parameters by instrumented Charpy impact tests exceeded values obtained in the conventional heat treatments providing 38J of absorbed energy. In addition, results from linear-elastic fracture toughness tests (KIC), values among 67 and 35MPa√m were found. Microstructure characterization was performed by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and microstructural research by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), which optimized the multiphase microconstituents with the presence of martensite, ferrite and bainite. In order to quantify the phases volume fractions present, it was used a X-ray diffraction technique and "Rietveld" refinement method that obtained up to 20% of retained austenite in the partitioning condition at 400°C. To assist and map the present phases, it was used MEV-EBSD and EBSD techniques coupled to the transmission electron microscope MET-EBSD with indexing via ASTAR software. After the mechanical tests, fracture surfaces were analyzed by SEM and showed in general, a mixed mode of fracture with the presence of dimples, microcoalescence and quasi-cleavage.
