The effect of the inclusion size and the sulfur content on the intragranular ferrite (IGF) formation in steels with Ti2O3 additions was investigated. The nuclei inclusion is identified as a TiOx+MnS phase. TiOx was found to be the nucleation site for an intragranular ferrite formation. Also, the inclusion size increases from a range of 0.3 to 6.8μm to a range of 0.85 to 13.53μm after the addition of Ti2O3 powders into the molten steel. The probability of an IGF nucleation increases with an increased inclusion size. It is found that a 1.7μm inclusion size is large enough to be an effective nucleation site. It is also noted that the nucleation probability decreases with an increased sulfur content. The tendency of the probability of an IGF nucleation could fit the tendency of the area fraction of an IGF with an increased sulfur content.
