The influence of ferritic and pearlitic microstructures to dynamic strain aging (DSA) of ductile iron was investigated by means of strain-controlled cyclic tests performed at temperatures ranging from room temperature to 450°C, strain rates of 10⁻⁵ to 10⁻² s⁻¹ and at three different strain amplitudes along with tensile tests. Results indicated that all tested microstructures exhibit strain aging effects at elevated temperatures in some form, similar to ferritic-pearlitic steels. Additionally, static tensile tests show hardening at intermediate temperatures, minima in elongation and serrations in stress–strain curves. Cyclic data indicates DSA related changes in stresses at 250°C and 350°C at smaller strain rates, while the effects become more suppressed at higher strain rates.
