Purpose: The aim of the paper is to determine influence of plastic deformation rate at room temperature on structure and mechanical properties of high-Mn austenitic Mn-Al-Si 25-3-3 type steel tested at room temperature. Design/methodology/approach: Mechanical properties of tested steel was determined using Zwick Z100 static testing machine for testing with the deformation speed equal 0.008 s-1, and RSO rotary hammer for testing with deformation speeds of 250, 500 and 1000s-1. The microstructure evolution samples tested in static and dynamic conditions was determined in metallographic investigations using light microscopy as well as X-ray diffraction. Findings: Based on X-ray phase analysis results, together with observation using metallographic microscope, it was concluded, that the investigated high-Mn X13MnAlSiNbTi25-3-3 steel demonstrates austenitic structure with numerous mechanical twins, what agrees with TWIP effect. It was demonstrated, that raise of plastic deformation rate produces higher tensile strength UTS and higher conventional yield point YS0.2. The UTS strength values for deformation rate 250, 500 and 1000 s-1 grew by: 35, 24 and 31%, appropriately, whereas in case of YS0.2 these were: 7, 74 and 130%, accordingly, in respect to the results for the investigated steel deformed under static conditions, where UTS and YS0.2 values are 1050 MPa and 700 MPa. Opposite tendency was observed for experimentally measured uniform and total relative elongation. Homogeneous austenitic structure was confirmed by X-ray diffractometer tests. Research limitations/implications: To fully describe influence of strain rates on structure and mechanical properties, further investigations specially with using transmission electron microscope are required. Practical implications: Knowledge about obtained microstructures and mechanical properties results of tested X13MnAlSiNbTi25-3-3 steel under static and dynamic conditions can be useful for the appropriate use of this type of engineering material in machines and equipment susceptible to static or dynamic loads. Originality/value: The influence of plastic deformation at room temperature under static and dynamic conditions of new-developed high-manganese austenitic X13MnAlSiNbTi25-3-3 steels were investigated.
