The overall kinetics of the isothermal transformation of austenite to bainite and to pearlite in high-purity Fe-C-3 at. pct X alloys (X = Mn, Si, Ni, or Cu) containing 0.1 wt pct C and 0.4 wt pct C were investigated with quantitative metallography and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to ascertain the presence or absence of the incomplete reaction phenomenon. The incomplete transformation of austenite to bainite was not observed in the Fe-C-Si, Fe-C-Ni, Fe-C-Cu, or Fe-0.4C-Mn alloys. It… CONTINUE READING
