Case Study: Weld Microstructures


The microstructure obtained as the weld cools from the liquid phase to ambient temperature is called the as–deposited or primary microstructure. Its major components include allotriomorphic ferrite, Widmanstätten ferrite, and acicular ferrite (Fig. 1). There may also be some martensite, retained austenite or degenerate pearlite. These latter phases occur in… (More)
