Carburized steel components are usually quenched from a hardening temperature, which lies in a complete austenitic phase, to room temperature. This leads to a microstructure comprised of mostly martensite plus bainite giving rise to unwanted heat-treatment-induced distortion. However, having a soft phase of ferrite dispersed throughout the microstructure can be quite effective in this regard. This is attributed to the capability of ferrite in accommodating the plasticity resulted from austenite… CONTINUE READING
