This work presents a three dimensional microstructural analysis of medium carbon steels, based on serial sectioning using optical microscopy. The microstructural phases considered here are ferrite and pearlite. Typically conventional 2D microscopy is used to analyze these phases, with eddy current or ultrasonic methods as alternatives. Medium carbon steel samples were heat treated in a furnace and either slowly cooled in the furnace, or cooled at higher rates. This resulted in different… CONTINUE READING
