While experiments show that refining the prior austenite grain size can either accelerate or decelerate bainite formation in steels, kinetic models based on the successive nucleation of bainitic ferrite subunits can only predict an acceleration. In this work we develop a physically-based model for bainite kinetics assuming a displacive growth...

This work presents constitutive equations and a dataset of a thermal model for the prediction of temperature fields and heating rates during the application of localized laser treatments to a Fe-C-Ni alloy. The model considers transient material properties and the coupling between temperature and microstructure, with emphasis on the phase...

The influence of carbon concentration variations on pearlite formation (20 h at 600 °C) in a case-carburized steel is investigated. The resultant microstructure shows three distinct regions: carburized case, a transition region, and the original core. The microstructural transition from the case to the core regions is observed to be...

In many commercial steel processing routes, steel microstructures are reverted to an austenitic condition prior to the final processing steps. Understanding the microstructure development during austenitization is crucial for improving the performance and reliability of the microstructure that forms from austenite. In this work, austenite...

Recent studies have demonstrated the viability of quenching and partitioning (Q&P) treatment for processing martensitic stainless steels showing an improved balance of high strength and sufficient ductility. However, to date, the fatigue behaviour of these materials has not been explored. This study examines the effect of their complex...

Quenching and partitioning (Q&P) treatment has been proven effective in manufacturing advanced high strength steels with high content of retained austenite, showing the improved balance of high strength and sufficient ductility. This method has been very well elaborated for carbon steel processing over the last two decades. Though it can...

Localised laser treatments enable the creation of sophisticated austenite/martensite mesostructures in Fe–Ni–C steel with the potential of achieving enhanced mechanical performance. The control of phase topology is essential to modify the properties of these structures on demand and requires a profound understanding of the effect of the...

In this work, a medium Mn-Ni steel was treated through Quenching and Partitioning (Q&P) with a partitioning temperature (PT) of 650 °C, which corresponded to the start of the austenite reverse transformation (ART) phenomenon. The influence of the quenching temperature (QT) and partitioning time (Pt) on austenite stabilization and mechanical...

Nucleation is the re-arrangement of a small number of atoms in the structure of a material leading to a new phase. According to the classical nucleation theory, a nucleus will grow if there is an energetically favourable balance between the stability of the newly formed structure and the energy costs associated to the formation of strains and...

The development of the quenching and partitioning (Q&P) process has prompted an interest in the process of isothermal transformation in presence of a pre-existing phase such as martensite. The presence of prior martensite is known to accelerate the overall kinetics of bainite formation, both in the 1-step and 2-step Q&P process. The...

Bainite to austenite reversal is one of the grain refinement techniques employed in carburized steels. However, chemical segregation influences the homogeneity of the bainitic structure, which is seminal to exploit the advantages associated with austenite reversal. It is therefore important to understand the influence of chemical segregation...

The martensitic transformation in pure Fe and its alloys has been studied over many decades. Several theoretical models have been proposed to describe the atomic motion that leads to the fcc-to-bcc martensitic transformation. However, such models do not account for the effect of pre-existing planar defects such as twin boundaries and stacking...

The volume increase and shape change during austenite to martensite transformation in dual-phase (DP) steels are largely accommodated in the microstructure by the deformation of the surrounding ferrite matrix. Accurate estimation of transformation-induced deformation of ferrite via experiments and modeling is essential for predicting the...

The realisation of sophisticated hierarchically patterned multiphase steels has the potential to enable unprecedented properties in engineering components. The present work explores the controlled creation of patterned multiphase steels in which the patterns are defined by two different crystal structures: face centre cubic or fcc (austenite)...

Quenching &amp; Partitioning (Q&amp;P) steels owe their good strength-ductility combinations to the martensite/austenite (α’/γ) mechanical interactions and to the formation of mechanically-induced martensite (α′<sub>mech</sub>) through the transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) effect. An essential role is played by carbon, whose...

During the production of DP steels, the volume expansion and shape change accompanying the austenite to martensite transformation is accommodated by the deformation of surrounding ferrite grains. The extent of the deformation in ferrite grains ultimately affects the mechanical properties of DP steels. Using electron backscatter diffraction...

Austenite stabilization through carbon partitioning from martensite into austenite is an essential aspect of the quenching and partitioning (Q&amp;P) process. Substitutional alloying elements are often included in the chemical composition of Q&amp;P steels to further control the microstructure development by inhibiting carbide precipitation ...

The quenching and partitioning (Q&amp;P) process is a heat treatment process, aiming at the creation of steel microstructures composed of martensite and retained austenite. Herein, the thermal stability of the microstructure is investigated upon reheating steel microstructures, created with different Q&amp;P settings, in different thermal...

Bainite formation in steels typically starts at austenite grain boundaries and continues through nucleation of bainite at newly formed bainitic ferrite/austenite interfaces. Recent experimental evidence has pointed out that austenite to bainite transformation can also proceed in the presence of martensite. Studies suggest that the presence of...
