Influence of the Carbon Content on the Kinetics of Phase Transformations During Continuous Heating from As-Quenched State in a Cr-Mn-Mo Model Alloys / Wpływ Zawartości Węgla Na Kinetykę Przemian Fazowych Podczas Nagrzewania Ze Stanu Zahartowanego W Stopach Modelowych Cr-Mn-Mo

Open access

The presented work concerns the research on the kinetics of phase transformations during continuous heating from as-quenched state of three Cr-Mn-Mo model alloys with a different carbon content. The kinetics of phase transformations during continuous heating of investigated alloys was presented on the CHT (Continuous, Heating, Transformation) diagrams.

The CHT diagrams were made on the grounds of dilatograms recorded for quenched samples, heated with various rates. Also the methodology of the dilatometric samples preparation and the method of the characteristic points determination was described.

The investigated alloys are the model alloys. Taking into account their chemical compositions the possibility of improving their properties by means of the heat treatment can be expected. The investigations of the carbon influence on microstructures of model alloys with Cr-Mn-Mo were carried out. Broadening the knowledge on the carbon influence on the kinetics of phase transformations during continuous heating from as-quenched state, will help in designing new alloys with a better properties.
