Determination of Critical Points of Hypoeutectoid Steels / Wyznaczanie Punktów Krytycznych W Stalach Podeutektoidalnych

Open access

The paper presents a new approach to interpretation of hypoeutectoid steel dilatograms upon heating between the austenite start and austenite finish temperatures. The proposed derivative curve separation method yields data which accords with the experimental results. Besides the new method appears a useful tool whereby it becomes possible to confirm the evidence reported earlier in literature that when a hypoeutectoid steel heats up to between the A1 and the A3 both ferrite and pearlite start to transform into austenite almost at the same time.
