Unformatted text preview: DATA: enthalpy of transformation, ∆ H = 0.6 RT e molar volume of α , V α = 15 cm 3 mol-1 lattice parameter in α , a o = 3.2 x 10-8 cm surface energy along α-β , γ αβ = 40 erg cm-2 lattice diffusivities at 900 K, D L = 10-10 cm 2 s-1 diffusivity across α-β interface at 900 K, D I = 10-9 cm 2 s-1 2. Assuming interface-reaction controlled growth, it can be shown that the volume fraction transformed in a first-order phase transformation, X, as a function of time, t, at a constant temperature is given by X = 1 − exp − kt n ( ) where k is a constant which is a function of nucleation and growth rates. Show that n is between 1 and 2 in a fiber....
