Gibbs Phase Rule P + F = C + 2 P: # of phases F: Degrees of freedom C: # of components Normally, pressure = 1 atm P + F = C + 1 or F = C - P + 1 Apply to eutectic phase diagram 1 phase field: F = 2 – 1 + 1 = 2 Change T and C independently in phase field 2 phase field: F = 2 – 2 + 1 = 1 C depends on T – not independent 3 phase point: F = 2 – 3 +1 = 0 C and T defined only at one point (Eutectic point) (no degrees of freedom)

Chapter 10: Phase Transformations ISSUES TO ADDRESS . .. • Transforming one phase into another takes time. • How does the rate of transformation depend on time and T? Fe γ± (Austenite) Eutectoid transformation C FCC Fe 3 C (cementite) α (ferrite) + (BCC) • How can we slow the transformation so that we can engineer non-equilibrium structures? • Are the properties of non-equilibrium structures improved?
