MY2100 – Ch 11, Part 2, Slide 1 Summary of Microconstituents in steels The following form on slow cooling of γ in compositions different than the eutectoid: Primary α Primary Fe 3 C ( α + Fe 3 C) microconstituents (all form below the eutectoid temp.): Pearlite (slow cooling) Bainite (quicker cooling) Tempered martensite (formed by re-heating martensite) Martensite (formed by quenching γ very quickly)

MY2100 – Ch 11, Part 2, Slide 3 How do we keep all this straight? For every commercial steel, there are two diagrams available that give you the processing window for making different microconstituents. Isothermal transformation (IT) diagrams (curves) Continuous cooling transformation (CCT) diagrams (curves) In this class, we will only look at IT diagrams for eutectoid steels,
