~ Quiz 7 Name "Why Study Phase Transfonnations in Metals?", 1 The Callister text begins Chapter 10 with the question Your opinion please! For examRle, a phase transformation signifies structural changes, hence property changes, hence difference in potential applications. Perhaps, one can control or modify transformations to get desired structural and property combinations, hence tailor to applications. Here is the text chapter response Why Study Phase Transformations in Metals? The development of a set of desirable mechanical characteristics for a material often results from a phase transformation, which is wrought by a heat treatment. The time and temperature dependencies of some phase transformations are conveniently rep- resented on modified phase diagrams. It is impor- tant to know how to use these diagrams in order to design a heat treatment for some alloy that will yield the desired room-temperature mechanical properties. For example, the tensile strength of an iron-carbon alloy of eutectoid colJlposition (0.76
