Simplified thermodynamic model for pro-eutectoid ferrite formation in multicomponent structural steel

Journal Article


Abstract


  • By introducing a parameter of difference in ferrite formation temperature between binary Fe-C and multicomponent system, and referring to the thermodynamic model for Fe-C binary system, a simplified thermodynamic model for pro-eutectoid ferrite formation in Fe-∑Xi-C multicomponent structural steels (Xi = Mn, Si, Mo, Cr, Ni or Ti, etc) was suggested. The comparison of the calculated Ae3 temperatures with the measured data of steels 42 shows that the relative standard deviation and root-mean-square (RMS) error between them are only 0.71% and 8.92 K, respectively. However, the deviations between the same measured data and the values calculated from the superelement model are as high as 1.86% and 23.83 K, respectively. It can be concluded that the simplified thermodynamic model for pro-eutectoid ferrite formation in multicomponent structural steels is acceptable and the calculated Ae3 temperatures are in good agreement with the experimental data.
