Abstract:

The incomplete transformation phenomenon was shown to be absent in Fe-C-Mo alloys containing 0.15 - 0.25 C and 2 14 - 4 12 Mo. Four different types of thickening kinetics of grain boundary allotriomorphs were observed in the temperature region at and just above that of the bay in the TTT-diagram. Close to the bay in the richest alloys, growth was found to cease entirely for preceptible intervals. Cessation of growth for sufficiently long times was identified as an essential element for the occurrence of incomplete transformation. Radical changes in ferrite and carbide morphology were catalogued in and below the bay region in a representative Fe-C-Mo alloy. The solute drag-like effect appears to be the primary factor responsible for incomplete transformation, for the complex growth kinetics observed in the present alloys and for the morphological effects in the bay region. Evolution of the interphase boundary structure of alpha sub1 Cu-Zn plates was studied with high-resolution TEM.
