This chapter provides a brief account of the phase diagram and the appropriate transformation diagrams for plain carbon steels and several important low-alloy steels, namely constitutional, isothermal transformation, and continuous-cooling diagrams. In addition, the effects of alloying elements in solution in austenite during both isothermal and continuous-cooling treatments are also discussed.
