Chapter 10: Isothermal and Continuous Cooling Transformation Diagrams
Isothermal and continuous cooling transformation (CT) diagrams help users map out diffusion-controlled phase transformations of austenite to various mixtures of ferrite and cementite. This chapter discusses the application as well as limitations of these engineering tools in the context of heat treating eutectoid, hypoeutectoid, and proeutectoid steels. It also provides references to large collections of transformation diagrams and includes several diagrams that plot quenching and hardening transformations as a function of bar diameter.
