This chapter describes some of the most essential tools in metallurgy and what they reveal about the structure, composition, and processing requirements of steel. It begins by identifying important details in the constitutional diagram of iron-cementite. It then explains how to read isothermal transformation and continuous-cooling diagrams and how to recognize the effect of various alloying elements.
