Chapter 8: Solid-State Transformations
This chapter discusses the characteristics of eutectoid transformations, a type of solid-state transformation associated with invariant reactions, focusing on the iron-carbon system of steel. It describes the compositions, characteristics, and properties of ferrite, eutectoid, hypoeutectoid, and hypereutectoid structures and how they are affected by the addition of various alloying elements. The chapter also discusses the formation of peritectoid structures in the uranium-silicon alloy system.
