Paper Title:
Influence of Cooling Rate and Alloying Elements on Kinetics of Eutectoid Transformation in Spheroidal Graphite Cast Iron
  Abstract

Paper deals with influence of cooling rate and alloying elements on kinetics of eutectoid transformation in spheroidal graphite cast iron (SGI). Transformation of austenite can proceed into ferrite and graphite (FeFeG) and/or in pearlite (Fe  FeFe3C). Examination of eutectoid transformation was made by evaluating the “in-situ” dilatation curves together with metallographic examinations, DTA, and dilatation analyses in solid state. ThermoCalc software was applied for thermodynamic calculations of phase equilibria. Based on numerous quantitative relations, such as relation between fractions of ferrite and pearlite in the as-cast SGI that was determined by analysis of dilatometric curves and taking into account also composition of melt, ferrite/pearlite ratio in the microstructure could be determined in a very short time. Thus the melt composition could be corrected by adding Cu and/or Mn or Si, respectively, using the "in situ" dilatation analyses. Characteristic temperatures of eutectoid transformation have been established from the kinetics of austenite transformation and from temperature dependence of ferrite and/or pearlite growth. Kinetics curves that enable to determine fractions of single microstructure constituents in the microstructure as function of transformation time, mainly used for ferrite and pearlite SGI, can be well determined with physical sigmoidal Boltzmann model.
