Prediction of Ferrite Transformation in Nb-Containing Microalloyed Steels during Continuous Cooling
This paper considers for transformation behavior of Nb microalloyed steels, experiments had demonstrated the effect of Nb was obvious: lowered start temperature of ferrite transformation remarkably and forming more refined ferrite grain size. In this study, computer simulation of Nb-containing steels transformation during continuous cooling was carried out by adopting a classical nucleation and growth theory, the model was derived based on the theories and the experimental results, and the calculated start temperatures of ferrite transformation were compared with the results of experimental.
