Effect of High Magnetic Field on Diffusion Behavior of Carbon in Pure Iron


Article Preview

The effect of magnetic field on diffusion behavior of carbon in pure iron was investigated. The results showed that the magnetic field can accelerate the carbon diffusion when the magnetic field direction is perpendicular to the carburized direction, and this effect increases with the enhancement of magnetic field intensity.
