A Probabilistic Approach to Analyze Austenite to Ferrite Transformation in Fe-Ni System
Dilatometer is often used for in situ measurement of phase transformation by monitoring the length change during heating or cooling cycle. However, the inevitable temperature gradient across the specimen length during inductive heating, introduces uncertainty in temperature measurements and hence the associated phase transformation kinetics. Due to this uncertainty, it is more meaningful to interpret the transformation kinetics from dilatometry in terms transformation ranges instead of unique values of fraction transformed. In the present work, a probabilistic approach has been used to predict the fraction transformed ranges, arising due to the temperature gradient during dilatometry. The approach has been validated for Fe-5.93 at.% Ni undergoing austenite to ferrite phase transformation at various constant cooling rates.
