Diffusion and Transformation of Eutectic Carbides in High-Speed Steels during Heat Treatment
The structure and phase composition of high-speed steels of different grades after casting, annealing, and subsequent final heat treatment (quenching and tempering) have been studied focusing on diffusion processes. In order to investigate kinetics of both the structure and phase transformations in eutectic carbides upon heat treatments, different techniques of optical microscopy, electron microscopy (both scanning and transmission ones), X-ray diffraction, and energy dispersive X-ray analysis have been used.
