The Role of α/γ Orientation Relationships during Ferrite Nucleation in an Fe-Cr-Ni Alloy


Article Preview

The role of the α/γ orientation relationships during ferrite nucleation is investigated. EBSD measurements were performed on an especially developed high purity ternary iron-based alloy with 20 wt.% Cr and 12 wt.% Ni with both austenite and ferrite present at room temperature to measure the orientation relationship between the austenite and ferrite crystallites. The experimental results are compared to the nucleation models of Clemm and Fisher and Aaronson and co-workers.
