The Nanohardness of Acicular Ferrite and Bainitic Ferrite in Low Carbon Microalloying Steel
Dynamic continuous stiffness measurement (CSM) nanoindentation method was applied to measure nanohardness in low carbon microalloying steel. The matrix hardness for quenched phase and acicular ferrite calculated through analysis of curves is less fluctuated than the raw results, which shows that the analysis of the curves is helpful for determining matrix hardness.
