A Study of the Microstructure and Grain Size at the Welding Heat Affected Zone of a Ferrite Stainless Steel
A method of Monte Carlo combined with welding experiments was adopted to study the grain size and microstructure in welding heat affected zone of the ferrite stainless steel. Firstly, the kinetic equation of grain growth was established with the experimental data . Then , a simulation procedure based on the kinetic equation was worked out. Agreement between Monte Carlo simulation result and the real experiment results was obtained.
