In Situ Analysis of Effects of Transformation Strain on the Austenite Phase during Martenistic Transformation of Cr-Ni Steel
A hybrid in-situ observation system has been developed to study the phase transformation behaviour simultaneously in both real and reciprocal lattice space. This paper presents the development of the observation system. Furthermore, as an example of the application of our developed system, martensitic transformation of Cr–Ni steel along a designed thermal cycle was in-situ tracked with the developed system. As a result of analysing the time-resolved X-ray diffraction data for the observed target, our system could directly detect the effect of transformation strain on austenite during martensitic transformation.
