Effects of Transformation Temperature on Variant Grouping of Bainitic Ferrite in Low Carbon Steel
Effects of transformation temperature on variant grouping tendency of bainitic ferrite in a low carbon low alloy steel transformed isothermally are investigated by means of electron backscatter diffraction analysis. Baintic variants of Kurdjumov-Sachs (K-S) orientation relationship belonging to the same Bain correspondence tend to form adjacently in the bainite structure formed at 823K, while the K-S variants sharing the same close-packed plane parallel relation form adjacently in the bainite structure formed at 723K and lath martensite formed by quenching.
