Phase Transformations in a Round Bar

Application ID: 75391


This model simulates phase transformations in an austenitized round bar during cooling. The austenite decomposition into phases like ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite is shown to depend on the thermal history that the material in the bar undergoes. The effects of phase transformation latent heat are included in the analysis.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
