Transformation Diagram Computation
Application ID: 75491
During quenching of steel, austenite decomposes into phases such as ferrite, pearlite, bainite, and martensite. A common way to illustrate the phase transformation characteristics of a particular steel alloy is to use transformation diagrams. Two of the most commonly used diagram types are the CCT (Continuous Cooling Transformation) and the TTT (Time Temperature Transformation) diagrams. This example shows how to compute CCT and TTT diagrams based on temperature-dependent phase transformation data.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
