Evolution of the carbide subsystem in steel 38KhN3MFA quenched to martensite upon low-temperature maintenance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Electron diffraction microscopy is used to study the carbide phase liberated in crystals of laminar high temperature martensite during low temperature tempering. A qualitative and quantitative description of new phase interaction behavior during interaction with stress fields created during γ-α-martensite conversion is given. It is shown that the controlling parameters regulating changes in the carbide subsystem are the isothermal temperature and the duration of the tempering period.
