Effect of austenitizing temperature on the bainitic transformation in a high-carbon high-silicon steel
The effect of austenitizing temperature (880 - 1000°C) on the incubation period and bainitic transformation in steel 0.88% C - 1.35% Si - 1.0% Cr - 0.43% Mn is studied by the methods of x-ray diffraction and optical and transmission electron microscopy. The effect of the austenitizing temperature on the temperature and incubation period of the nose of the C-curve of the bainitic transformation is determined. The influence of a 20-min hold at 250°C after the austenitizing on the bainitic structure is studied.
