Sample text

Considerable judgment is often required in constructing an 1-T diagram from experimental data, and equal judgment is required in its interpretation with respect to conditions different from those under which it was determined. The experienced user will not read into an 1-T diagram an unduly high degree of accuracy, nor condemn it because it is not always based upon a complete set of highly precise measurements. The use of a dashline to the left of the 2second coordinate has been explained as representing a relatively high degree of uncertainty as to the exact location of the line in this region.

The composition, volume, and temperature of the isothermal bath. When quenching in a lead-alloy bath such as is commonly used in determining an I-T diagram, rapid movement of the specimen through the bath is especially desirable since mechanical stirrers are relatively ineffective in agitating such a heavy liquid. Consequently, an accurate evaluation of the time to reach bath temperature after immersion is rarely feasible. When transformation begins within a few seconds and proceeds rapidly as in the "nose" region of a plain carbon steel, the time required for the specimen to reach the temperature of the bath is a considerable portion of the total time required for transformation.

3. Schematic chart illustrating relationship of quench and temper type of hardening treatment to a typical I-T diagram Application of the I-T diagram to martempering is illustrated in Fig. 4. In this heat treating process, the steel is quenched into a bath at a temperature in the vicinity of M, and held in the bath until the center of the piece reaches bath temperature, after which it is removed and allowed to cool in air. Again, if complete hardening is to occur, austenite must cool with sufficient rapidity to avoid transformation at the "nose" of the 1-T diagram.
