Abstract [en]

The transition between diffusion controlled and massive transformation gamma --> alpha in Fe-C alloys is investigated by means of phase-field simulations and thermodynamic functions assessed by the Calphad technique as well as diffusional mobilities available in the literature. A gradual variation in properties over an incoherent interface, having a thickness around 1 nm, is assumed. The phase-field simulations are compared with a newly developed technique to model solute drag during phase transformations. Both approaches show qualitatively the same behavior and predict a transition to a massive transformation at a critical temperature below the T-0 line and close to the alpha/alpha + gamma phase boundary. It is concluded that the quantitative difference between the two predictions stems from different assumptions on how the properties vary across the phase interface yielding a lower dissipation of Gibbs energy by diffusion in the phase-field simulations. The need for more detailed information about the actual variation in interfacial properties is emphasized.
