Modeling of Phase Changes of Hypo Eutectoid Steels
Austenitic steels have low carbon content and belong to the hypo eutectoid range such as SS304, SS304L and SS316. These steels are preferred material for nuclear welded structures. The computational modeling of the welding process is required to compute the distortion and residual stresses. This work is about the phase changes and incorporation of the alloy elements in the Iron – iron carbide diagram.
