Some effects of partial transformation of austenite at one subcritical temperature on the isothermal transformation characteristics of the residual aust- enite at a different temperature are described. Formulae are presented for calculating from the chemi- cal composition of a steel the progress of martensite formation with decrease of temperature during rapid cooling. The general features of continuous-cooling transformation diagrams of alloy steels are discussed with reference to a selection of typical diagrams. The practical significance of diagrams of this type is indicated. The relative hardenabilities of a number of steels are compared using several available methods of assessment. The various methods are shown to give dissimilar results.
