Project 8


Title Modelling martensite formation and austenite retention
Host institution Ruukki (part of SSAB), Tornio, Finland
Brief description The overall goal of this project is a model for the formation of lath martensite – austenite mixtures for a general steel composition (within specific limits) and cooling path from austenite during direct quenching.
