ABSTRACT
The in situ x-ray diffraction observations of the bainitic transformation were conducted by using the high-temperature x-ray diffraction technique. The volume fraction and carbon content of austenite depend on the transformation temperature. The d{110} value of bainitic ferrite decreases with increasing austempering temperature, which is related to the decrease of carbon concentration in bainitic ferrite. Asymmetry diffraction peaks are obtained for samples at the early stage of transformation at any austempering temperatures. This asymmetry diffraction peak after the formation of bainitic ferrite could be attributed to a heterogeneous distribution of carbon in different regions of austenite and show that two types of austenite with different carbon contents, low-carbon austenite (?LC) and the high-carbon austenite (?HC), exist during the transformation. The microstructure after cooling down to room temperature is presented to show the effectiveness of the x-ray diffraction analysis.
