Model for Boron Effects in Steel Welds

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia and L.-E. Svensson


Boron is often used as a trace addition in steel welds to control the formation of phases which initiate at the austenite grain surfaces. This work deals with a quantitative model for the effect of boron on the development of microstructure in steel welds as they cool after solidification. The theory is compared with experimental data and found to give reasonable agreement.
