Development of Microstructure in the Fusion Zone of Steel Weld Deposits

B. Gretoft, H.K.D.H. Bhadeshia, L.-E. Svensson


A recent computer model for the prediction of microstructure in low-alloy steel weld deposits is modified to account for the presence of solidification-induced alloying element segregation. The new model is tested on Fe-Mn-Si-Ni-C alloys and the results indicate that segregation can significantly increase the amount of allotriomorphic ferrite in the microstructure by making its nucleation relatively easy.
