This book introduces a novel concept of Phase Evolution Diagrams (PED) for determining the residual life of industrial components. PED is based on the simple themodynamic considerations of precipitation proccess and depict the time-dependence of the concentration of carbon (the fingerprint of thermal history of a component) as a function of time in ferritic steels.These arguments based on experimental results [37, 38] can also be supported by referring to the phase diagrams. Figure 3.1(a-d) shows the pseudo-binary diagrams for the Fe-Cr with 0.1% C (a) and the Fe-C diagram with 2% Mo (d) and theanbsp;...
