Prof Sir H K D Bhadeshia

A course covering the most important solid-state phase transformations that occur in steels. This includes atomic mechanisms, thermodynamics, kinetics, microstructural development and the design of steels, supported by specific case studies. The material is introduced in sufficient detail to enable the quantitative design of steels based on the fundamental aspects described above.

This lecture course will cover:

  • Martensite in steels
  • Bainite in steels
  • Alloy design: strong bainite
  • Widmanstaetten ferrite
  • Allotriomorphic ferrite
  • Pearlite
  • Overall transformation kinetics
  • TRIP steels
  • TWIP steels
  • Mitigation of residual stress
  • Bulk nanostructured steel
