Özet

In this study, solidification of a low alloyed steel used for armor material was simulated at various transformation temperatures by the help of thermodynamical calculations using Thermo-Calc software. Differential thermal analysis (DTA) was carried out to determine the critical transformation temperatures for the phases and results were compared with those calculated by Thermo-Calc. It is concluded that the temperatures calculated by Thermo-Calc software are in good agreement with the results obtained from DTA. These results will be very useful to determine the proper austenization temperature having an important effect on the properties of steel serving as an armor material.
