Q10. Draw an isothermal transformation diagram for a plain-carboneutectoid steel and indicate the various decomposition products on it.How can such a diagram be constructed by a series of experiments?Q11. If a thin sample of a eutectoid plain-carbon steel is hot-quenchedfrom the austenitic region and held at 700°C until transformation iscomplete, what will be its microstructure?Q12. If a thin sample of a eutectoid plain-carbon steel is water-quenched from the austenitic region to room temperature, what will beits microstructure?Q13. What does the bainite microstructure consist of? What is themicrostructural difference between upper and lower bainite?Q14. Draw time-temperature cooling paths for a 1080 steel on anisothermal transformation diagram that will produce the followingmicrostructures. Start with the steels in the austenitic condition at time= 0 and 850°C.
100 percent martensite,
50 percent martensite and 50 percent coarse pearlite,
100 percent fine pearlite,
50 percent martensite and 50 percent upper bainite,
100 percent upper bainite, and
100 percent lower bainite.Q15. Draw a continuous-cooling transformation diagram for a eutectoidplain-carbon steel. How does it differ from a eutectoid isothermaltransformation diagram for a plain-carbon steel?Q16. Describe the full-annealing heat treatment for a plain-carbonsteel. What types of microstructures are produced by full annealing
a eutectoid steel and
a hypoeutectoid steel?Q17. What is the normalizing heat treatment for steel? What are someof its purposes?Q18. What causes the decrease in hardness during the tempering of aplain-carbon steel?Q19. Describe the martempering (marquenching) process for a plain-carbon steel. Draw a cooling curve for a martempered (marquenched)austenitized eutectoid plain-carbon steel by using an IT diagram. Whattype of microstructure is produced after martempering this steel?
