(TTT) diagrams or their cousins:
(CTT) diagrams, serious steel
science and serious steel making starts.
Everything we did so far, was only a prolonged foreplay, so to speak. Fun - but
not yet serious.
Like phase diagrams, TTT and CTT diagrams provide a kind of map that enables you to get oriented in the wilderness of steel alloys, structures, processes, and properties. Like phase diagrams once more, TTT or CCT diagrams are easy to read after you learned a few rules - but not so easy to calculate.
I'm going to devote several modules to this topic.
