Iron-Carbon Equilibrium Diagram

Alloys of the Iron carbon system are of the most vital importance to the modern industry due to their extensive, versatile applications. The Iron carbon system provides the most prominent example of heat treatment and property alteration based on the transformation from one form to other on application of heat and eutectoid decomposition. Because of its outstanding importance, the heat treatment of the iron-carbon system has been studied in more details than most alloy system. Types of steels and cast iron depend upon the percentage of carbon present in the…
