Summary

A micro-simulation model is presented which enables fundamental investigation of microstructure formation in technical multi-phase alloys. The model which is based on a phase field approach combined with solute diffusion calculations, addresses diffusion- and curvature-controlled non-equilibrium processes. The model has been applied to simulate the microstructure evolution in Fe-C during different steps of production, i.e. dendritic growth, peritectic transformation, grain growth and austenite/ferrite transformation. As a first step towards multicomponent steels, a simulation of ternary Fe-C-Mn is shown.
