    Abstract

    This paper summarizes the experimental techniques used in hot-stage light microscopy and the application of these techniques to ferrous transformations. In the hot-stage microscopy examples, particular emphasis is given on results of the martensite, pearlite, and ferrite transformations studied in this laboratory. Reference is also made to the results of many other investigators who have used the hot-stage microscope as a tool to study kinetics and morphology of ferrous transformations during both heating and cooling conditions.

    Keywords:

    metallography, phase transformations, ferrite, pearlite, bainite, martensite
