Latent heats of phase transformations in iron and steels
Mamoru Tajima, Yoshio Umeyama
The latent heat and the temperature of phase transformations in iron and steel have been measured by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The samples were provided in the form of cylinders 3 mm in diameter and 3 mm long. The tests on the DSC apparatus were conducted with a heating process to 1000 °C at a constant rate of 5 °C min-1 and with a cooling process to 300 °C at the same rate.
