Abstract

Vanadium addition to a hypereutectoid Fe-Mn-C alloy decreases the proportion of specific orientation relationship between ferrite in intergranular pearlite and the adjacent austenite grains because many pearlite grains nucleate at (MnS+VC) or VC precipitates formed at austenite grain boundaries, whereas pearlite grows from the proeutectoid cementite at austenite grain boundaries in the vanadium-free alloy.
