Normalised low carbon steel, showing directionality

By University of Cambridge DoITPoMS and University of Leeds Department of Materials Dr R F Cochrane


Wrought iron contains a very low amount of carbon. The resulting microstructure is therefore virtually all of the ferrite phase, since upon reaching the eutectic temperature virtually all of the austenite will have transformed to ferrite. The remainder of the microstructure consists of stringers of slag, which are unaffected by normalisation.
