Austenitization is an inevitable occurrence during the heat treatment of steels. Despite this consideration, less attention has been paid so far to the study of the formation of austenite as compared with the vast amount of research on its decomposition. That is because the steel properties depend basically on the transformation processes following austenitization. However, the initial austeniti
