Analysis and interpretation of data on the evolutionary development of dispersed systems

  • 13 Accesses


We discuss questions concerning the application of systems analysis to alloys containing a dispersed phase. The development of such dispersed systems takes on the form of self-development of an ensemble of polydispersed microparticles distributed in the matrix phase, which we can evaluate from data on analysis of the transformation of their size distributions over time. For the example of vanadium steel containing dispersed carbide phase (cementite + VC carbides), we illustrate the procedure for establishing a correlation between the indices of the transformation of the experimental histograms over time for enlargement of the Fe3C microparticles in the alloy and the internal processes (within the volume) causing such transformations, and also the interpretation of the data obtained and the characteristic features of application of the developed method to a system analysis of the evolution of microparticles of dispersed systems.
