Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A novel procedure to calculate TTT curves of mold slags is demonstrated in this work. This is based on the integration under isothermal conditions of a Kissinger-type rate equation using rate parameters determined from differential thermal analysis (DTA). The estimated TTT curves agree very well with transformations observed metallographically by inspecting thin glass disks treated isothermally and quenched.
