In Situ Observation of the Nucleation and Growth of Ferrite Laths in the Heat-Affected Zone of EH36-Mg Shipbuilding Steel Subjected to Different Heat Inputs

The nucleation and growth behaviors of ferrite laths in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of EH36-Mg shipbuilding steel with different heat inputs were observed in situ by high-temperature confocal scanning laser microscope (CSLM). It was found that ferrite laths prefer to nucleate on the surface of inclusions instead of grain boundaries under the heat input of 120 kJ/cm, while FSPs are easier to form in 210 kJ/cm due to a significantly reduced cooling rate.
