Can anyone analyze microstructures? (Steel AISI D2)

  1. May 21, 2015 #1
    I am doing a work in Materials, and we were supposed to do an austemper (bainitic temper) in the steel AISI D2.
    I got this microstructures, but i cant recognize what's in it.

    Can someone help? Captura de ecrã 2015-05-21, às 14.58.43.png Captura de ecrã 2015-05-21, às 14.58.34.png Captura de ecrã 2015-05-21, às 14.58.25.png Captura de ecrã 2015-05-21, às 14.58.14.png

    have you tried looking through the asm handbook of metals (i think metallography volume has changed once or twice). 2004 is volume 9. at a glance i would say carbides in a ferrite matrix, but im not sure about the matrix.

    The matrix would be bainite.
