    • Abstract


      A brief review of the issues involved in modelling of the solid state transformation kinetics is presented. The fact that apart from the standard thermodynamic parameters, certain path variables like heating or cooling rate can also exert a crucial influence on the kinetic outcome is stressed. The kinetic specialties that are intrinsic to phase changes proceeding under varying thermal history are enumerated. A simple and general modelling methodology for understanding the kinetics of non-isothermal transformations is outlined.
