It could be seen that the grain size is proportional to the diameter of powders. The dendrite morphology can be obviously observed in Fe The structure morphology of Fe A precipitated phase in nano size can be observed in all these three powders highlighted by red circle and arrows. Figure 5d shows the selected area electron diffraction SADP of the precipitated phase, which are identified as austenite phase.

In a separate paper on maraging steels [ 1 ] the importance of the choice of ageing heat-treatments in producing different precipitate populations was described. It was shown that significant mechanical property improvements could be made by the choice of austenisation temperature: However, it was found that there was a trade-off between ductility and the other properties.
Grain size refinement by thermomechanical processing has a potential advantage over ageing treatments in that it has been found that it can improve a range of mechanical properties at the same time, including ductility, strength, creep and fatigue.
The work of Petch [ 2 ] based on the experiments of Hall [ 3 ] established the importance of the grain size on the strength of an alloy.
The relationship between grain size and a range of mechanical properties have been modelled and measured, including strength [ 24 ], ductile to brittle transition [ 56 ], creep [ 78 ] and fatigue [ 910 ].
Structure and Phase Transition of Fe-Mn Alloy Powders Prepared by Gas Atomization
The majority of this work has been based on alloys with an equiaxed grain size, but with maraging steels there is an added complication of multiple definitions of what constitutes size since a martensitic microstructure consists of a number of prior austenite grains PAG each of which consist of packets, blocks and laths.
A packet is a region that consists of a number of parallel laths with the same habit planes. These laths can either be slightly misorientated or have very different orientations from each other, whereas a block is a series of laths with similar orientation.
The use of orientation mapping by EBSD has allowed a greater understanding of the martensitic microstructure and allowed the determination of block sizes that is not possible to determine by standard microscopy [ 1112 ]. This understanding of block sizes has led some researchers [ 13 ] to conclude that the block size, and not the packet or PAG size as previously thoughtis the controlling size element in the yield strength of a martensitic alloy.
Ageing heat-treatments will change the strength of the alloy and can embrittle it, however they are not expected to influence the relationship between strengthening and grain size [ 14 ]. In this paper, we consider how the microstructure influences the mechanical properties of a maraging steel by considering two different PAG sizes and two different heat-treatments.
