Abstract
A mathematical model was developed utilizing the Kolmogorov-Johnson-Mehl-Avrami theory that accurately describes phase transformations upon continuous cooling in zirconium-niobium binary alloys. This model relates fraction of phase transformed to kinetic parameters that were calculated from experimental test results in order to model the phase transformation for various cooling rates from 10-40°C/minute.
