Some aspects of kinetic parameters determination in nucleation and growth phase transitions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This work assesses the correct way of applying the theory of isothermal kinetics to nonisothermal transformations, stresses the sources of confusion, and points to the mathematical and physical errors that commonly appear in the literature. It is shown that only transformations where the nucleation rate is zero can be properly analyzed. The general nonisothermal equation for the fraction transformed is proven to be the sound and sole foundation for the correct deduction of the transformation kinetic parameters.
