Modelling and simulation of solidification processes and solid-state phase transformation have become key instruments in the field of alloy development and heat treatment optimization. Apart from equilibrium-controlled processes, also diffusion-based effects need to be considered. This contribution presents some typical approaches at the example of martensitic stainless steels. Important aspects affecting the production and properties of these steels, such as alloying limits with nitrogen, the formation of ledeburitic structures, or the retained austenite content after heat treatment, can be predicted with reasonable accuracy.
