A combination of thermodynamic models as well as some physical metallurgical principles has been used to analyse the influence that V(C, N) precipitates have on the transformation kinetics of acicular ferrite by isothermal decomposition of austenite. Those precipitates were found absolutely necessary for the nucleation of acicular ferrite as reported in Part 1 of this work, now in Part 2, through the proper design of a heat treatment route we have studied the effect that those precipitates have on the kinetics of acicular ferrite transformation.
