Metallographic observations and thermodynamic calculations were used to characterise the solidification and the microstructure formation during casting in three modifications of CF3M steel. By combining the results it was possible to outline the basic microstructure changes which are the same for all three modifications. It was shown that light microscopy is more useful for material characterisation when it is combined with credible thermodynamic predictions, and vice versa.
