The formation of austenite by rapid heating has influence on the transformation characteristics on cooling and offers substantial problems concerning the hardenability of steels. And the transformation on rapid heating has merited its importance in the field of strengthening of steels. The increments of transformation temperature from the equilibrium point (A//c//3) in pure iron with increasing heating rate were determined. As one of the results, A//c//3//f was around 1100 degree C at the heating rate of 10**7 degree C/sec. This means that the alpha yields gamma transformation is not intercepted by super-rapid heating.
