For understanding and describing the materials behaviour during phase transformations, dilatometer measurements are commonly used in the scientific community. Generally, standard CCT diagrams are generated by means of dilatometer experiments. However, in many cases, real weld cycles are more suitable for studying the materials behaviour instead of using CCT diagrams. In this regard we talk about so-called in-situ diagrams. In this work, two different devices have been used to obtain CCT as well as in-situ diagrams of a low alloyed steel 10GN2MFA. The goal was to compare the results obtained on the one hand by using a widely used standard dilatometer (Bähr DIL-805A/D) and on the other hand by the usage of a thermomechanical simulator called Gleeble®3800. The paper should finally show advantages as well as disadvantages of using different devices and to keep in mind that the optimal measurement method depends on different parameters. Realized experiments also have revealed the range of operational and diagnostic potential of used devices.
