German term or phrase: GOS-Linie
In a patent for a method for rolling steel strips, in regard to temperature adjustment, the following phrase appears:
"...auf eine Temperatur nahe oberhalb der GOS-Linie des Eisenkohlenstoffdiagramms, d.h. nahe oberhald der Starttemperatur der Umwandlung von Austenit in Ferrit."
I'm pretty clear on what they're talking about, and I've seen lots of the iron-carbon phase diagrams they mention, but none of the ones I've seen refer to this line by any recognizable name. Does anyone know the English term for GOS-Linie?
Thanks,
Sam

1965. KÖRBER, F., AND OELSEN, W. [Thermodynamic Considerations on Some of the Equilibrium Curves in the Iron-Carbon Condition Diagram.] Arch. Eisenhüttenw., vol. 5, 1932, pp. 569-578; Chem. Abs., vol. 26, 1932, p. 5483.


http://www.fischer-tropsch.org/Bureau_of_Mines/lit-abs/1900/...
Because of the uncertainty existing, the shape and coordinates of the saturation lines of γ-mixed crystals in a- and β-Fe (GOS) AND IN CEMENTITE (SE) were calculated thermodynamically from the heat-content curves of pure Fe given in the literature. The calculated GOS-line is convex to the concentration axis and the SE-line is straight, in agreement with numerous experimental results.

I talked to a metallurgical engineer with a company that I work for, and he said these lines correspond to a temperature. The "Starttemperatur der Umwandlung von Austenit in Ferrit" is usually called the transformation start line, or the A1 line (A = austenite), but he had never heard of GOS.

Based on the web references, I'd suggest leaving GOS line as is in your translation.

Hope this helps!
