This work deals with the simulation of the growth kinetics of the (FeB/Fe_2B) bilayer and the diffusion zone on a substrate of AISI 316 stainless steel exposed to the powder-pack boriding process, in the temperature range of 1123-1273 K and a time duration ranging from 2 to 10 h. The developed diffusion model employs a set of mass balance equations at the three growth fronts: [(FeB/Fe_2B), (FeB/diffusion zone) and (diffusion zone/substrate)] under certain assumptions, including the effect of the incubation times during the formation of iron borides and the diffusion zone. For this purpose, a computer code written in Matlab (version 6.5) was created to simulate the boriding kinetics. A good concordance was obtained when comparing the experimental parabolic growth constants taken from the literature and the simulated values of the parabolic growth constants: (k_{FeB}, k_1 and k_2). Moreover, the present model was also used to predict the thicknesses of the FeB and Fe_2B layers and the diffusion zone thickness at various treatment times and boriding temperatures. The simulated values were in good agreement with the experimental borided layers thicknesses.
