Download Effect of grain size on the mechanical properties of ferritic nodular irons.

All solid metals are crystalline and the crystals or grains are made up of several atoms. The grain size has an important effect on the mechanical properties of a metal.

The size of the grains depends upon a number of factors, but the principal one is. mechanical properties of as cast ferritic nodular cast irons. Materials Science and T echnology, Maney Publishing,vol. 28, pp. Ferritic spheroidal graphite irons with nodularity from 72% to 96% were prepared.

The relationship between the nodularity and the mechanical properties of the ferritic spheroidal graphite iron was. Ferritic nodular iron can be supplied as steel plate/ sheet, round steel bar, steel tube/pipe, steel stripe, steel billet, steel ingot, steel wire rods. electroslag, forged ring/ block,etc.

TEL:+ FAX: + The effect of grain size is greatest on properties that are related to the early stages of deforma- tion. Thus, for example, yield stress is more dependent on grain size than ten- sile strength [2, 3]. Fine-grain steels do not harden quite as deeply and have less tendency to crack than coarse-grain steels File Size: KB.

Bainitic iron showed a good combination of high strength (about MPa) and toughness, and had a lower transition temperature to that of ferritic iron. Improved mechanical properties in the. An attempt has been made to evaluate the microstructure and Effect of grain size on the mechanical properties of ferritic nodular irons.

Although most gray irons contain some titanium and the effect of titanium on the mechanical properties has been investigated many times, it is only recently that Sissener and Eriksson[13] have reported the effect of titanium reduced from a titanium containing slag in an electric arc furnace.

virtue of its study of effects on castings. As we know, there is small change in the chemical composition, the wide effects on the mechanical properties and their microstructure. The chemical compositions in ductile iron are always considered in the range. So that it is difficult to achieve the targeted mechanical properties.

irons with ferritic-pearlitic structures. The ferritic-pearlitic matrix consists of halos of ferrite around the nodules and pearlite away from them (last to freeze areas), giving the so-called bulls-eye structure illustrated in Fig.

One of the most relevant advantages of nodular cast iron is their extensive application in the as-cast condition. mechanical properties of the mater The dissolution of Niobium in NCIs seems to be difficult and studies indicate that this is linked to the low working temperature and to the high Carbon content of cast irons15, The present study investigates the influence of a range of Niobium contents ( to wt%) on the microstructure.

The mechanical properties of a cast iron are largely controlled by the graphite content and Fig. indicates the relationship between CE value, UTS and section thickness (i.e. cooling rate) and the resultant microstructure. It is seen that white cast iron (hard and unmachinable) is formed at low CE values and rapid cooling, whereas grey.

equivalent a ferritic ductile cast iron can be obtained which satisfies the brand GGG Keywords: ductile cast iron, ferrite structure, mechanical properties. InTRoDUCTIon Good technological properties of ductile irons are that they are chemically related to the eutectic iron-carbon alloys, as are ordinary gray irons.

Removing. Therefore, through the years its prevention has become a fundamental design criterion. The objective of this study was to compare the microstructure, mechanical and fatigue properties of two types of the nodular cast irons – ferrite-pearlitic nodular cast iron alloyed by Si and Mo and pearlite-ferritic nodular cast iron alloyed by Si and Cu.

The chemical composition and mechanical properties of a parent material selected for the study are shown in Table 1 shows the microstructure of the as-cast nodular with graphite nodules in a matrix. The specimens having the shape of bars of 20 mm in diameter and mm in length were cut for friction welding process.

Mechanical Properties. The results of the static mechanical properties of the investigated alloys are shown in Table 3. Minimum values for UTS and YS of MPa and MPa, respectively, can be observed in Y II samples for alloy 1 with the lowest Si content of wt%.

This is due to the lowest Si content of wt%, which leads to a weak. n, nt, A Report on the Effect Upon Mechanical Properties of Variation in Graphite Form in Irons Having Varying Amounts of Ferrite and Pearlite in the Matrix Structure and the Use of ND Tests in the Assessments of Mechanical Properties of Cast Irons, AFS Trans., No, pp.Fully ferritic, fully pearlitic, and pearlitic–ferritic ductile cast irons were investigated.

It was observed that in the pearlitic–ferritic grade a crack could initiate and grow from a nodule into the surrounding ferrite and then stop at the pearlite grain boundary, thus constituting a ferrite defect size.

changes the average grain size which has a significant effect on mechanical properties, yield and tensile strengths, of the samples. The 85%UR has larg-est average grain size but has both the lowest tensile strength and elongation at break.

It was validated that by a combination of different degree of cold working and annealing temperature it. In this study, ductile Ni-resist with a minimum nickel content of 18 wt% was modified.

Up to 12 wt% manganese was added together with 10 wt% nickel to investigate the effects of the alloying elements on the solidification, microstructure and mechanical properties of the Ni-resist. Table 2 lists the various mechanical properties of CG irons in this investigation.

The effects of Ti addition and casting size on the mechanical properties of CG iron are depicted in Fig. The contradicting effects mentioned above made the properties of Brinell hardness and elongation stay relatively un-changed for CG irons with or without Ti.

reduction of mechanical properties of ferritic stainless steels under fire conditions is largely unknown. In the present work, an experimental research programme was carried out to investigate the mechanical properties of various ferritic stainless steels at temperatures up to °C.

specimens after ferritizing annealing are ferritic nodular cast irons. The content of ferrite in the matrix is 98 % or more; pearlite occurs only in a few isolated cases. Graphite occurs only in a perfectly-nodular and imperfectly-nodular shape in all the specimens.

The shape, size and count of. The increased use of nodular cast irons concerns many applications, especially in automotive, engineering equipment and non-automotive transportation industries [2, 3]. The significant interest in fully ferritic nodular cast iron by foundries is due its structural homogeneity, remarkable ductility and good machining properties.

This article addresses the effect of cooling rate on microstructure and mechanical properties as determined by changing molding media and section size. The research was conducted for thin-walled iron castings with mm wall thickness and for the reference casting with mm wall thickness, using different molding materials (silica sand and insulating sand “LDASC”) to achieve.

Microstructure and properties Ferrite. It has a BCC structure and it is relatively ductile and soft. Hardness varies from HB. In ductile irons the ferrite is around the graphite nodule and it can be extended to the grain boundaries. Pearlite. Is a mix of laminate ferrite with cementite. It has a good strength but poor ductility and the.

Also the impact properties of ferritic cast iron are affected by the quantity of graphite nodules and the nodularity; as the nodules become larger in size or its count increases, the mechanical properties decrease accordingly.

Based on it, we have two factors that influence the impact properties in the current study: the ferrite content and. Effect Upon Mechanical Properties of Variation in Graphite Form in Irons Having Varying Amounts of Ferrite and Pearlite in the Matrix Structure and the Use of ND Tests in the Assessments of Mechanical Properties of Cast Irons, AFS Trans., No, pp.From experimental works we can formulate following partial conclusions.

Cast irons typically contain wt% of carbon with a high silicon concentrations and a greater concentration of impurities than steels. The carbon equivalent (CE) of a cast iron helps to distinguish the grey irons which cool into a microstructure containing graphite and and the white irons where the carbon is present mainly as cementite.

The effect of nodularity on pearlitic Ductile Irons can be determined in Figure and Figure by comparing the tensile properties, at constant carbide levels, of irons with nodularities of 90, 70 and 40%. These Figures reveal two important features.

Effect of alloying elements on S.G Cast iron Magnesium treatment and carbide in the structure 14 mechanical properties of ductile irons related directly to the strength and properties by 46 N/mm2. In the ferritic irons increase in tensile strength and. The constitutive properties of cast-iron materials depend on the graphite morphology and the characteristics of the metallic matrix.

Specifically, in the nodular cast-iron, these properties are affected by the spheroidicity of the graphite and the volume fractions of the ferritic. (a) All values are estimated minimum values; type series steels are rated on the basis of % max Si or coarse-grain melt- ing practice; the mechanical properties shown are expected minimums for the sizes ranging from 19 to mm ( to in.).

(b) Most. Figure shows the effect of carbon on this ternary phase diagram at the 2 % silicon level. Figure shows the effect of silicon on the critical temperatures for typical cast irons. This relationship, the desired carbon content in the austenite and the need to dissolve carbides, are the primary determinants of the correct austenitizing.This microstructural characterization, which provides the basis for the description and modeling of the tensile properties of GJS alloy, subject of a second part of this investigation, highlights that higher cooling rates refines microstructural features, such as graphite nodule count and average ferritic grain size.

The continuous matrix increases mechanical properties and makes these irons comparable with some steels. Figure 6 shows the microstructure of two ductile cast irons evidencing the effect of copper on the amount of pearlite. The base chemical composition for both irons is %C, %Si and %Mn.
