  3. Effect of fast neutron irradiation on tensile properties of AISI 304 stainless steel and alloy Ti-6Al-4V

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: → The σy and σUTS of AISI 304 steel increased with fluence and markedly at 4.8 x 1018 n cm-2. → Ductility of the AISI 304 steel is reduced slightly even up to highest fluence. → Marked decrease in σy and relatively less decrease in σUTS occur in the alloy Ti-6Al-4V. → Reduction in ductility occurs in Ti-6Al-4V even at low fluence of 1.2 x 1018 n cm-2. → Both the materials are shown phase instability resulting from neutron irradiation. - Abstract: Effect of fast neutron irradiation at low fluence level of ∼1018 ncm-2, on tensile properties of AISI 304 stainless steel and titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V, was studied at ambient temperature. Flat tensile specimens, subjected to fast neutron irradiation to three different fluences of 0.6 x 1018, 1.2 x 1018 and 4.8 x 1018 ncm-2, in a reactor, were tested at ambient temperature. It was observed that yield strength and tensile strength of the AISI 304 stainless steel increased marginally, upto the fluence level of 1.2 x 1018 ncm-2, but significantly at the highest fluence of 4.8 x 1018 ncm-2. However there was only nominal decrease in ductility due to neutron irradiation. On the other hand, in the alloy Ti-6Al-4V there was fall both in strength as well as ductility with increase in neutron fluence. Ductility was found to decrease upto the fluence of 1.2 x 1018 ncm-2 and remained constant at higher fluences. Phase instability was revealed by X-ray diffraction in both the neutron irradiated materials.

    In this study, an alumina (Al2O3) ceramic powder was sprayed onto an AISI H13 hot-work tool steel substrate that was subjected to sanding and ultrasonic nanocrystalline surface modification (UNSM) treatment processes. The significance of the UNSM technique on the adhesive failure of the Al2O3 coating and on the hardness of the substrate was investigated. The adhesive failure of the coating sprayed onto sanded and UNSM-treated substrates was investigated by a micro-scratch tester at an incremental load. It was found, based on the obtained results, that the coating sprayed onto the UNSM-treated substrate exhibited a better resistance to adhesive failure in comparison with that of the coating sprayed onto the sanded substrate. Dry friction and wear property of the coatings sprayed onto the sanded and UNSM-treated substrates were assessed by means of a ball-on-disk tribometer against an AISI 52100 steel ball. It was demonstrated that the UNSM technique controllably improved the adhesive failure of the Al2O3 coating, where the critical load was improved by about 31%. Thus, it is expected that the application of the UNSM technique to an AISI H13 tool steel substrate prior to coating may delay the adhesive failure and improve the sticking between the coating and the substrate thanks to the modified and hardened surface.

    Full Text Available Present design trends in automotive manufacture have shifted emphasis to alternative lightweight materials in order to achieve higher fuel efficiency and to bring down vehicle emission. Although some other joining techniques are more and more being used, spot welding still remains the primary joining method in automobile manufacturing so far. Spot welds for automotive applications should have a sufficiently large diameter, so that nugget pullout mode is the dominant failure mode. Interfacial mode is unacceptable due to its low load carrying and energy absorption capability. Strength tests with different static loading were performed in, to reveal the failure mechanisms for the lap-shear geometry and the cross-tension geometry. Based on the literature survey performed, venture into this work was amply motivated by the fact that a little research work has been conducted to joining of dissimilar materials like non ferrous to ferrous. Most of the research works concentrated on joining of different materials like steel to steel or aluminium alloy to aluminium alloy by resistance spot welding. In this work, an experimental study on the resistance spot weldability of aluminium alloy (Al 6063 and austenitic stainless steel (AISI304 sheets, which are lap joined by using a pedestal type resistance spot welding machine. Welding was conducted using a 45-deg truncated cone copper electrode with 10-mm face diameter. The weld nugget diameter, force estimation under lap shear test and T – peel test were investigated using digital type tensometer attached with capacitive displacement transducer (Mikrotech, Bangalore, Model: METM2000ER1. The results shows that joining of Al 6063 and AISI 304 thin sheets by RSW method are feasible for automotive structural joints where the loads are below 1000N act on them, it is observed that by increasing the spots per unit length, then the joint with standing strength to oppose failure is also increased linearly incase of

    A new [Ti/TiAlN/TiAlCN]5 multilayer coatings were deposited onto polished substrate AISI H11 (DIN 1.2343) steel by an industrial magnetron sputtering device. The tribological performance of the coated system was investigated by a ball-on-disk tribometer against 100Cr6 steel and Al2O3 balls. The friction coefficients and specific wear rates were measured at various normal loads (2, 5, 8, and 10 N) and sliding velocities (0.2, 0.4, and 0.8 m/s) in ambient air and dry conditions. The phase structure, composition, wear tracks morphologies, hardness, and film/substrate adhesion of the coatings were characterized by light-microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD), 3D-surface analyzer, nanoindentation, and scratch tests. Results showed that the deposited coatings showed low wear rates in the scale of 10-15 m3/N m, low friction coefficients against 100Cr6 and Al2O3 balls in the range of 0.25-0.37, and good hardness in the range of 17-20 GPa. Results also revealed that the friction coefficients and disc wear rates decrease and increase, respectively with the increase in normal load and sliding velocity for both coating/Al2O3 and coating/100Cr6 sliding system. Compared with the uncoated-H11 substrate, the deposited coating exhibited superior tribological and mechanical properties. The dominant wear mechanism was abrasive wear for coating/Al2O3 pair, while for coating/100Cr6 pair, a combination of mild adhesive wear, severe adhesive wear, and abrasive wear (extensive plowing) were the dominant wear mechanisms at different applied normal loads.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Amorphous alumina coatings of different thickness have been deposited on AISI 304 stainless steel substrates by MOCVD in a hot wall reactor at 380 deg. C under O2/H2O atmosphere. The used aluminium precursor was the high volatile and easy to prepare dimethyl-aluminum-isopropoxide. Selected films were annealed in N2 and O2 atmosphere at 500 and 700 deg. C to evaluate the effects of the thermal treatments on the morphology and on the nano-mechanical properties of the coatings. X-ray diffraction and Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy measurements indicated that both the as grown and annealed films were amorphous and very pure with the correct Al2O3 stoichiometry. The surface morphology, investigated by atomic force microscopy, was free of cracks with a roughness of the films that increases with deposition time and with annealing in oxygen atmosphere. The hardness and the elastic modulus of the films and of the AISI 304 stainless steel substrate were measured by load-depth nano-indentation tests. The results highlighted a significant increase in the Berkovich hardness of the coated samples compared to that of the bulk AISI 304 stainless steel

    The α-Al{sub 9}FeMnSi and α-Al{sub 9}FeMn{sub 2}Si intermetallics formed by reactive sintering of Al, Si, Mn, Fe, Cr and Ni powders have been used in AISI 304L steels to enhance microhardness. Processing variables of the reactive sintering treatment were temperature (600, 650, 700, 750 and 800 degree centigrade), pressure (5, 10 y 20 MPa) and holding time (3600, 5400 y 7200 seconds). Experimental results show that temperature is the most important variable affecting the substrate/coating formation, while pressure does not appear to have a significant effect. The results show the optimum conditions of the reactive sintering that favor the substrate/coating formation are 800 degree centigrade, 20 MPa and 7200 seconds. Under these conditions, the reaction zone between the substrate and coating is more compacted and well-adhered, with a microhardness of 1300 Vickers. The results of SEM and X-Ray diffraction confirmed the formation of β-Al{sub 9}FeMnSi and β-Al{sub 9}FeMn{sub 2}Si intermetallics in the substrate/coating interface as well as the presence of Cr and Ni, indicating diffusion of these two elements from the substrate to the interface.

The results of SEM and X-Ray diffraction confirmed the formation of β-Al9FeMnSi and β-Al9FeMn2Si intermetallics in the substrate/coating interface as well as the presence of Cr and Ni, indicating diffusion of these two elements from the substrate to the interface.

  3. Nature in corrosion–erosion surface for [TiN/TiAlN]n nanometric multilayers growth on AISI 1045 steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of this work is to characterize the electrochemical behavior of [TiN/TiAlN]n multilayer coatings under corrosion–erosion condition. The multilayers with bilayer numbers (n) of 2, 6, 12, and 24 and/or bilayer period (Λ) of 1500 nm, 500 nm, 250 nm, 150 nm and 125 nm were deposited by magnetron sputtering technique on Si (100) and AISI 1045 steel substrates. Both, the TiN and the TiAlN structures for multilayer coatings were evaluated via X-ray diffraction analysis. Mechanical and tribological properties were evaluated via nanoindentation measurements and scratch test respectively. Silica particles were used as abrasive material on corrosion–erosion test in 0.5 M of H2SO4 solution at impact angles of 30° and 90° over surface. The electrochemical characterization was carried out using polarization resistance technique (Tafel), in order to observe changes in corrosion rate as a function of the bilayer number (n) or the bilayer period (Λ) and the impact angle. Corrosion rate values of 9115 μm y for uncoated steel substrate and 2615 μm y for substrate coated with n = 24 (Λ = 125 nm) under an impact angle of 30° were found. On the other hand, for an impact angle of 90° the corrosion rate exhibited 16401 μm y for uncoated steel substrate and 5331 μm y for substrate coated with n = 24 (Λ = 125 nm). This behavior was correlated with the curves of mass loss for both coated samples and the surface damage was analyzed via scanning electron microscopy images for the two different impact angles. These results indicate that TiN/TiAlN multilayer coatings deposited on AISI 1045 steel represent a practical solution for applications in corrosive–erosive environments. - Highlights: ► Determination of superficial phenomenon that occurs in surface of multilayer films. ► Innovative multilayer system [TiN/TiAlN]n electrochemical response. ► Improvement of surface mechanical properties and response to surface corrosion attack. ► Nature of [TiN/TiAlN]n films

  6. Long-term corrosion investigation of AISI 316L, Co-28Cr-6Mo, and Ti-6Al-4V alloys in simulated body solutions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The long-term weight loss, ion release and surface composition of AISI 316L, the Co-28Cr-6Mo and Ti-6Al-4V alloys were investigated in phosphate buffered solutions (PBS) with various bovine serum albumin (BSA) concentrations. All the samples lost weight up to 14 weeks and then started to gain weight. This can be explained by precipitation of dissolved ions on the surface after 14 weeks of immersion. The quantities of the dissolved ions were measured in immersed solution for 8, 14 and 22 weeks by induced coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES). The amounts of Fe released from 316L, and Co and Mo released from the Co-28Cr-6Mo alloy decreased after 14 weeks of immersion in PBS and BSA solutions. This observation coincides with the weight change of the samples. The oxide layer composition and concentration of the specimens exposed to solutions for 22 weeks were identified by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis. The XPS results revealed that chromium is the main component of the 316L and Co-28Cr-6Mo alloy. The high Cr concentration of the 316L and Co-Cr-Mo oxide layer corresponds with the slow dissolution rate of Cr compared to other alloying elements of the 316L and Co-28Cr-6Mo alloy.

    Successful continuous laser joining of AISI 316L stainless steel with Ti6Al4V titanium alloy through pure vanadium interlayer has been performed. Three welding configurations were tested: one-pass welding involving all three materials and two pass and double spot welding involving creation of two melted zones separated by remaining solid vanadium. For the most relevant welds, the investigation of microstructure, phase content and mechanical properties has been carried out. In case of formation of a single melted zone, the insertion of steel elements into V-based solid solution embrittles the weld. In case of creation of two separated melted zones, the mechanical resistance of the junction is determined by annealing of remaining vanadium interlayer, which can be witnessed by observing the increase of grain size and decrease of UTS. The two pass configuration allows attain highest mechanical resistance: 367 MPa or 92% of UTS of annealed vanadium. Double spot configuration produces excessive heat supply to vanadium interlayer, which results in important decrease of tensile strength down to 72% of UTS of annealed vanadium. It was found that undesirable σ phase which forms between Fe and V is not created during the laser welding process because of high cooling rates. However, the zones whose composition corresponds to σ homogeneity range are crack-susceptible, so the best choice is to reduce the V content in steel/vanadium melted zone below σ phase formation limit. In the same time, the proportion between V and Ti in Ti6Al4V/vanadium melted zones does not influence mechanical properties as these elements form ideal solid solution.

    Full Text Available Laminated composite materials containing five layers of ultrahigh carbon steel, 1.35%C, and five layers of a Cr-Mo steel were processed by roll bonding. The rolling procedure improves the bonding of layers and refines the microstructure, diminishing grain size and removing the pearlitic zones. Charpy impact tests were carried out to evaluate the impact properties. Toughness of the laminated composite was highly improved respect to the ultrahigh carbon steel. Moreover, it was double than that of the Cr-Mo steel in the arrester orientation. These results reveal the important role of the interfaces in the mechanical properties of the composite materials.

    Se procesaron mediante unión por laminación, dos materiales compuestos laminados de 10 capas: cinco capas de un acero de ultraalto contenido en carbono con 1,35 % C, alternadas con otras cinco de un acero al cromo y molibdeno. La laminación en caliente consolida la unión entre las capas y afina la microestructura, reduciendo el tamaño de grano y eliminando las zonas de perlita presentes inicialmente. Se realizaron ensayos de impacto Charpy para evaluar su resistencia al impacto. El material compuesto laminado mejoró sustancialmente la tenacidad del acero de ultraalto carbono, además de duplicar la resiliencia del acero al cromo y molibdeno en la orientación "en serie". Estos resultados ponen de manifiesto la importancia de las intercaras en las propiedades mecánicas de los materiales compuestos.

  11. Enhancement of mechanical and tribological properties in AISI D3 steel substrates by using a non-isostructural CrN/AlN multilayer coating

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Enhancement of mechanical and tribological properties on AISI D3 steel surfaces coated with CrN/AlN multilayer systems deposited in various bilayer periods (Λ) via magnetron sputtering has been studied in this work exhaustively. The coatings were characterized in terms of structural, chemical, morphological, mechanical and tribological properties by X-ray diffraction (XRD), electron dispersive spectrograph, atomic force microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, nanoindentation, pin-on-disc and scratch tests. The failure mode mechanisms were observed via optical microscopy. Results from X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that the crystal structure of CrN/AlN multilayer coatings has a NaCl-type lattice structure and hexagonal structure (wurtzite-type) for CrN and AlN, respectively, i.e., made was non-isostructural multilayers. An enhancement of both hardness and elastic modulus up to 28 GPa and 280 GPa, respectively, was observed as the bilayer periods (Λ) in the coatings were decreased. The sample with a bilayer period (Λ) of 60 nm and bilayer number n = 50 showed the lowest friction coefficient (∼0.18) and the highest critical load (43 N), corresponding to 2.2 and 1.6 times better than those values for the coating deposited with n = 1, respectively. The best behavior was obtained when the bilayer period (Λ) is 60 nm (n = 50), giving the highest hardness 28 GPa and elastic modulus of 280 GPa, the lowest friction coefficient (∼0.18) and the highest critical load of 43 N. These results indicate an enhancement of mechanical, tribological and adhesion properties, comparing to the CrN/AlN multilayer systems with 1 bilayer at 28%, 21%, 40%, and 30%, respectively. This enhancement in hardness and toughness for multilayer coatings could be attributed to the different mechanisms for layer formation with nanometric thickness such as the Hall-Petch effect and the number of interfaces that act as obstacles for the crack deflection and dissipation of

    Full Text Available The hot deformation behaviour of three AISI 304 (H, L and HP austenitic stainless steel with different carbon contents has been studied. An analysis of the parameters describing their hot flow curves was carried out. No heavy effect of the carbon content was found on most of the latter parameters. However, the work hardening and dynamic recovery behaviour showed clear differences depending on the given alloy, especially at high temperatures and low strain rates where the high carbon steel displayed larger work hardening and dynamic recovery rates than the other steels. The high purity steel (interstitial free displayed the lower stress levels as its hardening rate was slower than in the other two steels.

No se notó un fuerte efecto del carbono en dichos parámetros, excepto en los que describen los procesos de endurecimiento y de restauración dinámica que muestran una cierta dependencia con la composición química, especialmente a bajos valores del parámetro de Zener-Hollomon, donde el acero de alto carbono (304H endurece y restaura más rápido que el de bajo carbono (304L, alcanzándose valores de tensión de pico similares en ambos casos. El material de alta pureza (libre de intersticiales toma valores de tensión de pico más bajos que los otros aceros, endureciendo más lentamente y con una velocidad de restauración similar a la del 304H.

For the austenitic AISI 316L stainless steel, low temperature plasma carburizing induced a strong carbon supersaturation in the austenitic lattice and the formation of carbon expanded austenite (γC without any precipitation of carbides. The hardness of the carburized AISI 316L steel reached a maximum of 1000 HV due to ∼13 at% carbon supersaturation and expansion of the FCC lattice. For the duplex stainless steel AISI F51, the austenitic grains transformed to carbon expanded austenite (γC, the ferritic grains transformed to carbon expanded ferrite (αC and M23C6 type carbides precipitated in the nitrided case. Hardness of the carburized case of the F51 duplex steel reached 1600 HV due to the combined effects of austenite and ferrite lattice expansion with a fine and dispersed precipitation of M23C6 carbides.O aço inoxidável austenítico AISI 316L e o aço inoxidável duplex AISI F51 (EN 1.4462 foram cementados sob plasma-DC na temperatura de 480ºC, utilizando-se CH4 como gás de arraste.

    Full Text Available The mechanical and structural behaviour of two stainless steels reinforcements, with grades austenitic EN 1.4301 (AISI 304 and duplex EN 1.4362 (AISI 2304 have been studied, and compared with the conventional carbon steel B500SD rebar. The study was conducted at three levels: at rebar level, at section level and at structural element level. The different mechanical properties of stainless steel directly influence the behaviour at section level and structural element level. The study of the corrosion behaviour of the two stainless steels has been performed by electrochemical measurements, monitoring the corrosion potential and the lineal polarization resistance (LPR, of reinforcements embedded in ordinary Portland cement (OPC mortar specimens contaminated with different amount of chloride over one year time exposure. Both stainless steels specimens embedded in OPC mortar remain in the passive state for all the chloride concentration range studied after one year exposure.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se presenta un análisis experimental y numérico para la descripción del comportamiento mecánico de un alambre de acero al carbono durante un proceso industrial de trefilado húmedo. En primer lugar, se hizo una campaña experimental de mediciones de fuerza de trefilado de las doce reducciones presentes en el proceso. En segundo lugar, se llevaron a cabo ensayos de tracción con objeto de caracterizar el comportamiento mecánico del material en cada etapa de reducción. En estos ensayos se obtuvieron curvas de tensión-deformación que, en conjunto a las respuestas calculadas a partir de la simulación de los ensayos, permitieron derivar la evolución de los parámetros elásticos y plásticos característicos del material a medida que se reduce su diámetro. De dicha evolución se constató el gran endurecimiento que experimenta el material durante el proceso el que, a su vez, condiciona fuertemente su trefilabilidad. Las simulaciones se realizaron por medio de un modelo elastoplástico de grandes deformaciones implementado en un programa de cálculo preexistente, basado en el método de elementos finitos, denominado VULCAN. Luego, los parámetros del material obtenidos en los ensayos de tracción fueron considerados en la simulación del proceso de deformación que ocurre durante el paso del alambre a través de los dados. Los resultados de la simulación se consideran aceptables y representativos del comportamiento del alambre en el proceso.This paper presents an experimental and numerical analysis for the description of the mechanical behaviour of a carbon steel wire during an industrial process of damp drawing.

    In the present study, research concerning Zn-Al-Cu coatings on low carbon steels has been conducted in order to characterize different properties obtained by a hot-dip coated process. The results include preparation procedure as well as the processing parameters of the coatings. The obtained coatings were subjected to a cold rolling process followed by an anneal heat treatment at different temperatures and under different time conditions. The structural characteristics of coatings have been investigated by optical and electron microscopy. The mechanical properties were obtained by using micro-hardness testing, deep drawing and wear tests whereas chemical analyses were carried out using the SEM/EDAX microprobe. The corrosion properties were achieved by using a salt spray fog chamber and potentiodynamic tests in a saline solution. The coatings are resistant to corrosion and wear in the presence of sodium chloride, therefore, the coatings could be an attractive alternative for application in coastal areas, and adequate wear adhesive resistance.

    Full Text Available Stainless steel (SS is used for many commercial and industrial applications owing to its high resistance to corrosion. It is too hard to machine due to its high strength and high work hardening property. A surface property such as surface roughness (SR is critical to the function-ability of machined components. SS is generally regarded as more difficult to machine material and poor SR is obtained during machining. In this paper an attempt has been made to investigate the SR produced by CNC turning on austenitic stainless steel (AISI316 and martensitic stainless steel (AISI410 by different cases of coated cutting tool used at dry conditions. Multilayered coated with TiCN/Al2O3, multilayered coated with Ti(C, N, B and single layered coated with TiAlN coated cutting tools are used. Experiments were carried out by using Taguchi’s L27 orthogonal array. The effect of cutting parameters on SR is evaluated and optimum cutting conditions for minimizing the SR are determined. Analysis of variance (ANOVA is used for identifying the significant parameters affecting the responses. Confirmation experiments are conducted to validate the results obtained from optimization.

    Full Text Available La materia orgánica en el suelo es un componente clave en la reserva y ciclo del carbono. En condiciones naturales el carbono se incorpora al suelo a través del aporte continuo de material orgánico; sin embargo, existen prácticas de uso de la tierra que generan una disminución del carbono orgánico en el tiempo, a la vez hay prácticas de uso sostenible que favorecen su captura y acumulación. La determinación de fracciones lábiles de carbono orgánico del suelo, constituye una práctica frecuente para evaluar cambios en la calidad de la materia orgánica bajo distintos manejos. Se comparó el contenido de carbono lábil (COS L en la capa 0-20 cm de un suelo Ferralítico Rojo Típico con el de un Ferrítico Rojo Oscuro Típico, sometidos a tres usos del suelo (sin explotación, cultivo diversificado y cultivo intensivo. La extracción del COS L se realizó por oxidación con permanganato de potasio a 0,02 mg L -1 y las determinaciones se hicieron colorimétricamente. Se encontró que independientemente del uso, el contenido de COS L fue superior en el suelo Ferralítico que en el Ferrítico y que para ambos suelos los contenidos disminuyeron en las áreas bajo cultivo intensivo con relación a las áreas sin explotación; además, en el sistema diversificado, donde se aplican principios de Manejo Sostenible de Tierras, este indicador tiende a recuperarse. Estos resultados sugieren la inclusión de la determinación del COS L , como indicador de alerta del efecto de los usos del suelo sobre su calidad

    2016-02-01

    AISI 4130 steel was dipped into a molten aluminum bath at 700°C for 16 s to produce an aluminide coating on the steel substrate. The coating, which consisted of an Al-rich layer and an FeAl3 and Fe2Al5 intermetallic layer, strongly adhered to the steel substrate. High-temperature oxidation of the bare steel and aluminized steel was performed by thermogravimetry at 850°C for 49 h in static air. The oxidation products were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive spectroscopy. The aluminide coating could increase the oxidation resistance of the bare steel by a factor of ˜19. The increase in high-temperature oxidation resistance of the aluminized steel is attributed to the formation of protective alumina scale (α-Al2O3). Although iron oxide nodules grew on the aluminide coating surface, the oxidation rate of the aluminide coatings was very low. After 49 h of oxidation, agglomerates of α-Al2O3 fine grains grew on the rod-shaped FeAl phases.

  6. Characterization of AISI 4140 borided steels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present study characterizes the surface of AISI 4140 steels exposed to the paste-boriding process. The formation of Fe2B hard coatings was obtained in the temperature range 1123-1273 K with different exposure times, using a 4 mm thick layer of boron carbide paste over the material surface. First, the growth kinetics of boride layers at the surface of AISI 4140 steels was evaluated. Second, the presence and distribution of alloying elements on the Fe2B phase was measured using the Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry (GDOES) technique. Further, thermal residual stresses produced on the borided phase were evaluated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The fracture toughness of the iron boride layer of the AISI 4140 borided steels was estimated using a Vickers microindentation induced-fracture testing at a constant distance of 25 μm from the surface. The force criterion of fracture toughness was determined from the extent of brittle cracks, both parallel and perpendicular to the surface, originating at the tips of an indenter impression. The fracture toughness values obtained by the Palmqvist crack model are expressed in the form KC(π/2) > KC > KC(0) for the different applied loads and experimental parameters of the boriding process.

Topological and structural studies of the modified surfaces were conducted using scanning electron microscope (SEM) equipped by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscope (EDS), and X-ray diffractometer (XRD). The electrochemical measurements showed that the highest corrosion and polarization (R{sub p}) resistances were obtained in PN–Al specimens, having single phase superficial layer of AlN. Pitting mechanism was dominant reason of lower corrosion resistance in the Al–PN specimens.

    Full Text Available Uno de los gases contaminantes con mayor distribución y concentración en Toluca y su área metropolitana es el monóxido de carbono que, al igual que el dióxido de azufre y el dióxido de carbono, es generado principalmente por la combustión automotriz y, en segundo lugar por el sector industrial. Sin embargo, debido a la activa dinámica de los vientos en la mayor parte del año, estos gases tienden a dispersarse en todo el valle; solamente durante el invierno la concentración y la distribución del monóxido de carbono se encuentran por encima de las normas establecidas en la legislación vigente. Por eso se considera la calidad del aire como satisfactoria, aunque por su combinación con las bajas temperaturas del periodo invernal y la baja humedad del aire, tiende a representar riesgos para la salud humana.

    Full Text Available Hoy en día y frecuentemente estamos viviendo el incremento de los desastres naturales en nuestro planeta y además sabemos que esto se debe al fenómeno llamado calentamiento global. Si este fenómeno continúa en aumento, muy pronto se tendrá un resultado devastador en el clima de la Tierra, aún para un aumento global de tan solo 2 ºC en un tiempo corto. El dióxido de carbono (CO2 es un importante contaminante cuya concentración aumenta y contribuye notablemente a tal sistema anómalo. Pero, un aumento en la temperatura del aire incrementará también la cantidad de vapor de agua en la atmósfera, añadiendo con esto más "fuego" al fenómeno señalado.

  14. Corrosion of AISI 316 and AISI 304 stainless steel with iodine vapor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The weight loss of stainless steel in corrosion with iodine vapor was studied at 500 to 10000C and an iodine vapor pressure range of 0.05 to 0.5 mm Hg, using a thermobalance. In the initial stage of corrosion, the weight loss rate is largely influenced by solution treatment or surface treatment; the induction period, observed for solution-treated samples, is shortened or eliminated by fission-fragment irradiation, ion-bombardment or mechanical polishing, and in some cases corrosion is even accelerated by the surface treatments. A constant weight loss region follows the initial stage of corrosion. In this region, the weight loss rate is not dependent on treatment to the samples, and has a linear relationship with the vapor pressure of iodine. The rate is the largest at about 800 and 7500C for AISI 316 s. s. and AISI 304 s. s. The rates in general are larger for AISI 304 s. s. than for AISI 316 s. s. below 7000C but almost the same above 8000C. Corrosion product layer is observed on the surface of the sample below 7000C. Based on these findings, the corrosion process is discussed. The deposition of corrosion product in a temperature gradient tube is also described

    Full Text Available RESUMOA emissão de dióxido de carbono é, atualmente, a principal causa do aquecimento global, devido ao efeito estufa. Ao redor do planeta pesquisadores têm-se esforçado na busca de soluções viáveis para o problema; com isto, o biocarvão está entre as mais recentes propostas de mitigação das mudanças climáticas em razão da sua simplicidade e eficiência. Desta forma, este trabalho teve, por objetivo, maximizar o teor de carbono fixo na produção de biocarvão. Para isso, analisaram-se sete tratamentos, temperaturas de pirólise: 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450 e 500 °C. A partir do rendimento gravimétrico de produção e do teor de carbono fixo calcularam-se os respectivos fatores de rendimento gravimétrico para cada tratamento, os quais indicam em qual temperatura se tem a maior quantidade de carbono fixo em função do biocarvão produzido. A pirólise com temperatura máxima de 300 °C indicou o maior fator de rendimento gravimétrico, atingindo 0,22672 C/biocarvão.

  16. Ultrasonic evaluation of friction stud welded AA 6063/AISI 1030 steel joints

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: • Friction stud welding of AA 6063 and AISI 1030 was done successfully. • Ultrasonic evaluation of interfacial properties. • EDX analysis confirms intermetallic compound (FeAl) in the interfacial region. - Abstract: Friction stud welding is a promising technique in many applications related to oil and gas industries. It is used to attach grating to offshore oil platforms in areas where arc welding is not permitted because of the risk of causing a fire or explosion. Attachment of anodes inside seawater discharge pipelines in a gas processing plant is performed by this process. This solid state joining process permits metal combinations such as welding of aluminum studs to steel which would be problematic with arc welding because of the formation of thick and brittle inter-metallic compounds. In the present work, AA 6063 is joined to AISI 1030 steel using friction stud welding machine. Properties that are of interest to manufacturing applications such as Young’s modulus, longitudinal velocity, bulk modulus and shear modulus are evaluated by means of an ultrasonic flaw detector. At the interface of the joint, there is an increase of 4.4%, 1.8%, 1.15% and 4.42% is observed for the properties Young’s modulus, longitudinal velocity, bulk modulus and shear modulus respectively. This is due to the formation of intermetallic compound and increase in hardness at the interfacial region. Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis confirms the presence of FeAl as the intermetallic compound. Scanning Electron Microscope evaluation shows the presence of an unbound zone at the center of the inner region which is due to the minimum rotational speed and low axial load experienced at that point. In the unbound zone, there is an incomplete bond between dissimilar metals and it is detrimental to joint strength. Optimum value of friction time and usage of pure aluminum interlayer during the friction stud welding process hinders the formation of unbound zone and enhances the

    In spite of the operational experience related with the presence of the phenomenon of microbiological corrosion (MIC) in industrial components, it was not but until the decade of the 80 s when the nuclear industry recognized its influence in some systems of Nuclear Generating Power plants. At the moment, diverse studies that have tried to explain the generation mechanism of this phenomenon exist; however, they are even important queries that to solve, especially those related with the particularities of the affected metallic substrates. Presently work, the electrochemical behavior of samples of stainless steel AISI 304L sensitized is evaluated and the carbon steel APIX65, before the action of sulfate reducing microorganisms low the same experimental conditions; found that for the APIX65 the presence of this type of bacteria promoted the formation of a stable biofilm that allowed the maintenance of the microorganisms that damaged the material in isolated places where stings were generated; while in the AISI 304L, it was not detected damage associated to the inoculated media. The techniques of Resistance to the Polarization and Tafel Extrapolation, allowed the calculation of the speed of uniform corrosion, parameter that doesn't seem to be influenced by the presence of the microorganisms; while that noise electrochemical it distinguished in real time, the effect of the sulfate reducing in the steel APIX65.

    The main focus of this work was to produce a new luminescent crystal, the LaAlO{sub 3} doped with different concentrations of carbon, to investigate their thermoluminescent properties for application in gamma dosimetry. The polycrystal LaAlO{sub 3} was synthesized by the method of solid state reaction by mixing aluminum oxide and lanthanum oxide in the proportion 1:1 mol, calcined at 1600 deg C for two hours in air and sintered at 1770 deg C for two hours in a reducing atmosphere in the presence of graphite. Carbon was incorporated to mechanically lanthanum aluminate. The powder was characterized by XRD, confirming the attainment of the desired phase (LaAlO{sub 3}). Among the doping levels investigated, the LaAlO{sub 3} pure and doped with 0.1 and 0.5% carbon were those that produced the best TL response to gamma radiation in the range 1-10 mGy. We believe that this new material has great potential to be characterized as a dosimeter. (author)

    Full Text Available Chloroform fumigation-incubation and chloroform fumigation-extraction approaches have significantly contributed to assess soil microbial biomass. Some controversy is found in the literature about the suggestion to calculate microbial biomass carbon (MBC without the subtraction of the un-fumigated control, in opposition to the originally proposed method that requires such subtraction. Some authors consider the non-subtraction proceeding as a more robust method. Nevertheless, values obtained without subtraction of a control include other labile organic fractions of soil carbon besides microbial biomass. Therefore, due to the usefulness of this measurement we consider more appropriate to call it as chloroform-fumigation labile C pool or microbial biomass carbon "plus" (MBC PLUS. We used a vast series of data from soils of Argentina and Brazil under different management situations to verify whether MBC correlates to MBC PLUS. There was a significant statistical correlation between values of MBC obtained by fumigation-extraction method and the corresponding MBC PLUS. The MBC PLUS performed as well as MBC as an indicator to differentiate soil managements and their impact on soil quality.Los métodos de fumigación-incubación y fumigación extracción han contribuido significativamente a las determinaciones de biomasa microbiana del suelo. En la literatura se encuentran algunas controversias acerca de la sugerencia de calcular el carbono de biomasa microbiana (CBM sin la sustracción del control no fumigado, en oposición a las metodologías tradicionales que requieren de dicha sustracción. Algunos autores mencionan que el hecho de no realizar la sustracción hace al procedimiento más robusto. Sin embargo, los valores obtenidos sin la sustracción del control incluyen otras fracciones lábiles del carbono, además de la biomasa microbiana. Debido a lo útil que resulta esta medida consideramos adecuado llamarla "pool" de carbono lábil por fumigaci

    Full Text Available The carbon dioxide reforming of methane was carried out over nickel catalysts supported on the gamma-Al2O3/CeO2 system prepared by wet impregnation. With the increase of the CeO2 weight in the catalyst, a higher stability was observed in the catalytic activity, together with an excellent resistance to carbon deposition and a better Ni dispersion. The catalysts were characterized by means of surface area measurements, TPR, H2 chemisorption, XRD, SEM, EDX, XPS and TEM. An interaction between Ni and CeO2 was observed to the Ni/CeO2 sample after activation in a H2 atmosphere above 300 ºC. Such behavior has a significantly influence on the catalytic activity.

  9. Casting AISI 316 steel by gel cast

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The feasibility of producing AISI 316 steel components from their powders and avoiding their compaction is analyzed. A casting technique is tested that is similar to gel casting, used for ceramic materials. In the initial stage, the process consists of the formulation of a concentrated barbotine of powdered metal in a solution of water soluble organic monomers, which is cast in a mold and polymerized in situ to form a raw piece in the shape of the cavity. The process can be performed under controlled conditions using barbotines with a high monomer content from the acrylimide family. Then, the molded piece is slowly heated until the polymer is eliminated, and it is sintered at temperatures of 1160oC to 1300oC under a dry hydrogen atmosphere, until the desired densities are attained. The density and micro structure of the materials obtained are compared with those for the materials compacted and synthesized by the conventional processes. The preliminary results show the feasibility of the process for the production of certain kinds of structural components (CW)

    Materials difficult to weld by fusion welding processes can be successfully welded by friction welding. The strength of the friction welded joints is extremely affected by process parameters (rotation speed, friction time, friction pressure, forging time, and forging pressure). In this study, statistical values of tensile strength were investigated in terms of rotation speed, friction time, and friction pressure on the strength behaviours of friction welded AISI 1040 and AISI 304L alloys. Then, the tensile test results were analyzed by analysis of variance (ANOVA) with a confidence level of 95 % to find out whether a statistically significant difference occurs. As a result of this study, the maximum tensile strength is very close, which that of AISI 1040 parent metal of 637 MPa to could be obtained for the joints fabricated under the welding conditions of rotation speed of 1700 rpm, friction pressure of 50 MPa, forging pressure of 100 MPa, friction time of 4 s, and forging time of 2 s. Rotation speed, friction time, and friction pressure on the friction welding of AISI 1040 and AISI 304L alloys were statistically significant regarding tensile strength test values. (orig.)

    Full Text Available The present work is based on a comparative study of the borage seed's oil obtained with supercritical carbon dioxide by means of the conventional extraction using hexane as a solvent. In the optimal working conditions, the results obtained in the extraction with carbon dioxide are comparable to those obtained in the extraction with hexane, although the oil's quality is higher. Therefore, the process of supercritical extraction with carbon dioxide could be more effective than conventional extraction because the solvent removal is not necessary and several steps of the oil refining process can be reduced notably.

    En el presente trabajo se realiza un estudio comparativo de la calidad del aceite de semilla de borraja obtenido con dióxido de carbono supercrítico y mediante extracción convencional empleando hexano como disolvente. La calidad del aceite extraído con dióxido de carbono es superior. En las condiciones óptimas de operación, los rendimientos encontrados en la extracción con dióxido de carbono, son comparables a los obtenidos en la extracción con hexano, si bien la calidad del aceite es superior. Por tanto, el proceso de Extracción Supercrítica con dióxido de carbono, al eliminar la etapa de recuperación del disolvente y simplificar sensiblemente el proceso de refinado del aceite, se presenta como una alternativa competitiva con la extracción convencional.

  17. Comparative electrochemical study of 08H18N10T, AISI 304 and AISI 316L stainless steels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of this work was to determine the main characteristics of the passivation and surface oxidation of 08H18N10T, AISI304 and AISI316L stainless steels, which serve as structural materials of VVER and PWR nuclear reactors. With the help of electrochemical experiments these materials were ranked according to their resistance against uniform corrosion. The measurements were done as a function of temperature in the range between room temperature and 80 deg. C. A sample of 08H18N10T steel was irradiated in the Budapest research reactor. With cyclic voltammetry we found that AISI 304 exhibits a very large passivation peak as a classical example for passivation. The peak is much smaller for AISI 316L and it is very small for 08H18N10T. This implies that the native oxide layer on AISI 316L and 08H18N10T is more protective than on AISI 304. The 08H18N10T steel has the best protective passive oxide layer which forms already in air and it is very difficult to remove it even at negative potentials. By comparing impedance spectra of the various stainless steels results lead to the same conclusions we obtained from cyclic voltammetry. Our experimental results of the irradiated steel are in accord with the fact that neutron irradiation increases the number of defect sites within the oxide layer. We found that irradiation has no considerable effect on the active-to-passive transition process. The small variations in the alloy composition do not alter the transition process significantly, as well

The 08H18N10T steel has the best protective passive oxide layer which forms already in air and it is very difficult to remove it even at negative potentials. By comparing impedance spectra of the various stainless steels results lead to the same conclusions we obtained from cyclic voltammetry. Our experimental results of the irradiated steel are in accord with the fact that neutron irradiation increases the number of defect sites within the oxide layer. We found that irradiation has no considerable effect on the active-to-passive transition process. The small variations in the alloy composition do not alter the transition process significantly, as well.

  20. Investigation of residual stress in laser welding between carbon steel AISI 1010 and stainless AISI 304

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The dissimilar materials union has the residual stress formation as one of the most critical problems, which occurs mainly because these materials have both different thermal expansion coefficients and thermal conductivities. In this study, it was investigated the laser welding technique between steels, AISI 1010 and AISI 304. The materials were joined by butt autogenous welding with a continuous Nd:YAG laser. The main objective was to identify the welding parameters influence by the residual stresses analysis in the heat affected zone (HAZ). It was executed a factorial design with three-factor at two levels with a replica, which were varied power, welding speed and focal position of the laser beam. Residual stress measurements by the diffraction of X-rays were performed on the sample surface, to study their variation as a function of the parameters investigated. The blind hole method was also used to evaluate the residual stress along the samples depth, up to depth of 1mm. Besides residual stress measurement, weld seams were evaluated by optical and scanned electron microscopy, which were aimed to determine the weld geometry and changes in the microstructure. It was also made Vickers hardness measurements to evaluate the extent of HAZ. To evaluate the mechanical properties of the union were performed tensile and fatigue test. The MINITAB 15 software was used to analyze the residual stresses obtained by the blind hole method at different depths of the HAZ. It was also used statistical regression based on both the influences different and the combination of this input factors, in the residual stress of union. The results indicate that the models can satisfactorily predict the responses and provide users a guide to better define the welding parameters. (author)

The strength and hardness were tested on the welded area. The result showed finer grains. in the welded area. This is the result of friction pressure and upset pressure in the welding process. In addition, the observation result indicated some changes of Ferrite and Pearlite in welded zone. This phase change resulted in the increment of hardness in AISI 4140 at the contact area and adjacent. In part of AISI 1040, the portion of Pearlite and Ferrite are not significantly changed, therefore the value of hardness is almost constant.

    Full Text Available Mechanical and tribological properties os AISI 304 and AISI 316 stainless steels submited to glow discharge ion nitriding are reported.The atmosphere was 20:80 - N2:H2 with substrate temperatures ranging from 300 to 500 °C. Treatment at 300 °C produced expanded austenite (γN in both steels. Increasing the temperature, the phases γ´-Fe4N and - Fe2+xN were present and the latter is the major phase for AISI 304. At 500 °C, the CrN phase was also identified in both steels. Hardnesses of about 13-14 GPa at near surface regions were obtained in both steels. Moreover, AISI 316 nitrided at 500 °C has the deepest hard layer. Tribological tests showed that wear can be reduced by up to a factor of six after the nitriding processes, even for a working temperature of 300 °C. The profiles during and after nanoscratch tests did not reveal significant differences after nitriding processes in both steels.

El Panel Intergubernamental de Cambio Climático (IPCC, en su cuarto informe de evaluación presentado el 2007, y la Organización Mundial de Meteorología (OMM han establecido que desde el 2001 la temperatura media global en el planeta registra el nivel de aumento más alto de nuestra historia. A este ritmo, y por lo difícil que resulta encontrar una solución aun en el mediano plazo, todo indica que el 2013 no será la excepción. Las causas del cambio climático son atribuidas a factores naturales pero también antropogénicos; existe ya consenso respecto a la influencia de los gases de efecto invernadero (GEI, sobre todo el dióxido de carbono (CO2 en este proceso acelerado de calentamiento del planeta. Esta crisis del clima, como una forma de ser enfrentada, hoy está obligando a los países a promover proyectos que reduzcan las emisiones de GEI y permitan el almacenamiento de carbono. Uno de los mecanismos internacionales establecidos para concretar este objetivo son los bonos de carbono, iniciativa dispuesta por el Protocolo de Kioto, acuerdo jurídicamente vinculante firmado en 1997 y en vigor desde el 2005. Expiró el año pasado, pero la histórica Conferencia de Doha, Catar, decidió en diciembre último prorrogar la vigencia del tratado hasta el 2020. El protocolo, en su primera fase, exige a las grandes potencias reducir durante el período 2008-2012 la emisión de gases en un 5,2% por debajo del nivel de 1990. Lo interesante es que las empresas de tales potencias, para cumplir esta obligación, pueden hacerlo en cualquier lugar o comprar bonos de carbono de países que superen las metas exigidas. La emisión de estos bonos es, después de todo, una iniciativa de descontaminación, que permite que los países industrializados sigan con sus prácticas contaminantes, en tanto

Thereafter, the effect of axial pressures on the mechanical properties of friction welded AISI 304 with AISI 1021 steels, produced by mechanical joining, have been investigated. Samples were welded under different axial pressures ranging from 75 to 135 MPa, at constant speed of 1250 rpm. The tensile strength, impact strength, and micro-hardness values of the weldments were determined and evaluated. Simultaneously, the fractrography of the tensile-tested specimens were carried out, so as to understand the failure analysis.

    Friction welding is a solid-state welding method, which can join different materials smoothly and is excessively used in manufacturing industry. Friction welding method is commonly used in welding applications of especially cylindrical components, pipes and materials with different properties, for which other welding methods remain incapable. AISI 304 stainless steel and a copper alloy of 99.6 % purity were used in this study. This couple was welded in the friction welding machine. After the welding process, samples were analyzed macroscopically and microscopically, and their microhardness was measured. Tensile test was used to determine the bond strength of materials that were joined using the friction welding method. At the end of the study, it was observed that AISI 304 stainless steel and copper could be welded smoothly using the friction welding method and the bond strength is close to the tensile strength of copper.

    The Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) technique can evaluate both micro- and macro-residual stresses, and provides indication about the relevance of contribution of these different stress components. MBN measurements were performed in AISI 1070 steel sheet samples, where different strains were applied. The Barkhausen emission is also analyzed when two different sheets, deformed and non-deformed, are evaluated together. This study is useful to understand the effect of a deformed region near the surface on MBN. The low permeability of the deformed region affects MBN, and if the deformed region is below the surface the magnetic Barkhausen signal increases. - Highlights: > Evaluated residual stresses by the magnetic Barkhausen technique. > Indication about the relevance of micro-and macro-stress components. > Magnetic Barkhausen measurements were carried out in AISI 1070 steel sheet samples. > Two different sheets, deformed and non-deformed, are evaluated together. > Magnetic Barkhausen signal increases when deformed region is below the surface.

    Full Text Available Purpose: This study aims to investigate the fatigue life of box borided AISI 1010 steel materials.Design/methodology/approach: Fatigue specimens firstly have been prepared according to ASTM E466-96 standard and normalized. Then their surfaces have been cleaned by polishing. Boriding heat treatment has been applied in solid media with the help of Ekabor2 powder. Specimens have been borided at 1173-1223-1273 and 1323 K temperatures for 2-4 and 6 hours respectively. Fatigue tests have been made in rotating-bend test device. Separate S-N diagram has been formed for each boriding condition and then their results were compared with the results of the specimens on which any heat treatment has not been made.Findings: As a result it has been seen that boriding has no positive effect on fatigue life of AISI 1010 steel materials. And also it has been determined that fatigue life of the materials on which boriding heat treatment applied, decreases in between 14 %-55 %.Research limitations/implications: It can be noted that the reasons of short fatigue life determination are the boride layer’s much higher hardness than the substrate material’s, and the micro cracks existed between boride phases formed onto the surface.Originality/value: The investigations on fatigue life of borided AISI 1010 steel were made.

    Full Text Available In this work the quality of wheat germ oil obtained by extraction with liquid and supercritical carbon dioxide was studied. At the optimum operating conditions, the yield of supercritical extraction is similar to the conventional extraction by organic solvent, but the quality of the wheat germ oil extracted by supercritical carbon dioxide is higher. Furthermore, supercritical extraction could be more economical than organic extraction because the solvent removal by distillation is not necessary and several steps of the following oil refining process can be simplified.

    En el presente trabajo se realiza un estudio de la calidad del aceite de germen de trigo obtenido mediante la extracción con dióxido de carbono a alta presión. En las condiciones operativas óptimas del proceso, el rendimiento de la extracción con dióxido de carbono líquido y supercrítico es similar al de la extracción con disolventes orgánicos, si bien la calidad del aceite obtenido es superior. De ello se desprende el hecho de que el proceso de extracción utilizando dióxido de carbono, en condiciones sub- y supercríticas, puede resultar competitivo con el convencional al simplificar sustancialmente las etapas de refinado del aceite y eliminar la destilación del disolvente, las más costosas desde el punto de vista energético.

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available Atomic Layer Deposition ( ALD is a modern technique that Allows to deposit nanometric, conformal coatings on almost any kind of substrates, from plastics to ceramic, metals or even composites. ALD coatings are not dependent on the morphology of the substrate and are only regulated by the composition of the precursors, the chamber temperature and the number of cycles. In this work, mono- and bi -layer nanometric, protective low-temperature ALD Coatings, based on Al2O3 and TiO2 were applied on AISI 420 Stainless Steel in orderto enhance its relatively low corrosion resistance in chloride containing environments. Tribological testing were also performed on the ALD coated AISI 420 in order to evaluate the wear and scratch resistance of these nanometric layers and thus evaluate their durability. Scratch tests were performed using a standard Rockwell C indenter, under a variable load condition, in order to evaluate the critical loading condition for each coating. Wear testing were performed using a stainless steel counterpart, in ball-on-discconfiguration, in order to measure the friction coefficient and wear to confront the resistance. All scratch tests scars and wear tracks were then observed by means of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM in order to understand the wear mechanisms that occurred on the sample surfaces. Corrosion testing, performed under immersion in 0.2 M NaCl solutions, clearly showed that the ALD coatings have a strong effect in protecting the Stainless Steel Substrate against corrosion, reducing the corrosion current density by two orders of magnitude.Tribological The preliminary results showed that ALD depositions obtained at low Temperatures have a brittle behavior caused by the amorphous nature of their structure, and thus undergo delamination phenomena during Scratch Testing at relatively low applied loads. During ball-on-disc testing, the coatings were removed from the substrate, in particular for monolayer ALD configurations

  11. Dissimilar friction welding of 6061-T6 aluminum and AISI 1018 steel: Properties and microstructural characterization

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Joining of dissimilar materials is of increasing interest for a wide range of industrial applications. The automotive industry, in particular, views dissimilar materials joining as a gateway for the implementation of lightweight materials. Specifically, the introduction of aluminum alloy parts into a steel car body requires the development of reliable, efficient and economic joining processes. Since aluminum and steel demonstrate different physical, mechanical and metallurgical properties, identification of proper welding processes and practices can be problematic. In this work, inertia friction welding has been used to create joints between a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and a AISI 1018 steel using various parameters. The joints were evaluated by mechanical testing and metallurgical analysis. Microstructural analyses were done using metallography, microhardness testing, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray elemental mapping, focused ion beam (FIB) with ultra high resolution SEM and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in TEM and STEM modes. Results of these analysis first suggested that joint strengths on the order of 250 MPa could be achieved. In addition, failures were seen in the plasticized layer on the aluminum side of the joint. Further, bond lines were characterized by a thin layer of formed Al-Fe intermetallic. This intermetallic layer averaged roughly 250 nm thick and compositionally appears related to the FeAl and Fe2Al5 phases.

    Nitrogen-based compounds can potentially be used as alternative non-carbon or low-carbon fuels. Nevertheless, the corrosion of construction materials at high temperatures and pressures in the presence of such fuel has not been reported yet. This work is focused on the corrosion of AISI Al 6061, 1005 carbon steel (CS), 304, 316L, 310 austenitic stainless steels (SS) and 680 nickel alloy in highly concentrated water solution of ammonium nitrate and urea (ANU). The corrosion at 50 C and ambient pressure and at 350 C and 20 bar was investigated to simulate storage and working conditions. Sodium chloride was added to the fuel (0-5 wt%) to simulate industrial fertilizers and accelerated corrosion environment. Heavy corrosion of CS was observed in ANU solution at 50 C, while Al 6061, 304 and 316L SS showed high resistance both to uniform and pitting corrosion in ANU containing 1% of sodium chloride. Addition of 5% sodium chloride caused pitting of Al 6061 but had no influence on the corrosion of SS. Tests in ANU at 350 C and 20 bar showed pitting on SS 304 and 316L and 680 nickel alloy. The highest corrosion resistance was found for SS 310 due to formation of stable oxide film on its surface. (Copyright copyright 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim)

  14. Squeeze Casting Method Of AI-Si Alloy For Piston Material

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The AI-Si alloy is an alloy used as piston material. This alloys could be as AI-Si hypereutectic alloy (Si content more than 12.5 % wt.), as AI-Si eutectic alloy (Si cuntent 12.5 % wt, and as AI-Si hypoeutectic alloy (Si content less than 12.5 % wt.). The synthesize of AI-Si alloy piston generally using the technique of gravity casting in a dies. This method is causing high porousity. By using the squeeze technique, amount ofporousity in AI-Si alloy is possibly reduced and the density of this alloy should be higher. The other factors such as alloying elements of AI-Si alloy (Mg. Cu, Zn) would increase the mechanical properties especially the hardness. The focuses of this research are the microstructure and the maximum hardness during the heat treatment of AI-Si alloy which was added by alloying elments. The result of hardness at test shows the maximum hardness at 94.7 kg/mm2 obtained at aging temperature of 210oC for hours with homogenous dendritic microstructure

  15. Plasma nitriding of AISI 304L and AISI 316L stainless steels: effect of time in the formation of S phase and the chromium nitrides

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Plasma nitriding can improve hardness and wear resistance of austenitic stainless steels without losses in corrosion resistance. This fact relies on a nitrided layer constituted only by S phase, without chromium nitrides precipitation. In this work, the effect of nitriding time on phases formed on nitrided layer was investigated in two austenitic stainless steels: AISI 304L e AISI 316L. The samples were nitrided at 420 deg C, using a mixture of 60 % N2 and 40% H2, during 5, 7 and 9 hours. It was noted that chromium nitrides were formed on samples of AISI 304L, nitrided for 7 e 9 hours, while all nitrided samples of AISI 316L showed only formation of S phase. The nitrided layers were characterized using optical microscope and x-ray diffraction. (author)

    The Microbiologically Induced Corrosion affects several industries, such as oil industry where it is estimated that 20% to 30% pipes failures are related with microorganism. The chemical reactions generate ions transfer, this validate the use of electrochemical technique for its analysis. Coupons submerged in a nutritional medium with presence and absence of three different microorganisms during two periods, 48 hours and 28 days were studied. Polarization resistance (Rp) and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) techniques were applied to determine the corrosively of the systems. The results show a greater corrosive effect of abiotic systems, this indicates a microorganisms protection effect to the metal, opposite to the first hypothesis. This result was ratified observing surface coupons by using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) technique. A possible mechanism based on Evans - Tafel graph is proposed to explain inhibitor microorganism effect.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    The microstructure of AISI 304 austenite stainless steel fabricated by the thin strip casting process were investigated using optical microscope, scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD).The microstructures of the casting strips show a duplex structure consisting of delta ferrite and austenite. The volume fraction of the delta ferrite is about 9.74vol% at the center and 6.77vol% at the surface of the casting thin strip, in vermicular and band shapes. On account of rapid cooling and solidification in the continuous casting process, many kinds of inclusions and precipitates have been found. Most of the inclusions and precipitates are spherical complex compounds consisting of oxides, such as, SiO2, MnO, Al2O3,Cr2O3,and FeO or their multiplicity oxides of MnO·Al2O3,2FeO·SiO2, and 2MnO·SiO2. Many defects including dislocations and stacking faults have also formed during the rapid cooling and solidification process, which is helpful to improve the mechanical properties of the casting strips.

  7. Fiber laser welding of AISI 304 stainless steel plates

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Compared with conventional lasers, fiber laser welding is characterized by high melting efficiency, deferent keyhole modes and power density characteristics, which could affect the heat and melt flow of the molten pool during welding. The objective of the present work was to study the fiber laser weldability of 5 mm thick AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel plates; therefore, bead-on-plate welding was exploited on AISI 304 stainless steel plates with different laser powers, welding speeds, defocused distances with different types of shielding gas and their effects on the weld zone geometry and properties and final solidification microstructure at room temperature. Laser power, welding speed and defocused distance have a great effect on the bead appearance and weld zone shape while almost no significant effect on both the type of microstructure and mechanical properties of welds. The microstructure of all laser welds was always austenitic including about 3-5 % ferrite. However, the lower the laser power and/or the higher the welding speed, the finer solidification structure, primary ferrite or mixed-mode solidification resulted in crack-free welds. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In pile testing of the effect of neutron irradiation on the fatigue life of the reference material AISI 316L was performed in the framework of the European fusion technology program. The overall programme, carried out at SCK CEN (Mol,Belgium), exists of two instrumented rigs for low cycle fatigue testing, which were consecutively loaded in the BR-2 reactor during periods Jan (94) June (94) and Aug (94)-Dec(94). In each experiment, two identical samples were loaded by means of a pneumatically driven system. The samples were instrumented with thermocouples, strain gages, linear variable displacement transducers, and activation monitors. The experimental conditions are given. Type of fatigue test: load controlled, symmetric, uniaxial, triangular wave shape; stress range: about 580 MPa; sample shape: hourglass, diameter 3.2 mm, radius 12.5 mm; environment: NaK (peritectic); temperature: 250 C; maximum dpa value up to fracture: 1.7. Two of four samples were broken (one in each experiment) after having experienced 17 419 respectively 11 870 stress cycles. These new data points confirm earlier results from pile fatigue tests: irradiation causes no degradation of fatigue life of AISI 316L steel, at least for the parameters corresponding to these experiments

    Full Text Available For further increase of economy of production of AISI A2 tool steel a study of possibility of expanding the hot working range and better prediction of flow stress has been carried out. By employing hot compression tests it was proved, that initial microstructures have influence on the lower limit and chemical composition on upper limit of hot working range. A CAE Neural Networks was applied to predict the flow stresses for intermediate values of strain rates and temperatures. For optimization purposes the activation energies and constants of the hyperbolic sine function for two temperatures ranges (850-1000°C and 1000-1150°C were calculated.

  16. CO2 laser welding of AISI 321stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    CO2 laser welding of AISI 321austenitic stainless steel has been carried out. Bead on plate welds on 2 mm thick steel were performed with 450W CO2 laser at speeds ranging from 200 to 900 mm/min. It was observed that weld depth and width was decreased with increasing the speed at constant laser power. Butt welds on different sheet thickness of 1, 2 and 2.5 mm were performed with laser power of 450 W and at speed 750, 275 and 175 mm/min, respectively. The microstructures of the welded joints and the heat affected zones (HAZ) were examined by optical microscopy and SEM. The austenite/delta ferrite microstructure was reported in the welded zone. The microhardness and tensile strength of the welded joints were measured and found almost similar to base metal due to austenitic nature of steel

  17. Radiation-induced phase development in AISI 316

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During irradiation at temperatures between 460 and 6500C, the alloy AISI 316 decomposes into an austenite matrix of altered composition and some mixture of six possible precipitate phases. These phases are γ', G, eta-silicide, M23C6, M6C, and Laves. The balance of phases developed is exceptionally sensitive to a large number of material and environmental variables and frequently varies within a single grain. All of these phases are found to be either naturally rich in nickel and silicon or to become progressively enriched in these elements as the irradiation proceeds. The precipitates can be considered to be classified as thermally stable but modified, irradiation-enhanced, irradiation-induced, and irradiation-transformed

    2016-04-01

    The thermo-viscoplastic behaviors of AISI 4140 steel are investigated over wide ranges of strain rate and deformation temperature by isothermal compression tests. Based on the experimental results, a unified viscoplastic constitutive model is proposed to describe the hot compressive deformation behaviors of the studied steel. In order to reasonably evaluate the work hardening behaviors, a strain hardening material constant (h0) is expressed as a function of deformation temperature and strain rate in the proposed constitutive model. Also, the sensitivity of initial value of internal variable s to the deformation temperature is discussed. Furthermore, it is found that the initial value of internal variable s can be expressed as a linear function of deformation temperature. Comparisons between the measured and predicted results confirm that the proposed constitutive model can give an accurate and precise estimate of the inelastic stress-strain relationships for the studied high-strength steel.

  19. Corrosion of AISI 304 stainless steel in polluted seawater

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The sequence of microbiofouling settlement on AISI 304 stain steel samples exposed to polluted harbor sea water of a power cooling water intake is studied. The firts sates of bacterial colonization are followed by means of scanning electron microscopy during two weeks of exposure. The relation between microbiofouling and corrosion is also followed by scanning electron microscopy and evaluated through electrochemical polarization experiments. The results obtained show that microbial colonization and extracellular polimeric substances forming the biofilms have a marked influence on the electrochemical behaviour of stainless steel in sea water. Laboratory experiments using inorganic chloride solutions or artificial sea water show a considerably lesser attack of the metal than those performed 'in situ' with natural sea water. Passivity breadown is highly facilitated when complex biological and inorganic deposits (fouling) have settled on the metal surface. (Author)

    Zhu, L. N.; Xu, B. S.; Wang, H. D.; Wang, C. B.

    Experimental measurements have been used to investigate the pileup behavior during nanoindentation with a sharp indenter. The AISI 1045 steels treated by quenching and annealing were examined. The results show that during sharp nanoindentation process, the amount of pileup is related to the residual stress state, the indentation depth and the work hardening. The quenched steel with compressive residual stress will tend to pile up, and the stress-free annealed steel can decrease the pileup height. It is found that the pileup height gradually increases for the two steels as the indentation depth becomes larger. It is also shown that the low work hardening of the two steels can also result in the pileup deformation.

  1. Stress Ratio Effect on Ratcheting Behavior of AISI 4340 Steel

    Divya Bharathi, K.; Dutta, K.

    2016-02-01

    Ratcheting is known as accumulation of plastic strain during asymmetric cyclic loading of metallic materials under non-zero mean stress. This phenomenon reduces fatigue life of engineering materials and thus limits the life prediction capacity of Coffin-Manson relationship. This study intends to investigate the ratcheting behavior in AISI 4340 steel which is mainly used for designing of railway wheel sets, axles, shafts, aircraft components and other machinery parts. The effect of stress ratio on the ratcheting behaviour in both annealed and normalised conditions were investigated for investigated steel. Ratcheting tests were done at different stress ratios of -0.4, -0.6 and -0.8. The results showed that the material responds to hardening behavior and nature of strain accumulation is dependent on the magnitude of stress ratio. The post ratcheted samples showed increase in tensile strength and hardness which increases with increasing stress ratio and these variations in tensile properties are correlated with the induced cyclic hardening.

  2. Study of discordancy mobility in the AISI 304 steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Internal Friction (IF), measurements were carried out in a type AISI 304 austenitic stainless steels at approximately 1HZ of frequency in the temperature interval from 120 to 573K. The IF spectra and the vibration frequency were obtained in samples were submitted to specific heat treatments. The results showed IF spectra with a well defined peak at 260K. The intensity dependes on the amount of plastic deformation previously introduced in the sample. Another broad peak was detected between 300 and 400K. Both peaks could only be detected after plastic deformation in uniaxial tension or torsion. In torsionably deformed samples at liquid nitrogen temperature, 77 K, the IF spectrum is observed only after linear annealing at 400K. This apparently results from a high damping due to a possible phase transformation which occurs around room temperature. The broad peak at higher temperature is sensitive to recovery induced by linear annealings. (Author)

  3. Physicochemical and tribological characterization of titanium or titanium plus carbon implanted AISI M2 steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    AISI M2 steel samples were implanted with 110 keV titanium ions at fluences ranging from 5x1016 to 4x1017Ti cm-2. Titanium plus carbon dual implantation was also studied. Titanium distribution profiles were determined using the 48Ti(p,γ)49V resonant nuclear reaction. The incorporation of carbon and oxygen from residual gases was studied as a function of titanium fluence and residual pressure using nuclear backscattering spectrometry at 5.7 and 7.5 MeV He+ ion energies respectively. A competition phenomenon between carbon and oxygen incorporation is pointed out. Analysis of the phases formed was performed using conversion electron Moessbauer spectroscopy. Fe(Ti) solid solution, a-FexTi100-x and superficial a-Fe-Ti-C amorphous phases were identified. Tribological tests involving a ball (Al2O3 or 52100) and disc contact were performed to characterize the friction behaviour of the implanted surface. It is shown that titanium plus carbon implantation leads to a reduction in the friction coefficient. The wear tracks and debris were examined using scanning electron microscopy and electron microprobe cartography. For the two types of balls a reduction in the wear track width was observed together with oxidation of the wear debris. The tribological improvement observed depends not only on the presence of the superficial a-Fe-Ti-C amorphous layer but also on the surface chemical reaction during the wear process. (orig.)

    This research experimentally investigates the performance of a TiAlN coated carbide drill bit in drilling AISI P20 through two different kinds of lubricants, namely; soluble coconut oil (SCO) and nanoparticle-enhanced coconut oil (NECO) under minimum quantity lubrication system. The tool life and tool wear mechanism were studied using various cutting speeds of 50, 100 and 150 m/min with a constant feed of 0.01 mm/rev. Since the flank wear land was not regular along the cutting edge, the average flank wear (VB) was measured at several points using image analysis software. The drills were inspected using a scanning electron microscope to further elucidate the wear mechanism. The result indicates that drilling with the nanoparticle- enhanced lubricant was better in resisting the wear and improving the drill life to some extent

  5. Solid-particle erosion of tungsten carbide/cobalt cermet vs. hardened AISI 440C stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Solid-particle erosion tests were conducted on hardened AISI 440C stainless steel and a cermet that consisted of ∼90 vol.% submicrometer WC embedded in ∼10 vol.% Co. Angular Al2O3 abrasives were used as the erodent. Experimental variables were: angle of impact = 20, 50, or 90 degrees; erodent velocity = 60 or 120 m/s; erodent nominal diameter = 63 or 143 (micro)m. For all test conditions, the stainless steel eroded faster than the cermet. Analysis of weight-loss data and examination of eroded surfaces by scanning electron microscopy indicated that the erosion mechanisms were similar for the two hard materials. Both exhibited significant plasticity when impacted, but the stainless steel's response to impact appeared to have been more ductile in nature

  8. Linear friction welding of AISI 316L stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Research highlights: → Linear friction welding is a feasible process for joining AISI316L. → Most welds had tensile strengths superior to the parent material. → Welding parameters had a significant impact on weld microstructure. → Control of microstructure by controlling welding parameters is a process benefit. - Abstract: Linear friction welding is a solid state joining process established as a niche technology for the joining of aeroengine bladed disks. However, the process is not limited to this application, and therefore the feasibility of joining a common engineering austenitic steel, AISI 316L, has been explored. It was found that mechanically sound linear friction welds could be produced in 316L, with tensile properties in most welds exceeding those of the parent material. The mechanical properties of the welds were also found to be insensitive to relatively large changes in welding parameters. Texture was investigated in one weld using high energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction. Results showed a strong {1 1 1} type texture at the centre of the weld, which is a typical shear texture in face centre cubic materials. Variations in welding parameters were seen to have a significant impact on the microstructures of welds. This was particularly evident in the variation of the fraction of delta ferrite, in the thermo-mechanically affected zone of the welds, with different process parameters. Analysis of the variation in delta ferrite, with different welding parameters, has produced some interesting insights into heat generation and dissipation during the process. It is hoped that a greater understanding of the process could help to make the parameter optimisation process, when welding 316L as well as other materials, more efficient.

    The evolution of texture in thin sheets of metastable austenitic stainless steel AISI 301 is affected by external conditions such as loading rate and temperature, by inhomogeneous deformation phenomena such as twinning and shear band formation, and by the concurent strain induced phase transformation of the retained austenitc ({gamma}) into martensite ({alpha}). The present paper describes texture measurements on different gauges of AISI 301 prior and after uniaxial stretching under different conditions.

    Full Text Available The preparation of carbon nitride thin films by ablation of different target compounds (graphite, guanazole in a reactive atmosphere of ammonia with an ArF excimer laser (193 nm is reported. The films were deposited on different substrates (silicon wafers and aluminium plates and were analysed with different techniques such as profilometry, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX. For both targets, a comparative study of the influence of the ammonia total pressure on the growth rate, composition and properties of the obtained material has been done. A gradual nitrogen incorporation in the films with increasing ammonia pressure and also the presence of nitrogen bonded to carbon in different configurations (simple, double and/or triple bonds was observed. The use of guanazole targets leads to higher efficiency in the nitrogen incorporation and in the formation of simple C-N bonds.

    Full Text Available Os benefícios proporcionados pela adição de carbono em concretos refratários têm ampliado a utilização destes materiais em aplicações siderúrgicas. Contudo, um dos problemas que ainda limita o emprego de concretos refratários contendo elevado teor de carbono é a corrosão de pós metálicos comumente empregados para conter a oxidação do carbono a altas temperaturas. Estudos preliminares mostraram que a corrosão das partículas metálicas é diretamente afetada pelas condições alcalinas promovidas pela presença de cimento. Diante disso, o objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito da temperatura e a influência de diferentes agentes ligantes sobre a resistência à corrosão de pós metálicos (Al e Si em água e em concretos refratários contendo elevado teor de carbono. Para isso, foi empregada uma técnica capaz de detectar a liberação de gás H2 como produto da reação de corrosão dos metais. Os resultados obtidos revelaram a possibilidade de aplicação dos pós metálicos em concreto refratário através da escolha de um ligante apropriado.The benefits promoted by carbon addition in refractory castables have led to an increase in the use of such materials in the steel making industry. Nevertheless, one of the problems that still hinder the use of high-carbon-containing castables is the corrosion of metal powders commonly used to prevent carbon oxidation at high temperatures. Preliminary studies have pointed out that the metal powders corrosion within the castables is affected by the aggressive alkaline conditions promoted by cement hydration. The present work aimed to evaluate the effect of temperature as well as the influence of different binders on the corrosion resistance of Al and Si powders in water and in high-carbon containing castables. A technique able to detect the H2-gas release was used to identify the metal powders corrosion. The results revealed the possibility of applying Al or Si powders in these

La estructura ferrita–austeníta que se forma en la unión del acero con la aleación es resultado del elevado contenido de carbono de la segunda. La baja velocidad de enfriamiento del cordón de soldadura revela ausencia de discontinuidades en el retículo cristalino de la zona afectada térmicamente y atenúa la formación de carburos de cromo del tipo Cr23C6, que puede formar la aleación A 351 grado HK 40 durante la difusión del volumen de fracción en masa del cromo.

  7. Study on tempering behaviour of AISI 410 stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Martensitic stainless steels find extensive applications due to their optimum combination of strength, hardness and wear-resistance in tempered condition. However, this class of steels is susceptible to embrittlement during tempering if it is carried out in a specific temperature range resulting in significant reduction in toughness. Embrittlement of as-normalised AISI 410 martensitic stainless steel, subjected to tempering treatment in the temperature range of 673–923 K was studied using Charpy impact tests followed by metallurgical investigations using field emission scanning electron and transmission electron microscopes. Carbides precipitated during tempering were extracted by electrochemical dissolution of the matrix and identified by X-ray diffraction. Studies indicated that temper embrittlement is highest when the steel is tempered at 823 K. Mostly iron rich carbides are present in the steel subjected to tempering at low temperatures of around 723 K, whereas chromium rich carbides (M23C6) dominate precipitation at high temperature tempering. The range 773–823 K is the transition temperature range for the precipitates, with both Fe2C and M23C6 types of carbides coexisting in the material. The nucleation of Fe2C within the martensite lath, during low temperature tempering, has a definite role in the embrittlement of this steel. Embrittlement is not observed at high temperature tempering because of precipitation of M23C6 carbides, instead of Fe2C, preferentially along the lath and prior austenite boundaries. Segregation of S and P, which is widely reported as one of the causes for temper embrittlement, could not be detected in the material even through Auger electron spectroscopy studies. - Highlights: • Tempering behaviour of AISI 410 steel is studied within 673–923 K temperature range. • Temperature regime of maximum embrittlement is identified as 773–848 K. • Results show that type of carbide precipitation varies with temperature of tempering

    Full Text Available GLOBALMENTE, a biota terrestre é um sumidouro significativo de dióxido de carbono (CO2 atmosférico. Estudos recentes do IPCC para a década de 1990 estimam a biota terrestre com sendo um sumidouro líquido de aproximadamente 1,4 gigatonelada de carbono por ano (assimilação líquida pela biota terrestre menos as emissões devidas às mudanças dos usos da terra. É provável que a maior parte desse suposto sumidouro aconteça nas florestas das latitudes médias e dos trópicos. Estudos do ciclo do carbono do Experimento LBA estão mostrando que as florestas não-perturbadas da Amazônia comportam-se com um forte sumidouro de carbono, com taxas na faixa de 1 a 7 toneladas por hectare por ano, ao passo que as áreas inundadas e os rios podem estar agindo como fonte de carbono de até 1,2 tonelada por hectare por ano. O desmatamento e a queima de biomassa representam uma emissão líquida de aproximadamente 0,2 gigatonelada de carbono por ano na Amazônia brasileira. Ainda que se leve em conta as grandes incertezas existentes sobre essas medidas, o balanço das evidências observacionais aponta para a possibilidade de que as florestas tropicais da América do Sul estejam funcionando como sumidouros de carbono da atmosfera.GLOBALLY, the terrestrial biota acts as a significant carbon sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2. The most recent estimate from IPCC for the 1990's puts the terrestrial biota at a net sink of 1.4 gigaton of carbon per year (net carbon uptake by the biota minus emissions from land use changes. It is likely that most of this presumed sink takes place in mid-latitude and tropical forests. Carbon cycle studies in the LBA Experiment indicate that the undisturbed forest of Amazonia may be a strong sink of carbon, at rates from 1 to 7 tons per hectare per year, whereas the wetlands may act as a source of carbon into the atmosphere of up to 1.2 ton per hectare per year.

    1995-08-01

    In March 1995 AISI completed a five-year, $60 million collaborative development program on Direct Steelmaking cost-shared by DOE under the Metals Initiative. This program defined an energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly technology to produce hot metal for steelmaking directly from coal and iron ore pellets without incurring the high capital costs and environmental problems associated with traditional coke oven and blast furnace technology. As it becomes necessary to replace present capacity, this new technology will be favored because of reduced capital costs, higher energy efficiency, and lower operating costs. In April 1994, having failed to move forward with a demonstration plant for direct ironmaking, despite substantial efforts by both Stelco and Geneva Steel, an alternative opportunity was sought to commercialize this new technology without waiting until existing ironmaking capacity needed to be replaced. Recycling and resource recovery of steel plant waste oxides was considered an attractive possibility. This led to approval of a ten-month, $8.3 million joint program with DOE on recycling steel plant waste oxides utilizing this new smelting technology. This highly successful trial program was completed in December 1994. The results of the pilot plant work and a feasibility study for a recycling demonstration plant are presented in this final technical report.

  13. Qualification criteria verification for aisi-4340 steel suspension lug

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    All external loads carried underneath an aircraft are mounted onto it through mechanism generally known as suspension system. The externally mounted attachments like bombs, missiles and fuel tanks etc. experience enormous aerodynamic and inertial forces in the flights. These forces are transferred to the interface point of suspension system, known as 'Suspension Lug'. Thus lugs are considered critical component and have extremely stringent qualification criteria standards used in the aviation industry in USA, Europe, Russia, etc. Different standards prevail in different parts of the world about qualification and testing of these lugs. As Pakistan is entering into aviation industry, therefore there is a need to fulfill the requirements of these standards, to suit Pakistani environment. The suspension lug under study is 2000 Ibs. load class made from AISI-4340 Steel having good mechanical properties as per required standard. The manufacturing processes included forging, machining and vacuum heat treatment. The prototypes of suspension lugs were manufactured in the local industry and subjected to the required mechanical tests such as tensile testing at 5 to 35 degree angles. Impact testing at cryogenic temperatures of -50 to -70 degree C, and breaking load testing were performed. The acceptable results were obtained and mechanical testing for qualification of lugs was finalized and standardized. The options were compared with practical viability, utilization of product and cost effectiveness. (author)

  14. Deformation induced martensite in AISI 316 stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The forming process leads to a considerable differentiation of the strain field within the billet, and finally causes the non-uniform distribution of the total strain, microstructure and properties of the material over the product cross-section. This paper focus on the influence of stress states on the deformation-induced a martensitic transformation in AISI Type 316 austenitic stainless steel. The formation of deformation-induced martensite is related to the austenite (g) instability at temperatures close or below room temperature. The structural transformation susceptibility is correlated to the stacking fault energy (SFE), which is a function not only of the chemical composition, but also of the testing temperature. Austenitic stainless steels possess high plasticity and can be easily cold formed. However, during cold processing the hardening phenomena always occurs. Nevertheless, the deformation-induced martensite transformation may enhance the rate of work-hardening and it may or may not be in favour of further material processing. Due to their high corrosion resistance and versatile mechanical properties the austenitic stainless steels are used in pressing of heat exchanger plates. However, this corrosion resistance is influenced by the amount of martensite formed during processing. In order to establish the links between total plastic strain, and martensitic transformation, the experimental tests were followed by numerical simulation. (Author) 21 refs.

    Plasma nitrocarburizing and plasma oxidizing treatments were performed to improve the wear and corrosion resistance of AISI 4140 steel.Plasma nitrocarburizing was conducted for 3 h at 570 ℃ in the nitrogen, hydrogen and methane atmosphere to produce the ε-Fe2-3(N,C) phase.It was found that the compound layer produced by plasma nitrocarburising was predominantly composed of ε-phase, with a small proportion of γ'-Fe4(N,C) phase.The thickness of the compound layer was about 10 μm and the diffusion layer was about 300 μm in thickness, respectively.Plasma post oxidation was performed on the nitrocarburized samples with various oxygen/hydrogen ratio at a constant temperature of 500 ℃ for 1 h.The very thin magnetite (Fe3O4) layer 1-2 μm in thickness on top of the compound layer was obtained by plasma post oxidation.It was confirmed that the corrosion characteristics of the nitrocarburized compound layer can be further improved by the application of the superficial magnetite layer.

  16. Environment-tensile property relationship in AISI 1018 steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Environment-material interaction depends on several concurrent and mutually competitive variables ranging from nature of the environment to composition of the steel and including: the test temperature; the time of exposure of the material to the environment; the deformation rate; and intrinsic microstructural effects; The present work is a characterization of strain rate and environment influences on the tensile properties of a steel, AISI 1018, having a fully spheroidized microstructure. Tensile tests were performed at ambient temperature (300 K) in environments which are mildly aggressive (moist laboratory air-relative humidity 50%) and inert (dry gaseous nitrogen). The specimens were deformed to failure at strain rates of 10-4sec-1 and 10-5sec-1. No appreciable increase in yield and tensile strengths was observed at the strain rate of 10-4sec-1. However, the increase in both was of the order of 10 to 12% at the strain rate of 10-5sec-1. Ductility showed no variation with strain rate, but increased in the inert environment at both strain rates. Both environment and strain rate were found to have little to no influence on reduction in area of the test specimens. The true fracture stress followed a similar trend to the yield strength and ultimate tensile strength. (author)

    Highlights: •The corrosion of AISI 1005 in sulfide solutions was investigated. •The mechanism of film growth on carbon steel in sulfide solutions was studied. •Film growth was characterized using SEM, EDX, XRD and Mössbauer spectroscopy. •Growth of AISI 1005 corrosion films under cyclic voltammetry. -- Abstract: The mechanism of AISI 1005 corrosion in sulfide ion solutions has been investigated using cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Mössbauer spectroscopy (MS). The proposed mechanism occurs with the initial formation of oxygenated ferrous species followed by adsorption of HS− species, precipitation of iron monosulfides and their partial conversion to bisulfide iron. This mechanism was demonstrated by XRD results that revealed Fe-O and Fe-S phases and by MS results that detected pyrite as the major proportion (94%) of the iron species in the corrosion product

  20. Study of radiation damages in AISI 316 and 347 steels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The CV-28 cyclotron at IEN (Nuclear Engineering Institute) has been used to simulated, in a short time scale, uniform He concentrations produced during neutron irradiation of metals by (n, α) reactions. Helium was implanted at concentrations of 1 to 300 ppm in 100 μm thick sheet samples of AISI 316 and 347 S S by degrading a 28 MeV alpha particle beam with a rotating energy degrader. The effects of He on the mechanical properties of the steels were studied by both non-destructive (positron annihilation) and destructive tests (tensile, creep, TEM and SEM). The positron lifetime measurements of irradiated and annealed samples were used as the base to discuss the He diffusion mechanism. Activation energies of 0.34±0.04 eV for 316 S S and 0.57±0.06 eV for 347 S S, characterized a dissociative process above 6500 C. TEM analyses have suggested the Ostwald ripening process for bubble growth over the full range of He concentrations studied. It was shown, in agreement with theoretical calculations that, by themselves the displacements produced during the helium implantation, at rate of 1.8 x 10-3 d pa/ppm, were not sufficient to cause significant changes in ductility. However, a strong ductility loss with increasing He concentration was observed for both types of steel for tensile tests at 250 C, as well as in creep at 7500 C over the range of strain (100 to 200 MPa). Finally, it was shown that charged particle simulation associated with positron annihilation techniques provides a fast, relatively low cost, and useful method to study different kinds of neutron damage in materials.

    Full Text Available The polarisation characteristics of the electropolishing process in a magnetic field (MEP – magnetoelectropolishing, in comparison with those obtained under standard/conventional process (EP conditions, have been obtained. The occurrence of an EP plateau has been observed in view of the optimization of MEP process. Up-to-date stainless steel surface studies always indicated some amount of free-metal atoms apart from the detected oxides and hydroxides. Such a morphology of the surface film usually affects the thermodynamic stability and corrosion resistance of surface oxide layer and is one of the most important features of stainless steels. With this new MEP process we can improve metal surface properties by making the stainless steel more resistant to halides encountered in a variety of environments. Furthermore, in this paper the stainless steel surface film study results have been presented. The results of the corrosion research carried out by the authors on the behaviour of the most commonly used material - medical grade AISI 316L stainless steel both in Ringer’s body fluid and in aqueous 3% NaCl solution have been investigated and presented earlier elsewhere, though some of these results, concerning the EIS Nyquist plots and polarization curves are also revealed herein. In this paper an attempt to explain this peculiar performance of 316L stainless steel has been undertaken. The SEM studies, Auger electron spectroscopy (AES and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS were performed on 316L samples after three treatments: MP – abrasive polishing (800 grit size, EP – conventional electrolytic polishing, and MEP – magnetoelectropolishing. It has been found that the proposed magnetoelectropolishing (MEP process considerably modifies the morphology and the composition of the surface film, thus leading to improved corrosion resistance of the studied 316L SS.

    The aim of this work is to improve the corrosion resistance of AISI D3 steel surfaces using a [Ti-Al/Ti-Al-N] n multilayer system deposited with different periods (Λ) and bilayer numbers ( n), via magnetron co-sputtering pulsed d.c. procedure, from a metallic (Ti-Al) binary target. The multilayer coatings were characterized by cross-sectional scanning electron microscopy that showed the modulation and microstructure of the [Ti-Al/Ti-Al-N] n multilayer system. The composition of the single Ti-Al and Ti-Al-N layer films was studied via x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, where typical signals for Ti2p1/2, Ti2p, N1s, and Al2p3/2 were detected. The electrochemical properties were evaluated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and Tafel polarization curves. The optimal electrochemical behavior was obtained for the [Ti-Al/Ti-Al-N] n multilayered period of Λ = 25 nm (100 bilayers). At these conditions, the maximum polarization resistance (1719.32 kΩ cm2) and corrosion rate (0.7 μmy) were 300 and 35 times higher than that of uncoated AISI D3 steel substrate (5.61 kΩ cm2 and 25 μmy, respectively). Finally, scanning electron microscopy was used to analyze the [Ti-Al/Ti-Al-N] n multilayered surface after the corrosive attack. The improvement effects in the electrochemical behavior of the AISI D3 coated with the [Ti-Al/Ti-Al-N] n multilayered coatings could be attributed to the number of interfaces that act as obstacles for the inward and outward diffusions of Cl- ions, generating an increment in the energy or potential required for translating the corrosive ions across the coating/substrate interface.

    Full Text Available Abstract - Samples of high purity grade and commercial purity grade type AISI 304L and AISI 316L steels were studied by the potentiodynamic and potentiostatic techniques in a naturally aerated 3.5% NaCl aqueous solution at a controlled temperature of (23±2°C. The anodic polarization curves of the potentiodynamic technique showed that not always is it possible to determine pitting potential: most of the curves of commercial purity grade steels displayed a smooth curvature in the region where the current density should increase sharply. The density current versus time potentiostatic curves also showed different shapes according to the purity grade steels: for the commercial purity grade steels, the current density showed large oscillations with time (related to unstable pits, whereas for the high purity grade steels, a regular behavior of current density as a function of time was found (related to stable pits

  13. Study of carbonitriding thermochemical treatment by plasma screen in active with pressures main austenitic stainless steels AISI 409 and AISI 316L

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The technique called Active Screen Plasma Nitriding (ASPN) is being used as an alternative once it offers several advantages with respect to conventional DC plasma. In this method, the plasma does not form directly in the sample's surface but on a screen, in such a way that undesired effects such as the edge effect is minimized. Stainless steels present not very satisfactory wearing characteristics. However, plasma carbonitriding has been used as to improve its resistance to wearing due to the formation of a fine surface layer with good properties. In this work, samples of stainless steel AISI 316L and AISI 409 were treated at pressures of 2.5 and 5 mbar. After the treatments they were characterized by microhardness, microscopy and Xray diffraction. Microscopy and hardness analysis showed satisfactory layers and toughness in those steels. (author)

  14. Evaluation of structural behaviour and corrosion resistant of austenitic AISI 304 and duplex AISI 2304 stainless steel reinforcements embedded in ordinary Portland cement mortars

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The mechanical and structural behaviour of two stainless steels reinforcements, with grades austenitic EN 1.4301 (AISI 304) and duplex EN 1.4362 (AISI 2304) have been studied, and compared with the conventional carbon steel B500SD rebar. The study was conducted at three levels: at rebar level, at section level and at structural element level. The different mechanical properties of stainless steel directly influence the behaviour at section level and structural element level. The study of the corrosion behaviour of the two stainless steels has been performed by electrochemical measurements, monitoring the corrosion potential and the lineal polarization resistance (LPR), of reinforcements embedded in ordinary Portland cement (OPC) mortar specimens contaminated with different amount of chloride over one year time exposure. Both stainless steels specimens embedded in OPC mortar remain in the passive state for all the chloride concentration range studied after one year exposure. (Author) 26 refs.

  16. Wear resistance of Fe-Nb-Cr-W, Nb, AISI 1020 and AISI 420 coatings produced by thermal spray wire arc

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The commercial materials 140MXC (with iron, tungsten, chrome, niobium), 530AS (AISI 1015 steel) and 560AS (AISI 420 steel) on AISI 4340 steel were deposited using thermal spray with arc. The aim of work was to evaluate the best strategy abrasive wear resistance of the system coating-substrate using the following combinations: (1) homogeneous coatings and (2) coatings depositing simultaneously 140MXC + 530AS and 140MXC + 560AS. The coatings microstructure was characterized using Optical microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy and Laser con focal microscopy. The wear resistance was evaluated through dry sand rubber wheel test (DSRW). We found that the wear resistance depends on the quantity of defects and the mechanical properties like hardness. For example, the softer coatings have the biggest wear rates and the failure mode was characterized by plastic deformation caused by particles indentation, and the other hand the failure mode at the harder materials was grooving. The details and wear mechanism of the coatings produced are described in this investigation. (Author)

  18. Influence of plasma nitriding on the hardness of AISI 304 and low carbon steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nitriding with plasma/ion nitriding technique for surface treatment of AISI 304 and low carbon steel as a machine component material has been done. Surface treatment is meant to improve the surface quality of metal especially its hardness. To reach the optimum condition it has been done a variation of nitriding pressure, while to analyse the result it has been done the hardness and microstructure test, and the nitrogen content. Result of the test indicates that: the optimum hardness obtained at 1.8 mbar of pressure that is 624.9 VHN or 2.98 times while the initial hardness is 210.3 VHN for AISI 304 and 581.6 VHN or 3.07 times compare with initial hardness 142.9 VHN for low carbon steel. The thickness of nitride layer for AISI 304 and low carbon steel is around 30 µm. Nitrogen contents after nitriding are 10.74% mass or 30.32% atom for AISI 304 and 6.81% mass or 21.76% atom for low carbon steel. (author)

    Full Text Available In this work the quality of grape seed oil obtained by extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide was studied. At the optimun operating conditions (313 K and 25 MPa, the yield of supercritical extraction is similar to the conventional extraction by liquid solvent, but the quality of the grape seed oil extracted by supercritical carbon dioxide is higher.
    Furthermore, supercritical extraction could be more economical than liquid extraction because the solvent removal by distillation is not necessary and several steps of the subsequent oil refining process can be eliminated.

    En este trabajo se realiza un estudio de la calidad del aceite de semillas de uva obtenido por extracción con dióxido de carbono supercrítico. En las condiciones operativas óptimas del proceso (313 K y 25 MPa el rendimiento de la extracción supercrítica es similar al de la extracción con disolventes líquidos, pero la calidad del aceite es muy superior.
    En consecuencia, el proceso supercrítico resulta competitivo con el convencional al reducir las etapas de refinado del aceite y eliminar la destilación del disolvente, las más costosas desde el punto de vista energético.

    Two metallic powders namely Ni-20Cr and Ni3Al were coated on AISI 309 SS steel by shrouded plasma spray process. The wear behavior of the bare, Ni-20Cr and Ni3Al-coated AISI 309 SS steel was investigated according to ASTM Standard G99-03 on a Pin-on-Disc Wear Test Rig. The wear tests were carried out at normal loads of 30 and 50 N with a sliding velocity of 1 m/s. Cumulative wear rate and coefficient of friction (μ) were calculated for all the cases. The worn-out surfaces were then examined by scanning electron microscopy analysis. Both the as-sprayed coatings exhibited typical splat morphology. The XRD analysis indicated the formation of Ni phase for the Ni-20Cr coating and Ni3Al phase for the Ni3Al coating. It has been concluded that the plasma-sprayed Ni-20Cr and Ni3Al coatings can be useful to reduce the wear rate of AISI 309 SS steel. The coatings were found to be adherent to the substrate steel during the wear tests. The plasma-sprayed Ni3Al coating has been recommended as a better choice to reduce the wear of AISI 309 SS steel, in comparison with the Ni-20Cr coating.

  4. Effect of heat treatment on an AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel evaluated by the ultrasonic attenuation coefficient

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The properties of metals can be substantially changed by various methods, one of them is using heat treatment processes. Moreover, ultrasonic testing is the most preferred and effective, nondestructive testing technique for characterization of mechanical material properties. Austenitic stainless steel AISI 304 serves in many applications due to high strength and corrosion resistance. In certain applications, it is important to evaluate the mechanical properties of AISI 304 stainless steel. In this study, the ultrasonic method (attenuation measurement technique) is used to evaluate the hardness of AISI 304 stainless steel samples which were heat treated at different levels. Due to the heat treatment process, each sample has its specific microstructure and hardness which attenuate ultrasonic waves appropriately. The ultrasonic and hardness test show that it is possible to evaluate the hardness of AISI 304 stainless steel by ultrasonic attenuation coefficient. In addition, the relationship between ultrasonic attenuation coefficients and time of heat treatment is investigated.

    This experimental study is conducted to determine statistical models of cutting forces in hard turning of AISI H11 hot work tool steel (∼ 50 HRC). This steel is free from tungsten on Cr–Mo–V basis, insensitive to temperature changes and having a high wear resistance. It is employed for the manufacture of highly stressed diecasting moulds and inserts with high tool life expectancy, plastic moulds subject to high stress, helicopter rotor blades and forging dies. The workpiece is machined by a mixed ceramic tool (insert CC650 of chemical composition 70%Al23+30%TiC) under dry conditions. Based on 33 full factorial design, a total of 27 tests were carried out. The range of each parameter is set at three different levels, namely low, medium and high. Mathematical models were deduced by software Minitab (multiple linear regression and response surface methodology) in order to express the influence degree of the main cutting variables such as cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut on cutting force components. These models would be helpful in selecting cutting variables for optimization of hard cutting process. The results indicate that the depth of cut is the dominant factor affecting cutting force components. The feed rate influences tangential cutting force more than radial and axial forces. The cutting speed affects radial force more than tangential and axial forces.

  8. Determination of the morphological textures of fibres in a composite material made from a textile of AISI 316L fibres

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The orientation distribution (morphological texture) of fibres in a composite is very important in determining the properties of the material. Therefore, methods which can provide quantitative descriptions of the morphological texture are essential. One approach to determining the morphological texture function (MTF) is to measure the orientation distribution of the crystals in the fibres. Since many types of fibres used for reinforcements are crystalline and textured (i.e. carbon fibres, steel fibres, etc.) this approach may be interesting for commercial/industrial applications. For this technique to be applied, the crystallographic texture intrinsic to the fibres must be determined and subsequently, measurements of the 'global' crystallographic texture should be made in the composite. The morphological texture can then be calculated by a deconvolution of the composite texture with the fibre's crystallographic texture. The deconvolution is most easily performed using the series expansion representation of texture functions. In this paper, the morphological texture was determined in a woven fabric made from bundle drawn AISI 316L stainless steel fibres embedded in an Al-13wt% Si alloy matrix. Straight fibres removed from the fabric serve as the reference material for the deconvolution. Neutron diffraction pole figures were used to determine the MTF's. (orig.)

  11. AISI 316L under electron radiolysis at high temperature and pressure in PWR modelling conditions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    temperature (HT), 280-320 deg. C, and high pressure (HP), 15.5 MPa. Very few data are available in the literature on the role of HTHP water radiolysis on the corrosion of metallic reactor components. The present approach use electron beam to control the production of radiolytic species at a AISI 316L/PWR solution interface in a high temperature and high pressure (HTHP) electrochemical cell working at the range [25 deg. C, 1 bar] - [300 deg. C, 90 bar]. The cell is designed to record the free corrosion potential of the AISI 316L/PWR solution interface mounted on line at the SIRIUS pelletron delivering the electron beam (LSI, Ecole Polytechnique, France). The PWR primary solutions are simulated by aqueous solutions prepared at room temperature by adding boric acid and lithium hydroxide to high purity water and, in some cases, purged with Ar/H2 flow. At the AISI 316L/PWR solution interfaces irradiated between 25 deg. C/ 1 bar and 300 deg. C/ 90 bar, electrons emerge at ∼0.6 MeV and the flux varies from ∼1010 to 1012 e-.cm-2.s-1. The results clearly show that the response of the free potential between the AISI316L/water interface and a pseudo-reference electrode, i.e. a platinum wire during the irradiation (from electron beam switch-on until cut-off) depends on many parameters: the energy of the electron beam, the temperature and pressure, the concentration of hydrogen in the solution, the ageing of the disc electrode, the growth conditions of the initial oxide passive layers, etc... These results can be compared with those which have obtained by using the proton beam (CEMHTI, CNRS Orleans, France). Surface characterization experiments (XPS, SEM, Raman spectroscopy, photoluminescence...) on the oxide layer of AISI316L which are formed under the irradiation could also bring new information about the irradiation influence on the AISI316L.

The characterization of the commercial fluxes reveals that they are produced by simple mechanical blend of minerals, using feldspars and clays as base materials, containing SiO2, Al2O3, Na2 O and in less quantity K2O, MgO, Fe2 O3and MnO; limestone as the main source of CaO, fluorspar (CaF2 used to control the viscosity and graphite as carbon source. Melting-solidification tests revealed melting and fluidity temperatures and the existence of abundant mineralogical phases formed during the flux solidification. Some important mineralogical compounds are the nepheline (NaAlSiO4 and cuspidine (Ca4Si2O7F2; these species have a direct influence on the heat transfer phenomena from strand to mold and therefore on the phase transformations and the shrinkage of the steel.

  5. Behavior of AISI SAE 1020 steel implanted by titanium and exposed to bacteria sulphate deoxidizer

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A hybrid technology to treat solid surfaces with the pulse high voltage and electric arc discharges of low pressure with a three-dimensional ion implantation technique (3DII) is applied. This technology is used to protect AISI SAE 1020 steel against a microbiological corrosion. The titanium ion implanted steel samples (coupons) are subjected to a medium of bacteria sulphate deoxidizer (BSD) which are very typical of the hydrocarbon industry and are potentially harmful for structures when are in contact with petroleum and some of its derivatives. The used technology aims to find an effective hybrid procedure to minimize the harmful effects of bacteria on AISI SAE 1020 steel. The hybrid technology efficiency of superficial titanium implantation is estimated through the measurements of the point corrosion characteristics obtained after testing both the treated and non-treated coupons. The three-dimensional surface structures of the samples are reconstructed with help of a confocal microscope.

    Friction welding is widely used as a mass production method in various industries. In the present study, an experimental set-up was designed in order to achieve friction welding of plastically deformed AISI 1021 steels. In this study, low alloy steel (AISI 1021) was welded under different welding parameters and afterwards the mechanical properties such as tensile strength, impact strength and hardness were experimentally determined. On the basis of the results obtained from the experimentation, the graphs were plotted. It is the strength of welded joints, which is fundamental property to the service reliability of the weldments and hence present work was undertaken to study the influence of axial pressure and rotational speed in friction welded joints. Axial pressure and rotational speed are the two major parameters which can influence the strength and hence the mechanical properties of the friction welded joints. Thus the axial pressure and rotational speed were taken as welding parameters, which reflect the mechanical properties.

    The mechanical and structural behaviour of two stainless steels reinforcements, with grades austenitic EN 1.4301 (AISI 304) and duplex EN 1.4362 (AISI 2304) have been studied, and compared with the conventional carbon steel B500SD rebar. The study was conducted at three levels: at rebar level, at section level and at structural element level. The different mechanical properties of stainless steel directly influence the behaviour at section level and structural element level. The study of the corrosion behaviour of the two stainless steels has been performed by electrochemical measurements, monitoring the corrosion potential and the lineal polarization resistance (LPR), of reinforcements embedded in ordinary Portland cement (OPC) mortar specimens contaminated with different amount of chloride over one year time exposure. Both stainless steels specimens embedded in OPC mortar remain in the passive state for all the chloride concentration range studied after one year exposure. (Author) 26 refs.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The surface morphology, surface roughness and micro-crack of AISI D2 tool steel machined by the electrical discharge machining (EDM) process were analyzed by means of the atomic force microscopy (AFM) technique. Experimental results indicate that the surface texture after EDM is determined by the discharge energy during processing. An excellent machined finish can be obtained by setting the machine parameters at a low pulse energy. The surface roughness and the depth of the micro-cracks were proportional to the power input. Furthermore, the AFM application yielded information about the depth of the micro-cracks is particularly important in the post treatment of AISI D2 tool steel machined by EDM

  10. Tool life and surface roughness of ceramic cutting tool when turning AISI D2 tool steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The tool life of physical vapor deposition (PVD) titanium nitride (TiN) coated ceramic when turning AISI D2 tool steel of hardness 54-55 HRC was investigated. The experiments were conducted at various cutting speed and feed rate combinations with constant depth of cut and under dry cutting condition. The tool life of the cutting tool for all cutting conditions was obtained. The tool failure mode and wear mechanism were also investigated. The wear mechanism that is responsible for the wear form is abrasion and diffusion. Flank wear and crater wear are the main wear form found when turning AISI D2 grade hardened steel with 54-55 HRC using KY 4400 ceramic cutting tool. Additionally catastrophic failure is observed at cutting speed of 183 m/min and feed rate of 0.16 mm/ rev. (author)

  11. Analysis of pulsed Nd:YAG laser welding of AISI 304 steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Pulsed laser welding of AISI 304 stainless steel plate was simulated using commercial finite element software to determine the optimal welding conditions. Due to geometric symmetry, only one plate was modeled to reduce the simulation computation time. User subroutines were created to account for a moving three-dimensional heat source and to apply boundary conditions. The material properties such as conductivity, specific heat, and mass density were determined as functions of temperature. The latent heat was considered within the given temperature range. The three-dimensional heat source model for pulsed laser beam butt welding was designed by comparing the finite element analysis results and experimental data. This successful simulation of pulsed Nd:YAG laser welding for AISI 304 stainless steel will prove useful for determining optimal welding conditions

  12. Radiation-induced evolution of austenite matrix in silicon-modified AISI 316 alloys

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The microstructures of a series of silicon-modified AISI 316 alloys irradiated to fast neutron fluences of about 2-3 and 10 x 1022 n/cm2 (E > 0.1 MeV at temperatures ranging from 4000C to 6000C have been examined. The irradiation of AISI 316 leads to an extensive repartition of several elements, particularly nickel and silicon, between the matrix and various precipitate phases. The segregation of nickel at void and grain boundary surfaces at the expense of other faster-diffusing elements is a clear indication that one of the mechanisms driving the microchemical evolution is the Inverse Kirkendall effect. There is evidence that at one sink this mechanism is in competition with the solute drag process associated with interstitial gradients

  13. Martensitic transformation on AISI 304 stainless steel produced by a coaxial plasma gun

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: In a previous paper, a surface treatment of AISI 304 stainless steel irradiated by a Nitrogen ion beam generated in a coaxial plasma gun has been reported. The device is operated with a Titanium insert at the end of the inner electrode, producing a TiN coating on the surface of the sample. Because of the ion and plasma energy deposition, the sample surface is strongly heated during the treatment resulting in titanium diffusion. Preliminary X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies have shown the presence of a martensitic transformation on AISI 304 samples, probably induced by Ti atoms. In this work, the transformation depth is studied with grazing-incidence XRD on samples subjected to several superimposed shots. For this purpose, multiple low angles of incidence are used, allowing the analysis at different depths of the substrate

    This paper presents the results obtained with a new ball burnishing tool developed for the mechanical treatment of large flat surfaces. Several parameters can affect the mechanical behavior and fatigue of workpiece. Our study focused on the effect of the burnishing force on the surface quality and on the service properties (mechanical behavior, fatigue) of AISI 1010 steel hot-rolled plates. Experimental results assert that burnishing force not exceeding 300 N causes an increase in the ductility. In addition, results indicated that the effect of the burnishing force on the residual surface stress was greater in the direction of advance than in the cross-feed direction. Furthermore, the flat burnishing surfaces did not improve the fatigue strength of AISI 1010 steel flat specimens.

    Full Text Available Investigation of the surface treatment effect on the resistance of AISI 316Ti stainless steel to pitting corrosion is presented in this paper. The grinded surfaces without additional chemical treatment, grinded and pickled, grinded, pickled and passivated surfaces are tested. The corrosion tests are carried out by exposition in solution which evoke pitting and by electrochemical cyclic potential - sweep method. According to the results the surface treatment has a great influence on the resistance of the tested material to pitting. It is not possible to estimate the best surface treatment because behavior of AISI 316Ti stainless steel with different surface state depends on the mechanism of corrosion processes which vary in the used experimental methods.

    Full Text Available The main aim of this work is to monitor the surface treatment impact on the corrosion resistance of the welded stainless steel AISI 316L to local corrosion forms. The excellent corrosion resistance of austenitic stainless steel is caused by the existence of stable, thin and well adhering passive layer which quality is strongly influenced by welding. Therefore surface treatment of stainless steel is very important with regard to its local corrosion susceptibility Surfaces of welded stainless steel were treated by various mechanical methods (grinding, garnet blasting. Surface properties were studied by SEM, corrosion resistance was evaluated after exposition tests in chlorides environment using weight and metalographic analysis. The experimental outcomes confirmed that the mechanical finishing has a significant effect on the corrosion behavior of welded stainless steel AISI 316L.

  18. Embrittlement and strain hardining of the hydrogenated AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The influence of hydrogen the mechanical properties of type AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel was analysed. Hydrogenation was performed cathodically, at room temperature, in a 1N H2SO4 solution. The variables controlled for analysis were current density and time. Uniaxial tensile tests were conducted with constant nominal strain rate. Fracture morphology was analysed by scanning electron microscopy and the kinetics of strain hardening by applying Ludwick's equation to the resulting stress-strain curves. It was verified that hydrogen embrittles markedly, the austenitic AISI 304 steel, leading to a significant loss of ductility and modifying the fracture made, from essentially ductile to a transgrannular fragile fracture, containing small regions of intergranular fracture. With increasing amounts of hydrogen there was also a decrease in the maximum uniform stress, the strength coefficient, the strain hardening exponent and in the range the deformation stages II and III extended.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Data about influence of neutron irradiation on the microhardness of stainless steel of type AISI 321 with 0.05 and 0.1wt.% Nb additions are presented. The microhardness measurements were made in the range of 300 to 6500C, before and after fast neutron irradiation with fluences about 1017n/cm2. Our results indicate that radiation damage peaks occur around 4800C for the stainless steel of type AISI 321 without Nb addition, around 5000C for the composition with 0.05 wt.% Nb addition and around 5700C for the composition with 0.1 wt.% Nb addition. Microhardness data are in agreement with those obtained by means of electrical resistivity measurements, performed at the same conditions. (Author)

    The technique called Active Screen Plasma Nitriding (ASPN) is being used as an alternative once it offers several advantages with respect to conventional DC plasma. In this method, the plasma does not form directly in the sample's surface but on a screen, in such a way that undesired effects such as the edge effect is minimized. Stainless steels present not very satisfactory wearing characteristics. However, plasma carbonitriding has been used as to improve its resistance to wearing due to the formation of a fine surface layer with good properties. In this work, samples of stainless steel AISI 316L and AISI 409 were treated at pressures of 2.5 and 5 mbar. After the treatments they were characterized by microhardness, microscopy and Xray diffraction. Microscopy and hardness analysis showed satisfactory layers and toughness in those steels. (author)

    This paper analyzes the changes occurred in the energy consumption and carbon dioxide in the Mexican cement industry. For this purpose, the energy consumption and the emissions are broken up into three types of changes that affect the energy demand of an industry: activity, structure and energy intensity. According to this analysis it is found that the Mexican cement industry has suffered an important reduction in the energy intensity as a result of the disappearance, almost complete, of the wet production process, of the increment in the production of pozzolanic cement and in the opening of new high technology industries. With respect to the intensity of carbon dioxide emissions it does not decrease at the same rate than the energy intensity due to the increased consumption of the fuel oil over the natural gas. At the end of this paper an international comparison is presented of the energy specific consumption and of its emissions. [Espanol] En este articulo se analizan los cambios ocurridos en el consumo de energia y emisiones de bioxido de carbono de la industria cementera mexicana. Para ello, se desagrega el consumo de energia y las emisiones en tres tipos de cambios que influyen en la demanda energetica de una industria: actividad, estructura, e intensidad energetica. De acuerdo con este analisis se encuentra que la industria cementera mexicana ha sufrido un importante decremento en la intensidad energetica producto de la desaparicion, casi por completo, del proceso de produccion por via humeda, del incremento en la produccion del cemento puzolanico y de la apertura de nuevas industrias con alta tecnologia. Por su parte, la intensidad en las emisiones de bioxido de carbono no disminuye a la misma tasa que la intensidad energetica debido al incremento en el uso del combustoleo sobre el gas natural. Al final del articulo se presenta una comparacion internacional del consumo especifico de energia y de las emisiones.

    This work investigates the isothermal oxidation behavior of as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309 at 1,173 K in air flow rate of 40 cm{sup 3} x min{sup -1} using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). In 33 hours, the oxidation resistance declines from high to low are as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309, respectively. The oxidation kinetic results show that the exponential rate constant of the as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309 are 8.79 x 10{sup -6}, 4.02 x 10{sup -5} and 4.35 x 10{sup -5} g x cm{sup -2} x s{sup -n}, respectively. The exponential growth rates of as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309 are 0.42, 0.29 and 0.32, respectively. It indicates that the oxidation kinetic of as cast 26Cr-16Ni approaches a parabolic rate law, but those of as cold-rolled and as cast AISI 309 approach the cubic rate law. The sequence of oxide scale formations on the tested samples is also discussed.

In 33 hours, the oxidation resistance declines from high to low are as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309, respectively. The oxidation kinetic results show that the exponential rate constant of the as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309 are 8.79 x 10-6, 4.02 x 10-5 and 4.35 x 10-5 g x cm-2 x s-n, respectively. The exponential growth rates of as cast 26Cr-16Ni, as cold-rolled AISI 309 and as cast AISI 309 are 0.42, 0.29 and 0.32, respectively. It indicates that the oxidation kinetic of as cast 26Cr-16Ni approaches a parabolic rate law, but those of as cold-rolled and as cast AISI 309 approach the cubic rate law. The sequence of oxide scale formations on the tested samples is also discussed.

  18. Study of corrosion resistance of AISI 444 ferritic stainless steel for application as a biomaterial

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ferritic stainless steels are ferromagnetic materials. This property does not allow their use in orthopedic prosthesis. Nevertheless, in some specific applications, this characteristic is very useful, such as, for fixing dental and facial prostheses by using magnetic attachments. In this study, the corrosion resistance and cytotoxicity of the AISI 444 ferritic stainless steel, with low nickel content, extra-low interstitial levels (C and N) and Ti and Nb stabilizers, were investigated for magnetic dental attachments application. The ISO 5832-1 (ASTM F-139) austenitic stainless steel and a commercial universal keeper for dental attachment (Neo-magnet System) were evaluated for comparison reasons. The first stainless steel is the most used metallic material for prostheses, and the second one, is a ferromagnetic keeper for dental prostheses (NeoM). In vitro cytotoxicity analysis was performed by the red neutral incorporation method. The results showed that the AISI 444 stainless steel is non cytotoxic. The corrosion resistance was studied by anodic polarization methods and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), in a saline phosphate buffered solution (PBS) at 37 °C. The electronic properties of the passive film formed on AISI 444 SS were evaluated by the Mott-Schottky approach. All tested materials showed passivity in the PBS medium and the passive oxide film presented a duplex nature. The highest susceptibility to pitting corrosion was associated to the NeoM SS. This steel was also associated to the highest dopant concentration. The comparatively low levels of chromium (nearly 12.5%) and molybdenum (0.3%) of NeoM relatively to the other studied stainless steels are the probable cause of its lower corrosion resistance. The NeoM chemical composition does not match that of the SUS444 standards. The AISI 444 SS pitting resistance was equivalent to the ISO 5832-1 pointing out that it is a potential candidate for replacement of commercial ferromagnetic alloys used

    The aim of this study was to identify the crystallographic structure of the extracted carbides of AISI M2 steel spray formed The structure determination of these carbides. The structure determination of these carbides is a very hard work. Since these structures were formed by atom migration it is not possible to reproduce them by a controlled process with a determined chemical composition. The solution of this problem is to obtain the carbide by chemical extraction from the steel. (Author)

  5. Stoichiometric titanium dioxide ion implantation in AISI 304 stainless steel for corrosion protection

    2015-12-01

    The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability of highly chemically inert titanium dioxide synthesized by ion beam implantation for corrosion protection of AISI 304 stainless steel in sodium chloride solution. More specifically, the prevention of galvanic corrosion between carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and AISI 304 was investigated. Corrosion performance of TiO2 implanted AISI 304 - examined for different implantation and annealing parameters - is strongly influenced by implantation fluence. Experimental results show that a fluence of 5 × 1016 cm-2 (Ti+) and 1 × 1017 cm-2 (O+) is sufficient to prevent pitting corrosion significantly, while galvanic corrosion with CFRP can already be noticeably reduced by an implantation fluence of 5 × 1015 cm-2 (Ti+) and 1 × 1016 cm-2 (O+). Surface roughness, implantation energy and annealing at 200 °C and 400 °C show only little influence on the corrosion behavior. TEM analysis indicates the existence of stoichiometric TiO2 inside the steel matrix for medium fluences and the formation of a separated metal oxide layer for high fluences.

  6. Non local approach in crystalline plasticity: study of mechanical behaviour of AISI 316LN stainless steel during low cycle fatigue

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    If fatigue crack initiation is currently quite well understood for pure single crystals, its comprehension and prediction in cases of polycrystal alloys such as AISI 316LN stainless steel remain complicated. Experimentally our study focuses on the characterisation of the mechanical behaviour and on the study at different scales of the phenomenon leading to low cycle fatigue crack initiation in 316LN stainless steel. For straining amplitudes of?e/2 = 0,3 and 0,5%, the cyclic softening observed during testing has been related to the organisation of dislocations in band structures. These bands, formed due to the activation of slip systems having the greatest Schmid's factor, carry the most part of the deformation. Their emergence at free surfaces leads to the formation of intrusions and extrusions which help cracks initiate and spread. Numerically we worked on the mesoscopic scale, proposing a new model of crystalline plasticity. This model integrates geometrically necessary dislocations (GND) directly computed from the lattice curvature. Implemented in the finite element code AbaqusTM and Cast3mTM, it is based on single crystal finite deformations laws proposed by Peirce et al. (1983) and Teodosiu et al. (1993). Extended for polycrystals by Hoc (2001) and Erieau (2003), it has been improved by the introduction of GND (Acharya and Bassani, 2000). The simulations performed on different types of aggregates (2D/3D) have shown that taking GND into account enables:- the prediction of the grain size effect on a macroscopic and on a local scale,- a finer computation of local stress field.The influence of the elasticity and interaction matrices on the values and the evolution of the isotropic and kinematic mean stresses has been shown. The importance of boundary conditions on computed mechanical fields could also be pointed out. (author)

    2015-05-01

    Laser beam welding of dissimilar AISI 440C and AISI 430F stainless steels was investigated in a circular constrained configuration. The beam incidence angle and the offset of the focusing position respect to the contact point between the two materials were used as main control parameters to vary the melting ratio inside the seam. The objective of the study is twofold: to avoid surface microcracks related to the high percentage of carbon of the martensitic steel and to enhance the shear strength of the weld by making it less brittle. To reach this scope the effects of incidence angle and offset on weld bead geometry and melting ratio were studied by means of metallographic analyses, microstructure and microhardness characterization. As last step, the weld mechanical strength was tested by tensile-shear stress test on the whole seam. Experiments demonstrated that varying incidence angle and offsetting the focal position is a reliable method to modify the melting ratio and maintaining the expected resistance length at the material interface, as well. It was found that increasing the percentage of ferritic steel into the joint has beneficial effects on the weld quality and on the shear resistance. The critical carbon content determining the mechanical properties in the fusion zone can be calculated by taking into account the melting ratio.

Assim, inventariaram-se todas as árvores com DAP igual ou superior a 5 cm presentes na Universidade. Para as árvores não palmeiras, selecionaram-se 721 árvores-amostra, que foram cubadas rigorosamente em pé através da aplicação sucessiva da expressão de Smalian até o diâmetro-limite de 5 cm, tanto para o fuste quanto para os galhos. No caso das palmeiras, cubaram-se 100% dos indivíduos utilizando a expressão de Huber. A densidade básica da madeira com casca e o teor de carbono foram obtidos, nas palmeiras, com a retirada de um disco na porção do DAP, dada a dificuldade de tradagem. Já nas demais árvores, utilizou-se um trado mecânico. Com base no volume, na densidade básica e no teor de carbono, calcularam-se o carbono total e o carbono dos galhos. Ademais, avaliaram-se os modelos de Schumacher e Hall (1933 e Spurr (1952, modificado para estimar o carbono fixado nesses indivíduos. Nas árvores não palmeiras do campus-sede da Universidade Federal de Viçosa, o carbono total e o carbono dos galhos podem ser estimados, em kg, em razão do Diâmetro à Altura do Peito (DAP, em cm e da Altura Total (Ht, em m, por -0,906586+1,60421*LnDAP+0,37162*LnHt e por -2,052673+1,89903*LnDAP+0,24156*LnHt, respectivamente.

    Full Text Available This work deals with the experimental study of the flank wear evolution of two coating carbide inserts and a cermet insert during the dry finishing turning of AISI 1045 steel with 400, 500 and 600 m/min cutting speeds. The results were analyzed using the variance analysis and lineal regression analysis in order to describe the relationship between the flank wear and machining time, obtaining the adjusted model equation. The investigation demonstrated a significant effect of cutting speed and machining time on the flank wear at high speed machining. The three coating layers insert showed the best performance while the two layers insert had the worst behaviour of the cutting tool wear at high cutting speeds.

    El objetivo de este trabajo es el estudio experimental de la evolución del desgaste del flanco respecto al tiempo de dos insertos de carburo recubiertos y un cermet durante el torneado de acabado en seco del acero AISI 1045 con velocidades de corte de 400, 500 y 600 m/min. Los resultados fueron comparados utilizando el análisis de varianza y el análisis de regresión lineal para describir la relación entre el desgaste del flanco y el tiempo de maquinado, obteniéndose la ecuación del modelo ajustado. La investigación demostró un efecto significativo de la velocidad de corte y del tiempo de maquinado en el desgaste del flanco en el maquinado de alta velocidad.

    Full Text Available Se presenta y analiza el concepto de huella del carbono, su origen, su relación con los gases efecto invernadero, y sobre los procedimientos para cuantificarla. El efecto invernadero provoca que la energía que llega a la Tierra sea devuelta más lentamente, por lo que es mantenida más tiempo junto a la superficie elevando la temperatura. Es aceptado hoy en día que este efecto es producido por algunos gases liberados en forma natural o por las acciones humanas. La Huella de Carbono es considerada una de las más importantes herramientas para cuantificar las emisiones de gases efecto invernadero y en forma muy general, representa la cantidad de gases efecto invernadero emitidos a la atmósfera derivados de las actividades de producción o consumo de bienes y servicios. Al no existir consenso en cuanto a la definición y menos en la cuantificación de la huella del carbono, la primera parte de este trabajo analiza las principales corrientes y enfoques actuales.The concept of Carbon Footprint, its origin, its relation with greenhouse gases and the methods to quantify it are presented and analyzed. The so-called greenhouse effect causes that the energy that reaches the earth at a certain rate is returned to a slower rate, increasing the temperature of the earth surface. Additionally, it is nowadays accepted that this effect is produced by some gases that are naturally emitted or produced by human actions. The Carbon Footprint is considered to be one of the most important tools for quantifying greenhouse emissions and in a general form it represents the quantity of gases emitted to the atmosphere and that is produced by human activities, and by goods and service consumption. Since there is no consensus about the definition of Carbon Footprint or the forms of quantifying it, this first part of the paper series analyzes the main concept and the main present views on the Carbon Footprint.

  15. Effect of Al added to a NiCrMo alloy on the development of the oxide layer of intermetallic coatings

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Components performance in different environment is strongly dependent on oxides that develop on their surfaces. This study analyzed the oxide layer that develops on coatings processed with mixtures of an atomized Hastelloy C alloy with Al powders. Powder mixtures containing 10, 20 and 30wt%Al were deposited on AISI 1020 and AISI304 steel plates. Coatings were subsequently exposed to 850 deg C for two hours in a low PO2 environment. X-ray diffraction was used to identify the phases that developed in the coating during processing and Raman analysis and Scanning Electron Microscopy were used to characterize the oxide layers. The results showed that coatings processed with the richer Al mixtures, 30wt%Al, which developed NiAl aluminides, reduced the development of α alumina when processing was done on AISI 304. Coatings processed on AISI 1020 with the three powder mixtures tested developed the different allotropic forms of alumina, as predicted for the tested temperature. (author)

    Steam turbines are used in the generation of more than half the electric energy produced in the world nowadays. It is important the study which aims to improve the efficiency by means of the optimization of leaks and of the aerodynamic profiles, as well as to maintain the integrity of the components. The martensitic stainless steels are widely employed due to the combination of their good mechanical properties with higher corrosion resistance. However, their lower wear resistance and their poor tribological behavior limit their use, since they decrease the component life time. In order to evaluate the improvement in the performance of the AISI 410 stainless steel, several process of surface modification were employed. Five samples were produced: the first one was not treated, the second one received liquid nitriding, the third, gas nitriding, the forth, thermal aspersion of tungsten carbide, and the fifth, boronizing. The samples were characterized by optical microscopy, surface microhardness, and X-ray diffractometry. (author)

    This report analyses the influence of the use of an inert gas welding chamber with a totally inert atmosphere on the microstructure and mechanical properties of austenitic AISI 316L stainless steel TIG welds, using AISI ER316L, AISI 308L and Inconel 625 as filler metals. When compared with the typical TIG process, the use of the inert gas chamber induced changes in the microstructure, mainly an increase in the presence of vermicular ferrite and ferrite stringers, what resulted in higher yield strengths and lower values of hardness. Its effect on other characteristics of the joins, such as tensile strength, depended on the filler metal. The best combination of mechanical characteristics was obtained when welding in the inert gas chamber using Inconel 625 as filler metal. (Author). 12 refs.

  1. Effect of aging at 700 deg. C on precipitation and toughness of AISI 321 and AISI 347 austenitic stainless steel welds

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A detailed knowledge of changes in microstructures and mechanical behaviour that occur in austenitic stainless steels with or without Nb/Ti-stabilized weld during heat treatment is of great interest, since the ductility and toughness of the material may change drastically after long aging times. Two kinds of materials, i.e. AISI 321 base and without Ti-stabilized weld steel and AISI 347 base with Nb-stabilized weld steel, were compared during aging at 700 deg. C up to 6000 h. Both materials present increased amount of precipitate and decreased impact energy as the aging time increases. The decreased extent of impact energy with aging is almost the same for both base materials. However, it presents differences for 347 and 321 weld samples. The latter shows a more drastic decrease of impact energy than the former due to the different amount of precipitates. 321 weld sample precipitates more numerously than 347 weld sample due to the absence of stabilized Ti/Nb on the former. Large amount of carbides is formed on 321 weld sample immediately after welding. The carbides are transformed to sigma phase, which is mainly responsible for the much more sigma phase precipitation compared with other samples, after high-temperature aging. The fractographs showed, in general, brittle fracture mode in 321 weld impact-fractured specimens after aging at 700 deg. C for 6000 h. However, other samples show ductile fracture mode in general. Several approaches should be employed to control sigma phase precipitation in weld material. These approaches include: decreasing content of ferrite and M23C6 carbide in weld and selecting Nb added weld wire during welding

    Friction stir processing (FSP) was successfully applied on AISI 52100 steel. The influence of process parameters on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the material was evaluated. It was observed that the initial ferritic-pearlitic microstructure of the base metal is transformed to the martensitic microstructure with retained austenite in the stir zone. The results also showed that microhardness and wear resistance of the FSP samples are, respectively, at least 2 and 15 times higher than those of the base metal. The improvement of the mechanical properties of FSP samples was attributed to their microstructural characteristics. The mechanisms controlling the wear behavior of the base metal and FSP samples were also discussed.

    The effect of pulsed plasma nitriding temperature and time on the pitting corrosion behaviour of AISI H13 tool steel in 0.9% NaCl solutions was investigated by cyclic polarization. The pitting potential (E{sub pit}) was found to be dependent on the composition, microstructure and morphology of the surface layers, whose properties were determined by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques. The best corrosion protection was observed for samples nitrided at 480 {sup o}C and 520 {sup o}C. Under such experimental conditions the E{sub pit}-values shifted up to 1.25 V in the positive direction.

    Weldments of AISI grade 316 stainless steel, having a ferrite content of 4–6% and a variety of nitrogen concentrations were prepared using a modified element implant technique. Charpy impact specimens prepared from these weldments were subjected to a variety of aging treatments. Impact toughness decreases with aging time at all aging temperatures. Nitrogen is found to be beneficial to toughness. An empirical relation connecting the aging temperature, aging time and nitrogen content with toughness has been developed which can be used to estimate the time for embrittlement.

  18. Microstructural origins of yield strength changes in AISI 316 during fission or fusion irradiation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The changes in yield strength of AISI 316 irradiated in breeder reactors have been successfully modeled in terms of concurrent changes in microstructural components. Two new insights involving the strength contributions of voids and Frank loops have been incorporated into the hardening models. Both the radiation-induced microstructure and the yield strength exhibit transients which are then followed by saturation at a level dependent on the irradiation temperature. Extrapolation to anticipated fusion behavior based on microstructural comparisons leads to the conclusion that the primary influence of transmutational differences is only to alter the transient behavior and not the saturation level of yield strength

The temperature and microstructure during the quenching process for large-sized AISI P20 steel die blocks have been simulated using the finite element method (FEM). The optimum quenching technology of large-sized AISI P20 steel die blocks has been proposed based on the simulation results, which not only can effectively avoid quenching cracks and obtain deeper hardened depth, but also can improve the microstructure and properties of the large-sized die blocks.

  1. Optimization of the contact mechanical strength of magnetron-sputtered nitrogen-doped AISI 316L physically vapour deposited coatings

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The reactive magnetron sputtering technique adopted produces perfectly adhering nitrogen-doped AISI 316L coatings on construction and stainless steel substrates (AISI 316L and 4135). Surface mechanical testing was done by indentation and sclerometric, frictional, low cycle fatigue. The major damage parameters adopted were the critical coating cracking loads, track depression and lateral pile-up volumes. It is shown that the detrimental effect of growth defects on coating brittleness can be controlled to some extent by optimizing substrate surface treatment prior to and bias voltage during deposition.

    Full Text Available The austenitic grain growth has been studied in a low carbon HSLA steel using a model of simples carbides and nitrides. A quantitative criterion for abnormal grain growth has been established and the optimal conditions of heat treatment have also been found. These optimal conditions are the time and the temperature that provide the minimum homogeneous grain size. This optimisation is important because the grain growth at the beginning of the γ → α determines the development of this, and the final properties of the structure.

    En el presente estudio se ha analizado el efecto que tienen los elementos microaleantes sobre el crecimiento de la fase austenítica en un acero HSLA de bajo contenido en carbono, mediante un modelo teórico de carburos y nitruros simples. Además, se ha establecido un criterio cuantitativo que permite discernir acerca de cuando se produce el crecimiento anormal y se han hallado las condiciones óptimas de austenización para el acero objeto de estudio, es decir, aquellas condiciones que generan el menor tamaño de grano homogéneo. La optimización de los parámetros (temperatura y tiempo de austenización para conseguir un tamaño de grano homogéneo mínimo, es importante puesto que el tamaño de grano austenítico al inicio de la transformación γ → α determina tanto el desarrollo de ésta como el tamaño de grano de la microestructura final, originando unas determinadas propiedades de resistencia y tenacidad.

  19. Dynamic strain ageing of deformed nitrogen-alloyed AISI 316 stainless steels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Intergranular stress corrosion cracking has occurred in BWR environment in non-sensitized, deformed austenitic stainless steel materials. The affecting parameters are so far not fully known, but deformation mechanisms may be decisive. The effect of deformation and nitrogen content on the behaviour of austenitic stainless steels was investigated. The materials were austenitic stainless steels of AISI 316L type with different amounts of nitrogen (0.03 - 0.18%) and they were mechanically deformed 0, 5 and 20%. The investigations are focused on the dynamic strain ageing (DSA) behaviour. A few crack growth rate measurements are performed on nuclear grade AISI 316NG material with different degrees of deformation (0, 5 and 20%). The effects of DSA on mechanical properties of these materials are evaluated based on peaks in ultimate tensile strength and strain hardening coefficient and minimum in ductility in the DSA temperature range. Additionally, internal friction measurements have been performed in the temperature range of -100 to 600 deg. C for determining nitrogen interactions with other alloying elements and dislocations (cold-worked samples). The results show an effect of nitrogen on the stainless steel behaviour, e.g. clear indications of dynamic strain ageing and changes in the internal friction peaks as a function of nitrogen content and amount of deformation.

    2015-05-01

    In this study, AISI D2 tool steel underwent friction stir processing (FSP). The microstructure, mechanical properties, and corrosion resistance of the FSPed materials were then evaluated. A flat WC-Co tool was used; the rotation rate of the tool varied from 400 to 800 rpm, and the travel speed was maintained constant at 385 mm/s during the process. FSP improved mechanical properties and produced ultrafine-grained surface layers in the tool steel. Mechanical properties improvement is attributed to the homogenous distribution of two types of fine (0.2-0.3 μm) and coarse (1.6 μm) carbides in duplex ferrite-martensite matrix. In addition to the refinement of the carbides, the homogenous dispersion of the particles was found to be more effective in enhancing mechanical properties at 500 rpm tool rotation rate. The improved corrosion resistance was observed and is attributed to the volume fraction of low-angle grain boundaries produced after friction stir process of the AISI D2 steel.

  1. Modeling of the flow stress for AISI H13 Tool Steel during Hard Machining Processes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In general, the flow stress models used in computer simulation of machining processes are a function of effective strain, effective strain rate and temperature developed during the cutting process. However, these models do not adequately describe the material behavior in hard machining, where a range of material hardness between 45 and 60 HRC are used. Thus, depending on the specific material hardness different material models must be used in modeling the cutting process. This paper describes the development of a hardness-based flow stress and fracture models for the AISI H13 tool steel, which can be applied for range of material hardness mentioned above. These models were implemented in a non-isothermal viscoplastic numerical model to simulate the machining process for AISI H13 with various hardness values and applying different cutting regime parameters. Predicted results are validated by comparing them with experimental results found in the literature. They are found to predict reasonably well the cutting forces as well as the change in chip morphology from continuous to segmented chip as the material hardness change

  2. Modelling of Tool Wear and Residual Stress during Machining of AISI H13 Tool Steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Residual stresses can enhance or impair the ability of a component to withstand loading conditions in service (fatigue, creep, stress corrosion cracking, etc.), depending on their nature: compressive or tensile, respectively. This poses enormous problems in structural assembly as this affects the structural integrity of the whole part. In addition, tool wear issues are of critical importance in manufacturing since these affect component quality, tool life and machining cost. Therefore, prediction and control of both tool wear and the residual stresses in machining are absolutely necessary. In this work, a two-dimensional Finite Element model using an implicit Lagrangian formulation with an automatic remeshing was applied to simulate the orthogonal cutting process of AISI H13 tool steel. To validate such model the predicted and experimentally measured chip geometry, cutting forces, temperatures, tool wear and residual stresses on the machined affected layers were compared. The proposed FE model allowed us to investigate the influence of tool geometry, cutting regime parameters and tool wear on residual stress distribution in the machined surface and subsurface of AISI H13 tool steel. The obtained results permit to conclude that in order to reduce the magnitude of surface residual stresses, the cutting speed should be increased, the uncut chip thickness (or feed) should be reduced and machining with honed tools having large cutting edge radii produce better results than chamfered tools. Moreover, increasing tool wear increases the magnitude of surface residual stresses

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper attempts to optimize the predominated machining parameters in Electro Chemical Machining (ECM of AISI 202 Austenitic stainless steel using Response Surface Methodology (RSM. The chosen material has been used in railway rolling stock. The selected influencing parameters are applied voltage, electrolyte discharge rate with three levels and tool feed rate with four levels. Thirty six experiments were conducted through design of experiments and central composite design in RSM was applied to identify the optimum conditions which turn into the best Material Removal Rate (MRR and Surface roughness (SR. The experimental analyses reveal that applied voltage of 16 V, tool feed rate of 0.54 mm/min and electrolyte discharge rate of 10 L/min would be the optimum values in ECM of AISI 202 under the selected conditions. For checking the optimality of the developed equation, MRR of 298.276 mm3/min and surface roughness Ra of 2.05 µm were predicted at applied voltage of 12.5 V, tool feed rate of 0.54 mm/min and electrolyte discharge rate of 11.8 L/min with composite desirability of 98.05%. Confirmatory tests showed that the actual performance at the optimum conditions were 291.351 mm3/min and 2.17 µm. The deviation from the predicted performance is less than 6% which proves the composite desirability of the developed models for MRR and surface roughness.

  4. Characterization of a nitrurated coat in AISI 420 and SAE 1040 steels with different thermal treatments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    According to the results obtained in tribological tests, they are heavily influenced by the behavior of the tribosurfaces as well as by the substrate of the erosion couple. This work was undertaken in order to better understand these surface layers, by characterizing the layer of ionic nitruration compounds in test pieces of AISI 420 stainless steel with different thermal treatments and under the influence of the alloying elements while they are being formed. Circular test pieces of AISI 420 stainless steel and SAE 1040 steel were used. Samples of both groups were quenched and tempered at 673 K and 943 K. Then they were ionically nitrurated at 25% N2 and 75% H2, for 20 h at a pressure of 0.15 MPa. The qualitative determination of the present phases was carried out by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and with grade line X-ray diffraction. The thicknesses for the nitrurated layers were established by Vickers microhardness variation. The morphology, size, distribution and preferred site of carbide precipitation were analyzed by optic microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show the influence of the alloying elements and of the prior microstructure, product of the different tempering temperatures, on the morphology of the nitrurated layer (CW)

  5. Improvement in cavitation erosion resistance of AISI 316L stainless steel by friction stir processing

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Commercial AISI 316L plates with the initial grain size of 14.8 μm were friction stir processed (FSP) with different processing parameters, resulting in two fine-grained microstructures with the grain sizes of 4.6 and 1.7 μm. The cavitation erosion behavior, before and after FSP, was evaluated in terms of incubation time, cumulative mass loss and mean depth of erosion. A separate cavitation erosion test was performed on the transverse cross section of a FSP sample to reveal the effect of grain structure. It was observed that FSP samples, depending on their grain size, are at least 3–6 times more resistant than the base material against cavitation erosion. The improvement in cavitation erosion resistance is attributed to smaller grain structure, lower fraction of twin boundaries, and favorable crystallographic orientation of grains in FSP samples. The finer the grain size, the more cavitation erosion resistance was achieved. Moreover, the microstructures of eroded surfaces were studied using a scanning electron microscope equipped with EBSD, and an atomic force microscope. The mechanisms controlling the cavitation erosion damage in friction stir processed AISI 316L are also discussed.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: ► Total replacement of Co binder by stainless steel AISI 304 in WC based composites. ► Processing conditions for WC–stainless steel composites. ► Mechanical behavior and oxidation resistance of WC–stainless steel composites. -- Abstract: Tungsten carbide–stainless steel (AISI 304) based composites were successfully prepared by powder metallurgy routes using vacuum sintering at a maximum temperature of 1500 °C. The effects of the binder amount (between 6 and 15 wt.%) on the phase composition, microstructure and mechanical properties, namely hardness and fracture toughness, were investigated. Appreciable amount of (M,W)6C up to 12 wt.% was detected, especially for the higher SS contents. However, a good compromise between toughness and hardness was observed. Besides that, improved oxidation resistance was noticed in WC–SS based composites compared with WC–Co composites. The results are discussed having in mind the correlation between chemical composition, phase composition, microstructure and mechanical behavior

  7. Microstructure evolution in nano/submicron grained AISI 301LN stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The phase and microstructure evolution of a heavily cold-rolled AISI 301LN stainless steel (SS), before and after annealing is discussed. AISI 301LN SS has been cold-rolled to 63% rolling reduction and subsequently annealed from 600 to 1000 deg. C for short annealing durations (1-100 s). Phase analysis indicates that the cold-rolled sheet comprises almost 100% martensite, while transmission electron microscopy examination reveals its morphology to be of dislocation cell- and heavily deformed lath-type martensite. The martensite → austenite reversion upon annealing at 600 deg. C for 1 and 10 s is negligible, but nanoscale austenite grains are formed in the martensitic matrix. Partial reversion to nano/submicron austenite grains is observed for samples annealed at 600 deg. C for 100 s, and 700 deg. C for 1 s. Samples annealed at higher temperatures exhibit a complete reversion to submicron/nano-austenite grains with a large grain size variation, as well as secondary phase chromium nitride precipitates.

    The electrochemical behavior of and biofilm formation on AISI 304 stainless steel were studied in board machine environment with natural bacteria population. Open circuit potentials, redox-potential as well as different electrochemical measurements were performed. The biofilms formed were analyzed by microbial cultivation and by epifluorescence microscopy. The results of the measurements were compared with those performed both in sterilized white water and in artificial white water. The anodic polarization behavior of just immersed specimens was very similar in biotic (real), artificial and abiotic (sterilized) white water. Pitting initiated at very low potentials and continued to very negative values. The initiation of pitting became more difficult when the immersion time increased to 7 or 8 days in real, artificial or sterilized water. When the immersion time further increased, the pitting nucleated more easily in sterilized white water as well as in artificial white water than in biotic white water. In the laboratory equipment it was possible to maintain the biofilm already formed in the board mill, but the amount of sulfate reducing bacteria decreased and the amount of biofilm did not further increase. The composition and structure of the biofilm formed in laboratory differed from that formed in board mill conditions. The preliminary results indicate that the formation of biofilm in biotic white water rather inhibits than enhances the pitting corrosion of type AISI 304 stainless steel.

    Hydrogen embrittlement of low-Ni austenitic stainless steels is suggested to occur due to strain-induced surface alpha -martensite, since the hydrogen diffusivity in bcc phases is expected to be much higher than in the austenitic phase. But, also the local surface chemistry might be responsible for the steel susceptibility. The surface chemistry on two different surface conditions of AISI 304 was investigated by Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry: a. directly after the machining process and b. after solution annealing process. For both AISI 304 surfaces a layered stacking of Fe- and Cr-oxide was found. The oxide layer thickness was about 5 nm for sample a., and about 10 nm for sample b. The chemical mapping on sample a. shows relatively homogeneous elemental distributions due to the fine microstructure of martensite. For sample b, Fe, Ni, SiO2, FeO and NiO are segregated at the grain boundaries. In contrast, Cr and CrO are distributed in grains.

  10. Niobium boride layers deposition on the surface AISI D2 steel by a duplex treatment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper, we investigated the possibility of deposition of niobium boride layers on the surface of AISI D2 steel by a duplex treatment. At the first step of duplex treatment, boronizing was performed on AISI D2 steel samples at 1000oC for 2h and then pre-boronized samples niobized at 850°C, 900°C and 950°C using thermo-reactive deposition method for 1–4 h. The presence of the niobium boride layers such as NbB, NbB2 and Nb3B4 and also iron boride phases such as FeB, Fe2B were examined by X-ray diffraction analysis. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and micro-hardness measurements were realized. Experimental studies showed that the depth of the coating layers increased with increasing temperature and times and also ranged from 0.42 µm to 2.43 µm, depending on treatment time and temperature. The hardness of the niobium boride layer was 2620±180 HV0.005

    Commercial AISI 316L plates with the initial grain size of 14.8 μm were friction stir processed (FSP) with different processing parameters, resulting in two fine-grained microstructures with the grain sizes of 4.6 and 1.7 μm. The cavitation erosion behavior, before and after FSP, was evaluated in terms of incubation time, cumulative mass loss and mean depth of erosion. A separate cavitation erosion test was performed on the transverse cross section of a FSP sample to reveal the effect of grain structure. It was observed that FSP samples, depending on their grain size, are at least 3-6 times more resistant than the base material against cavitation erosion. The improvement in cavitation erosion resistance is attributed to smaller grain structure, lower fraction of twin boundaries, and favorable crystallographic orientation of grains in FSP samples. The finer the grain size, the more cavitation erosion resistance was achieved. Moreover, the microstructures of eroded surfaces were studied using a scanning electron microscope equipped with EBSD, and an atomic force microscope. The mechanisms controlling the cavitation erosion damage in friction stir processed AISI 316L are also discussed.

    The effects of inclusions due to steelmaking processes on the fatigue life of AISI 4140 have been investigated. The test matrix consisted of three commercially produced heats of AISI 4140 of comparable cleanliness: one was conventionally cast (CC), and two were inert gas-shielded/ bottom-poured (IGS). One of the IGS heats was calcium-treated to explore the effects of inclusion shape control (IGS/SC). All heats were hot-rolled and reduced over 95 pct to produce bar stock of 127 to 152 mm (5 to 6 in.) in diameter. Transverse axial specimens conforming to ASTM E466 were machined, quenched, and tempered to approximately 40 HRC, and they were fatigue tested in tension-tension cycling ( R = 0.1). Test results and statistical analyses of the stress-life data show that the IGS grade has several times the fatigue strength of the CC grade at 107 cycles. Lower-limit fatigue strengths calculated at a 99.9 pct probability were 518.5 MPa (75.2 ksi) for IGS vs 55.6 MPa (8.1 ksi) for the CC grade. The IGS/SC grade had the best performance at all stress and life levels. The results obtained indicate that fatigue performance can be improved by choosing a processing method that reduces the incidence of exogenous oxides and by controlling the shape of the sulfides.

  15. Using Mather-Type Plasma focus Device for Surface Modification of AISI304 Steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A 8.8 kJ plasma focus device with a nitrogen gas filling and a copper anode capsulated by aluminum was used to modify the surface of AISI304 steel substrate, in order to improve its properties. The treatment was carried out using a various number of nitrogen plasma focus shots at a pressure of 0.5 mbar and at two steel sample distances (20 and 40 mm) from the anode. The plasma diagnostics was made using the voltage and current curves recorded by a voltage divider, Rogowski coil, accompanied with calculations using a five phase radiative Lee model (RADPF5.15a) to determine the temperature and plasma density. The surface hardness of AISI304 steel was increased by 175% after plasma treatment and the thickness of the treated layers was about 1-2 μ. Results show that the surface hardness is increased with increasing shot number and decreased with increasing distance from the anode. Changes in surface morphology and the elemental composition were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). (author)

    Intergranular stress corrosion cracking has occurred in BWR environment in non-sensitized, deformed austenitic stainless steel materials. The affecting parameters are so far not fully known, but deformation mechanisms may be decisive. The effect of deformation and nitrogen content on the behaviour of austenitic stainless steels was investigated. The materials were austenitic stainless steels of AISI 316L type with different amounts of nitrogen (0.03 - 0.18%) and they were mechanically deformed 0, 5 and 20%. The investigations are focused on the dynamic strain ageing (DSA) behaviour. A few crack growth rate measurements are performed on nuclear grade AISI 316NG material with different degrees of deformation (0, 5 and 20%). The effects of DSA on mechanical properties of these materials are evaluated based on peaks in ultimate tensile strength and strain hardening coefficient and minimum in ductility in the DSA temperature range. Additionally, internal friction measurements have been performed in the temperature range of -100 to 600 deg. C for determining nitrogen interactions with other alloying elements and dislocations (cold-worked samples). The results show an effect of nitrogen on the stainless steel behaviour, e.g. clear indications of dynamic strain ageing and changes in the internal friction peaks as a function of nitrogen content and amount of deformation.

    Spur gear endurance tests and rolling-element surface fatigue tests are conducted to investigate EX-53 and CBS 1000M steels for use as advanced application gear materials, to determine their endurance characteristics, and to compare the results with the standard AISI 9310 gear material. The gear pitch diameter is 8.89 cm (3.50 in). Gear test conditions are an oil inlet temperature of 320 K (116 F), an oil outlet temperature of 350 K (170 F), a maximum Hertz stress of 1.71 GPa (248 ksi), and a speed of 10,000 rpm. Bench-type rolling-element fatigue tests are conducted at ambient temperature with a bar specimen speed of 12,500 rpm and a maximum Hertz stress of 4.83 GPa (700 ksi). The EX-53 test gears have a surface fatigue life of twice that of the AISI 9310 spur gears. The CBS 1000M test gears have a surface fatigue life of more than twice that of the AISI 9310 spur gears. However, the CBS 1000M gears experience a 30-percent tooth fracture failure which limits its use as a gear material. The rolling-contact fatigue lines of RC bar specimens of EX-53 and ASISI 9310 are approximately equal. However, the CBS 1000M RC specimens have a surface fatigue life of about 50 percent that of the AISI 9310.

  10. Wear measurements of stainless steel AISI 316 by thin layer activation in cyclotron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nuclear energy techniques have multiple applications in medicine, agriculture and industry. Among the industrial applications, thin layer activation shows as a promising quantitative analytic method for on-line wear measurements in machine components with many advantages when compared with the conventional methods. Some of these advantages are beside the on-line measurements the possibility to carry out these measurements in specific areas where the material is activated and also for a short time required in the wear analysis. The main objective of this work was to study the viability to develop an experimental method using proton irradiation in the thin layer activation technique for wear evaluation of machine metallic components. In this work wear measurements, in stainless steel AISI 316 irradiated with 8 MeV - protons using the CV-28 Cyclotron at IPEN-CNEN/SP, were carried out. The first task of this work was the proton beam characterization in both homogeneity and incident energy using specific nuclear reactions in samples of pure Cu. Two sets of stainless steel AISI 316 samples were used. The first set were formed by 12.5 μm foils which were used to obtain the calibration curves that give the induced activity as a function of thickness. The second set of samples was stainless steel AISI 316 blocks on which consecutive programmed wear processes were performed using an automatic polishing machine. After proton irradiation the foils activated were measured with a high purity Ge detector where 56Co, 57Co, 58Co and 52Mn were determined and selected as a function of the proton energy and the radioactive decay of the radionuclides of short half-life. From these radionuclides, 56Co had shown to be the worse suitable for the calibration curve determination. For on-line wear measurements a Nal(Tl)-detector with a portable probe was used. To simulate real conditions for the wear measurements, metallic capsules were used to separate the activated material and the

    Two different methods were used in the tests: the premature fracture method and the tensile test under hydrogen charging method, on AISI 9840 steel corrosion specimens. The aim of this work was to reveal the hydrogen effects on plastic deformation in tensile tests with or without simultaneous hydrogen charging. True stress-true strain curves have clearly shown the material`s different behaviour in the two tests: in the case of premature fracture tests, during plastic deformation, dislocations glide and allow hydrogen to escape and the material to partially regain its properties more rapidly; on the contrary, in the case of tensile tests under hydrogen charging, the interaction between the penetrating hydrogen and the Cottrell clouds (pre-existing hydrogen) slackens dislocation glide, so that plastic deformation is greatly reduced, as is shown both from the diagrams and the SEM analyses.

    Surfaces of AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel plates nitrided by plasma immersion ion implantation (PIII) technology were studied by means of Auger electron spectroscopy (AES)and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)to determine the effect of the nitriding process on the surface and subjacent layers.Elemental compositions obtained by AES and XPS at varying depths indicate that the saturation of N is relatively constant as a function of depth,indicating the reliability of PIII technology for subsurface saturation.It is concluded that the concentrations of both Cr and O increase with depth,the subjacent oxide is driven by the Ar+ sputtering process used to access the lower layers,and then N is bound to Cr.

    2012-10-01

    In this article, fracture toughness behavior of tool steel was investigated using Acoustic Emission (AE) monitoring. Fracture toughness ( K IC) values of a specific tool steel was determined by applying various approaches based on conventional AE parameters, such as Acoustic Emission Cumulative Count (AECC), Acoustic Emission Energy Rate (AEER), and the combination of mechanical characteristics and AE information called sentry function. The critical fracture toughness values during crack propagation were achieved by means of relationship between the integral of the sentry function and cumulative fracture toughness (KICUM). Specimens were selected from AISI D2 cold-work tool steel and were heat treated at four different tempering conditions (300, 450, 525, and 575 °C). The results achieved through AE approaches were then compared with a methodology proposed by compact specimen testing according to ASTM standard E399. It was concluded that AE information was an efficient method to investigate fracture characteristics.

    Crystallographic texture developments during friction stir processing (FSP) of AISI D2 tool were studied with respect to grain sizes in different tool rotation rates. Comparison of the grain sizes in various rotation rates confirmed that grain refinement occurred progressively in higher rotation rates by severe plastic deformation. It was found that the predominant mechanism during FSP should be dynamic recovery (DRV) happened concurrently with continuous dynamic recrystallization (CDRX) caused by particle-stimulated nucleation (PSN). The developed shear texture relates to the ideal shear textures of D1 and D2 in bcc metals. The prevalence of highly dense arrangement of close-packed planes of bcc and the lowest Taylor factor showed the lowest compressive residual stress which is responsible for better mechanical properties compared with the grain-precipitate refinement.

    2015-05-01

    The present paper investigates the potential of using eddy current technique as a reliable nondestructive tool to detect microstructural changes during the different stages of tempering treatment in AISI D2 tool steel. Five stages occur in tempering of the steel: precipitation of ɛ carbides, formation of cementite, retained austenite decomposition, secondary hardening effect and spheroidization of carbides. These stages were characterized by destructive methods, including dilatometry, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopic observations, and hardness measurements. The microstructural changes alter the electrical resistivity/magnetic saturation, which, in turn, influence the eddy current signals. Two EC parameters, induced voltage sensed by pickup coil and impedance point detected by excitation coil, were evaluated as a function of tempering temperature to characterize the microstructural features, nondestructively. The study revealed that a good correlation exists between the EC parameters and the microstructural changes.

    We describe the microstructure of Nd:YAG continuous wave laser surface melted high-speed steel, namely AISI M2, treated with different laser scanning speeds and beam diameters on its surface. Microstructural characterization of the remelted surface layer was performed using light optical and scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The combination of the three techniques provided new insights into the substantial changes induced by laser surface melting of the steel surface layer. The advantage of the method is that it avoids the difficult and tedious work of preparing samples of this hard material for transmission electron microscopy, which is the technique normally used to study these fine microstructures. A melted zone with a dendritic structure and a partially melted zone with a heterogeneous cellular structure were observed. M(2)C carbides with different morphologies were identified in the resolidified surface layer after laser melting. PMID:20701656

    Full Text Available In this work, a numerical investigation is carried out on the anisotropic and heterogeneous behaviour of the AISI H11 martensitic tool steel surface using finite element method and a multi-scale approach. An elasto-viscoplastic model that considers nonlinear isotropic and kinematic hardenings is implemented in the finite elements code ABAQUS using small strain assumption. The parameters of the constitutive equations are identified using macroscopic quasi-static and cyclic material responses by the mean of a localization rule. Virtual realistic microstructures, consisting of laths and grains, are generated using particular Voronoï tessellations. These microstructures consider the specific crystallographic orientations α’/γ. Finite element investigation is then performed. The local heterogeneous and anisotropic behaviour of the surface as well as the subsurface is shown under quasi-static and cyclic mechanical loadings. The laths morphology and crystallographic orientation have an important impact on the local mechanical fields.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: ► MBN was used to follow the martensite transformation in a tool steel. ► The results were compared with resistivity experiments. ► The Ms was estimated with Andrews equation coupled to ThermoCalc calculations. The experimental results showed good agreement. -- Abstract: The use of Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) as a experimental method for measuring the martensite start (Ms) temperature was explored, using as model system a cold-work tool steel (AISI D2) austenitized at a very high temperature (1473 K), so as to transform in sub-zero temperatures. The progress of the transformation was also followed with electrical resistance measurements, optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Both MBN and resistivity measurements showed a change near 230 K during cooling, corresponding to the Ms temperature, as compared with 245 K, estimated with Andrews empirical equation applied to the austenite composition calculated using ThermoCalc

    Full Text Available AISI 304L stainless steel powder compacts containing 2 vol% high purity rare earth oxides were prepared by mixing the different powders in a vibratory mill followed by pressing. The compacts thus obtained were sintered in a vacuum furnace and isothermal oxidation measurements were carried out in a muffle furnace, in air, up to 200 hours at 900 °C. The oxidized surfaces were examined in a scanning electron microscope and micro regions of the reaction products were studied using energy dispersive analysis. The addition of rare earth oxides decreased the oxidation rate of the stainless steel. Further evidence of predominant oxygen ion diffusion controlling the overall oxidation process in rare earth containing chromium oxide forming alloys has been observed.

    Karthik, D.; Swaroop, S.

    2016-07-01

    The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of laser peening without coating (LPwC) on austenitic to martensitic (γ → α') phase transformation and corrosion behavior of austenitic stainless steel AISI 321 in 3.5% NaCl environment. Results indicate that LPwC induces a large compressive residual stresses of nearly -854 MPa and γ → α' phase transformation of about 18% (volume fraction). Microstructures of peened surface confirmed the γ → α' phase transformation and showed no grain refinement. Hardness increased slightly with a case depth of 900 μm. Despite the smaller surface roughness introduced, corrosion resistance improved after peening due to compressive residual stresses.

  5. The effect of internal hydrogen on surface slip localisation on polycrystalline AISI 316L stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A statistical analysis of the effect of internal hydrogen on the surface slip morphology of relatively high nickel content AISI 316L type austenitic stainless steel was carried out on high resolution data obtained by atomic force microscopy. Surface plastic strain localisation was studied for different hydrogen contents, two grain sizes, and two plastic strain levels. The height and spacing of approximately 8000 slip bands, observed on 12 specimens, are shown to follow log-normal distributions. Hydrogen increased the mean slip-band height and the mean slip-band spacing for the two macroscopic plastic strain levels considered, and for the two hydrogen concentrations in coarse-grained specimens. The hydrogen effect was also observed for fine-grained specimens, but only for the highest hydrogen concentration. In addition, the emerging dislocation velocity increased by a factor 3 for high hydrogen content.

  6. Effect of constraint on fracture behavior of welded 17mn4 and AISI304 steels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this study, 17Mn4 (P295GH) pressure vessels steel and AISI304 stainless steel were welded with ER309L austenitic consumable. In experimental part of the study, tensile tests were conducted on welded plates and variation of hardness values along specimen was measured. J-integral fracture toughness values were investigated for different crack locations. In order to determine the regions where plastic deformation did not take place due to constraint, uni-axial tensile test was performed on welded tensile specimen after attaching strain gauges. In numerical part of the study, finite element (FE) analyses were conducted by fixing 2-D models precracked on different locations by using ANSYS software. In these models, stress triaxiality and plastic deformation characteristics around crack tip were determined for each crack locations after stress and strain analyses. The limitation on the extension of plastic deformation at diffusion line causes extra increase in stress triaxiality at crack tip

  7. Effect of the Surface Roughness on Galvanic Corrosion of AISI 316 Stainless Steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    One of the major problems that can be raised in different mechanical designs in many different applications such as reactors, piping systems and production of hot cells, machine tools, is the galvanic corrosion. Many studies have been carried out concerning the dangerous effect of galvanic corrosion that usually occur between two mating components of dissimilar metals. So far limited attention has been paid to the effect of the surface roughness of two mating parts of two mating parts of same material on their mutual galvanic corrosion. The present work presents a practical study on galvanic corrosion concerning the remarkable effect of the use of two mating parts of same materials (AISI 316 St. St.) but having different values of surface roughness. From this investigation, it is concluded that designers must classify the surface roughness of the mating parts in their design to have the same value, to minimize galvanic corrosion

    Metastable austenite stainless steel AISI 316L is sensitive to cold deformation, where transformation from austenite to martensite occurred. The bending deformation as the formation process leads to tensile and compression throughout the thickness of the billet. Tensile testing of the specimen causes differences in the true stress-strain along the contraction neck prior to fracture as well. The aim of the paper is to find correlation between microhardness as brief inspection parameters and extension of martensitic transformation. The total equivalent plastic strain extend diagram obtained by numerical simulation of bending was compared with tensile true stress-strain diagram. Results show very good correlation between hardness, true strain and martesite content. Therefore, one can conclude that by hardness measurement, it is possible to measure the level of equivalent plastic strain until ultimate tensile stress as a linear correlation between hardness, true strain and martesite content.

    This work presents the results of a low-energy nitrogen ion implantation of AISI 304 type stainless steel (SS) at a moderate temperature of about 500° C. The nitrogen ions are extracted from a Kauffman-type ion source at an energy of 30 keV, and ion current density of 100 A cm-2. Nitrogen ion concentration of 6 × 1017, 8 × 1017 and 1018 ions cm-2, were selected for our study. The X-ray diffraction results show the formation of CrN polycrystalline phase after nitrogen bombardment and a change of crystallinity due to the change in nitrogen ion concentration. The secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) results show the formation of CrN phases too. Corrosion test has shown that corrosion resistance is enhanced by increasing nitrogen ion concentration.

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Low and high-cycle fatigue life regimes are well studied and are relatively well understood. However, recent fatigue studies on steels have shown that fatigue failures can occur at low amplitudes even below the conventional fatigue limit in the ultra-high-cycle fatigue range (life higher than 107 cycles. Fatigue life in the regime of 106 to 108 cycles-to-failure in terms of the influence of manufacturing processes on fatigue strength is examined. Specifically, the influence of surface roughness of turned surfaces of AISI 4140 steel specimens on fatigue strength in the giga cycle or ultra-high-cycle fatigue range is evaluated. The fatigue experiments were carried out at room temperature, with zero mean stress, on a rotating-bending fatigue testing machine of the constant bending moment type. The fatigue strength of the specimens were determined using the staircase (or up-and-down method.

  11. An investigation of the aseptic loosening of an AISI 316L stainless steel hip prosthesis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The total replacement of joints by the implantation of permanently indwelling prosthetic components has been one of the major successes of modern surgery in terms of relieving pain and correcting deformity. However, the aseptic loosening of a prosthetic-joint component is the most common reason for joint-revision surgery. Furthermore, it is thought that wear particles are one of the major contributors to the development and perpetuation of aseptic loosening. The aim of the present study was to identify the factors related to the aseptic loosening of an AISI 316L stainless steel total hip prosthesis. The stem was evaluated by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, with polished and rough regions being analyzed in order to establish the differences in the chemical compositions of both regions. Specific areas were examined using scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and light microscopy.

    Full Text Available It is utilized increasingly to use adhesive bonding in automotive industry to join structural components of metallic materials. The aim of this experimental study is to extend the information available to the automotive design engineer and contribute the better understanding of how the various geometrical shaped of steel parts affect the adhesive bonding. In this study, different types of lap joints, such as butt, step butt, scarf, tubular lap, were used to determine the mechanical strength of SAE/AISI 1350 steel. It has been observed that the cylindrical geometries can be subject to more stress compared to square specimens generally and the geometries with both tensile and shear stress can stand more stress per unit compared with the specimens with only tensile stress.

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available This study examined the microstructure and hardness of as-received and nitrided AISI 420 martensitic stainless steels. High temperature gas nitriding was employed to treat the steels at 1200°C for one hour and four hours using nitrogen gas, followed by furnace cooled. Chromium nitride and iron nitride were formed and concentrated at the outmost surface area of the steels since this region contained the highest concentration of nitrogen. The grain size enlarged at the interior region of the nitrided steels due to nitriding at temperature above the recrystallization temperature of the steel and followed by slow cooling. The nitrided steels produced higher surface hardness compared to as-received steel due to the presence of nitrogen and the precipitation of nitrides. Harder steel was produced when nitriding at four hours compared to one hour since more nitrogen permeated into the steel.

    In order to investigate the different Cr-N formation characteristics of plasma nitrided hard Cr coatings, Cr was electrodeposited on AISI 1010 steel and plasma nitrided at 600, 700 and 800 C for 3 h, 5 h and 7 h, respectively. Phase analyses of resulting Cr-N phases and grain size of Cr layer before and after nitriding process were calculated by X-ray diffraction analysis. Structure of nitride layer and its thickness were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy micrographs. The micrographs indicated that samples consisted of three distinctive layers. In order to distinguish these layers, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDX) analysis were used as well as elemental distribution versus depth was plotted. The Cr-N diffusion was investigated by layer thickness measurements, and diffusion coefficient as well as activation energies were calculated.

    Properties of steel can be enhanced by surface treatments such as coating. In some cases, further treatments such as nitriding can also be used in order to get even better results. In order to investigate the properties of nitride layer on hard Cr coated AISI 1010 steel, substrates were electroplated to form hard Cr coatings. Then hard Cr coatings were plasma nitrided at 700 C for 3 h, 5 h and 7 h and nitride phases on the coatings were investigated by X-ray diffraction analysis. The layer thickness and surface properties of nitride films were investigated by scanning electron microscopy. The hardness and adhesion properties of Cr-N phases were examined using nano indentation and Daimler-Benz Rockwell C adhesion tests. The highest measured hardness was 24.1 GPa and all the three samples exhibited poor adhesion.

    Experiments were conducted to assess the impact of dual-beam laser welding on the cooling rates, and thus microstructure and hardness, of weldments. Temperature measurements were continuously recorded using K-type thermocouples. The results indicate that dual-beam laser welding reduces the hardness of a weldment when compared to the case of single-beam laser welding. For example, the hardness of the hot-rolled AISI 4140 steel used was about 283 HB before laser welding. After laser welding with a power of 800 W and a welding speed of 10 mm/s, the hardness became 552 HB; but with a preheating power of 800 W and an interbeam spacing of 10 mm, the hardness reduced to 477 HB for the same welding speed. The impacts of minor heat source power, welding speed and interbeam spacing on weldment hardness and weld shape for both preheating and postheating cases are discussed.

    2002-02-01

    The stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of AISI 321 stainless steel in acidic chloride solution was studied by slow strain rate (SSR) technique and fracture mechanics method. The fractured surface was characterized by cleavage fracture. In order to clarify the SCC mechanism, the effects of inhibitor KI on SCC behaviour were also included in this paper. A study showed that the inhibition effects of KI on SCC were mainly attributed to the anodic reaction of the corrosion process. The results of strain distribution in front of the crack tip of the fatigue pre-cracked plate specimens in air, in the blank solution (acidic chloride solution without inhibitor KI) and in the solution added with KI measured by speckle interferometry (SPI) support the unified mechanism of SCC and corrosion fatigue cracking (CFC).

    Full Text Available Hard coatings such as titanium nitride (TiN and chromium nitride (CrN are widely used in cutting and forming tools against wear and corrosion. In the present study, hard coating films were deposited onto AISI 1070 steels by a cathodic arc evaporation plating (CAVP technique. These samples were subjected to wear in a conventional lathe for investigating the tribological behaviour of coating structure, and prenitrided subsurface composition was characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM, line scan analyses and X-ray diffraction (XRD. The wear properties of TiN- and CrNcoated samples were determined using an on-line monitoring system. The results show that TiN-coated samples demonstrate higher wear resistance than CrN-coated samples.

    1982-09-01

    Transmission electron microscopy was employed to study the substructure of AISI 304 stainless steel tested at 482, 593, and 650 °C in low-cycle fatigue with various hold times. Total strains investigated ranged from 0.5 to 2.0 pct, strain rates of 4 E-03 and 4 E-05 s-1. The cell size was found to be inversely related to the relaxed tensile saturation stress, but with different constants of proportionality for the two strain rates. At the lower strain rate, substructures tended to resemble those produced by pure creep. A modified work-hardening theory was used to relate the peak saturation stress to both plastic strain and cell size.

  1. Surface effects induced by cathodic hydrogenation in type AISI 304 stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Cathodic hydrogen charging of type AISI 304 stainless steel modified its austenitic structure, giving rise to the formation of two new martensitic phases and the appearance of cracks, in most cases delayed. As electrolyte a 1 N H2 S O4 solution containing As2 O3 was employed. The cathodic hydrogenation was carries out at room temperature. The transformed phases were identified with black and white and coloured metallographic techniques, as well as by X-ray diffraction. The effect of cathodic hydrogenation in samples uniaxially tensile tested with constant nominal strain rate was investigated. It was concluded that the number of cracks per unit surface area changes with hydrogenation conditions and that hydrogen should be present for the embrittlement to occur. (author)

    Ghazali, M. J.; Pauzi, A. A.; Azhari, C. H.; Ghani, J. A.; Sulong, A. B.; Mustafa, R.

    A slurry immersion technique of alumina coatings was carried out on several AISI 316 L stainless steels using two types of binding agents; commercial starch and Sarawakian starch (sago), which were also mixed with polyvinylchloride (PVA) for strengthening purposes. The sintering temperatures in this work were varied from 500 to 1000°C. Prior to sintering process, all stainless steels were metallographically ground and polished to approximately 0.6 µm of average roughness. Detailed characterisations on the sintered specimens were carried out with the aid of the secondary electron microscopy (SEM), microhardness and a profilometer. The results revealed that coated steels using sago binder showed improved adhesion and homogenous microstructures with greater hardness of 2642 HV than those found in coated steel with commercial starch after sintering process.

    Hot rolled and annealed AISI 1050 steel cylindrical coupons were flow formed at different levels of deformation (66% and 90% wall thickness reduction). TEM studies revealed development of ultra fine (sub) grain cell structure due to severe plastic deformation. The transverse subgrain size changed from 10 m (beginning) to 300nm (66% deformation) to 40nm (90% deformation). EBSD study revealed decreased recrystallization fraction at 90% deformation compared with 66% deformation due to orientation pinning from preferred orientation along {002} planes. No evidence of dislocation pinning or cracking was observed on any samples. The aim of the present work is to study the deformation behaviour and microstructural evolution during conventional flow forming process. The study also sheds light on the strengthening behaviour and structural changes during severe straining.

    It has been investigated the effect of nitridation time on the surface hardness of medium carbon steels (AISI 1045). Parameters determining to the results were flow rate of the nitrogen gas, temperature and time. In this experiments, sample having diameter of 15 mm, thick 2 mm placed in tube of glass with diameter 35 mm heated 550 oC, flow rate and temperature were kept constants, 100 cc/minutes and 550 oC respectively, while the time were varied from 5, 10, 20 and 30 hours. It was found, that for the nitridation time of 5, 10, 20, and 30 hours, the surface hardness increased from 145 VHN to, 23.7, 296.8, 382.4 and 426.1 VHN, respectively. (author)

  6. Irradiation creep in bending of cold-worked AISI 316 stainless steel at low neutron fluence

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The results from the first and second interim examinations of a test to measure irradiation creep in bending of 20 percent cold-worked AISI 316 stainless steel are presented. These low-fluence results indicate that irradiation creep in bending exhibits a larger primary creep component of the total strain as compared with creep in biaxial pressurized tubes of the same heat of material, but the secondary creep rates in the two cases appear to be similar. The data also indicate that the bending strains have a linear fluence and stress dependency, and strains measured on beams fabricated parallel to and transverse to the direction of cold work are similar, indicating that material texture anisotropy does not effect irradiation creep in bending. 6 refs

    Full Text Available In this investigation, the corrosion resistance of AISI 316 SS filters prepared with powders in the size ranges 74-44 µm and 210-105 µm and compacted with pressures of 300 MPa and 400 MPa has been evaluated in naturally aerated 0.5 M H2SO4 solution at 25 °C. Weight loss of filters manufactured with compacting pressure of 400 MPa were significantly higher than that of filters compacted at 300 MPa. The filter compacted at 400 MPa had higher carbon and nitrogen contents compared to those compacted at 300 MPa. The former also had chromium rich precipitates and oxides in the grain boundaries. The pores in filters compacted at 400 MPa were smaller than in filters compacted at 300 MPa. Smaller pores favor the formation of concentration cells and consequently, increased crevice corrosion.

The progress of the transformation was also followed with electrical resistance measurements, optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Both MBN and resistivity measurements showed a change near 230 K during cooling, corresponding to the Ms temperature, as compared with 245 K, estimated with Andrews empirical equation applied to the austenite composition calculated using ThermoCalc.

  9. Application of radionuclide techniques on AISI 316 stainless steel wear measurements

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the last years a wide development in the area of surfaces treatment was observed in order to reduce the wear phenomena in machine components, motors, tools. In this work, sheets of stainless AISI 316 with thickness of 12,5 μm, which simulates successive and equal cuts in a block, were irradiated with 9 MeV protons at the CV-28 cyclotron. The induced activity in each foil was measured with a Ge(Li) detector, and the variation of this activity, as function of irradiated depth, was followed. In this activation with protons nominated thin layer activation has some advantages when compared to neutron activation. In the case the activation of foils of stainless steel 316 the peaks related to 52 Mn, 56 Co, 57 Co and 58 Co were clearly discriminated in the spectrum and this fact is used to establish a calibration curve for wear measurements.

    The three dimensional ion implantation technology (3DII) is one of the methods of improving the tribological characteristics and resistance to hydrogen embrittlement processes in metals. In this report, some results concerning the resistance effect of nitrogen ion implantation to oxidation of the sample, made of AISI/SAE 1020 steel, are given. The nitrogen ions were implanted in the discharge chamber of the JUPITER reactor. Both the treated and untreated samples were tested through potential-static measurements, which permitted to determine the corrosion current, the slopes that characterise the braking level of anode and cathode reactions. The polarization resistance near the corrosion potential is calculated. The results of the study encourage to consider the nitrogen ion implantation in high voltage and low pressure discharges as one of the methods of anticorrosive protection which do not change the geometric configuration of the treated steel pieces.

  12. Stress corrosion cracking of stainless steel AISI 316L HAZ in PWR nuclear reactor environment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In pressurized water reactors (PWRs), low alloy carbon steels and stainless steel are widely used in the primary water circuits. In most cases, Ni alloys are used to joint these materials and form dissimilar welds. These alloys are known to accommodate the differences in composition and thermal expansion of the two materials. Stress corrosion cracking of metals and alloys is caused by synergistic effects of environment, material condition and stress. Over the last thirty years, CST has been observed in dissimilar metal welds. This study presents a comparative work between the CST in the HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) of the AISI 316L in two different temperatures (303 deg C and 325 deg C). The susceptibility to stress corrosion cracking was assessed using the slow strain rate tensile (SSRT) test. The results of the SSRT tests indicated that CST is a thermally-activated mechanism and that brittle fracture caused by the corrosion process was observed at 325 deg C). (author)

  13. Corrosion and low-cycle fatigue properties of AISI 316L in flowing Pb-17Li

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Corrosion and low-cycle fatigue (LCF) tests were performed on AISI 316L steel specimens in a flowing lithium lead environment. The LCF and corrosion tests were conducted simultaneously in the ''LIFUS 2'' forced convection loop, at a temperature of 723 K and a flow velocity of approximately 0.01 m/s. The LCF tests, which had a strain amplitude ranging from 0.008 to 0.016, were compared with reference tests performed in an inert argon atmosphere. The results show that liquid Pb-17Li has no detrimental effect on the LCF behaviour of 316L at the test temperature of 723 K. The corrosion tests extended from 650 to 1600 h with intermediate steps. Metallographic and SEM-EDAX analyses indicated the presence of an irregular porous ferritic layer. The results are discussed in terms of ferrite growth rate and the effect of corrosion phenomena on LCF behaviour. ((orig.))

    Full Text Available Two ultrahigh carbon steels containing 1.3 and 1.5 pet carbon have been tested for their plane-strain (Chevron-notch fracture toughness using Barker tests. The microstructure of these two materials consisted of fine carbides dispersed in a ferrite matrix. Fracture toughness of UHC-1.3 C was twice that of UHC-1.5 C. This result can be readily explained by means of the difference in size of the carbide particles found in each microstructure. The crack growth mechanism consisted of ductile tearing at the notch tip region followed by nucleation of a brittle crack at carbides. Crack propagation in the UHC-1.3 C specimen occurred unstably and smooth crack growth behavior was observed in UHC-1.5 C. The difference in crack growth behavior was attributed to the elastic energy stored in the grips, which was higher for the UHC-1.3 C test than for the UHC-1.5 C test.

    Se ha analizado la tenacidad a la fractura de dos aceros de ultraalto contenido en carbono, UAC, conteniendo 1,3% C y 1,5% C, los cuales poseían una microestructura de carburos esferoidales finos en una matriz de ferrita. Se ha empleado el ensayo Barker para determinar el comportamiento a fractura. La tenacidad obtenida en el acero UAC-1,3 C fue doble que la del acero UAC-1,5 C. Esto se explica a partir del tamaño de los carburos presentes en cada microestructura. El mecanismo de fractura en ambos aceros consiste, inicialmente, en desgarramiento dúctil de la zona de la punta de la entalla seguido de propagación frágil de una grieta nucleada en los carburos. La propagación de la grieta en el acero UAC-1,5 C se produjo de manera estable, mientras que en el acero UAC-1,3 C la grieta se propagó catastróficamente. La diferencia de comportamientos en el crecimiento de la grieta se atribuye a la mayor energía elástica acumulada por la mordaza para el acero UAC-1,3 C que para el acero UAC-1,5 C.

    TiN, TiAlN and TiAlSiN hard coatings were deposited onto AISI H13 tool steel by cathodic arc plasma method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis confirmed that incorporation of Al and Si into TiN led to refinement of microstructure. From the results of potentiodynamic polarization test and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) test conducted in an aerated 3.5% NaCl solution, the TiAlSiN film showed the best corrosion resistance with the lowest corrosion current density and porosity, the highest protective efficiency and total resistance (pore resistance plus charge transfer resistance)

    Full Text Available An investigation has been conducted in order to determine the effect of both the metallic transfer mode (pulsed arc or short circuit and the O2 content in the Ar/O2 gas mixture, of the gas-metal arc welding process (GMAW, on the fatigue life under uniaxial conditions of welded joints of 316L stainless steel. It has been concluded that the mixture of the protective gases employed in the process could have an important influence on the fatigue life of the welded joints of such steel in two different ways. Firstly, through the modification of the radius of curvature at the joint between the welding toe and the base metal and, secondly, through a more pronounced degree of oxidation of the alloying elements induced by a higher O2 content in the mixture. As far as the metallic transfer mode is concerned, it has been determined that the welded joints obtained under a pulsed arc mode show a greater fatigue life in comparison with the joints obtained under short circuit for both gas mixtures.

    Gas purging is necessary to provide a high quality of stainless steel pipe welding in order to prevent oxidation of the weld zone inside the pipe. AISI 321 stabilized austenitic stainless steel pipes commonly preferred in refinery applications have been welded by the TIG welding process both with and without the use of purging gas. As purging gases, Ar, N{sub 2}, Ar + N{sub 2} and N{sub 2} + 10% H{sub 2} were used, respectively. The aim of this investigation is to detect the effect of purging gas on the weld joint properties such as microstructure, corrosion, strength and impact toughness. Macro sections and microstructures of the welds were investigated. Chemical composition analysis to obtain the nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen content of the weld root was done by Leco analysis. Ferrite content of the beads including root and cap passes were measured by a ferritscope. Vickers hardness (HV10) values were obtained. Intergranular and pitting corrosion tests were applied to determine the corrosion resistance of all welds. Type of the purging gas affected pitting corrosion properties as well as the ferrite content and nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen contents at the roots of the welds. Any hot cracking problems are not predicted as the weld still solidifies with ferrite in the primary phase as confirmed by microstructural and ferrite content analysis. Mechanical testing showed no significant change according to the purge gas. AISI 321 steel and 347 consumable compositions would permit use of nitrogen rich gases for root shielding without a risk of hot cracking.

    Full Text Available When AISI 316L stainless steels are submitted to the nitriding process at temperatures lower than 450 °C, a high nitrogen content expanded austenite phase is formed, which shows higher hardness and higher pitting corrosion resistance compared to the untreated material. As a result, this material becomes adequate for biomedical application. The conditions of the nitriding technique, such as gas mixture, pressure, time and temperature, play an important role in some properties of the modified layer, including: thickness, hardness and N concentration along the layer. This paper explores a set of six samples of AISI 316L, nitrided at different times and temperatures, whose properties show important differences. The aim of this research is to investigate the correlation between the nitrided layer thickness (in the range of 0.77 to 11 µm with both X-ray patterns characteristics and hardness measurements, which used two distinct loads. The results of this study show that: whereas the 3.6 gf load was suitable to measure the real hardness for four of the nitrided layers showing thickness ≥ 2.9 µm, the 50 gf load measured a substrate contribution, probably even for the highest thickness, 11 µm. Moreover, analyzing different reflections of the X-ray patterns showed evidence of the clear consistency between the X-Ray depths and the nitrided layer thicknesses: if the layer thickness is lower than the penetration depth of X-rays, two phases (austenite and expanded substrate are present. If the layer thickness is higher, only the austenite is observed. Finally, concerning the citotoxicity property, all the samples, nitrided or not, were approved in the test for biocompatibility, indicating their potential use for biomedical applications.

    Many experimental investigations reveal that it is very difficult to have a completely martensitic structure by any hardening process. Some amount of austenite is generally present in the hardened steel. This austenite existing along with martensite is normally referred as the retained austenite. The presence of retained austenite greatly reduces the mechanical properties and such steels do not develop maximum hardness even after cooling at rates higher than the critical cooling rates.Strength can be improved in hardened steels containing retained austenite by a process known as cryogenic quenching.Untransformed austenite is converted into martensite by this treatment. This conversion of retained austenite into martensite results in increased hardness, wear resistance and dimensional stability of steel. Wear can be defined as the progressive loss of materials from the operating surface of a body occurring as a result of relative motion at the surface. Hardness, load,speed, surface roughness, temperature are the major factors which influences wear. Many studies on wear indicate that increasing hardness decreases the wear of a material. With this in mind, to study the surface wear on a surface modified(Cryogenic treated) steel material an attempt has been made in this paper. In this study as a Part -I Hardening was carried out on carbon tool steel (AISI 1095) of different L/D ratio with conventional quenchants like purified water, aqueous solution and Hot mineral oil. As a Part -Ⅱ hardening was followed by quenching was carried out as said in Part- I and the hardened specimen were quenched in liquid Nitrogen which is at sub zero condition. The specimens were tested for its microstructure, hardness and wear loss. The results were compared and analyzed. The alloying elements increases the content of retained austenite hence the material used was AISI1095 (Carbon 0.9%, Si 0.2%, Mn0.4% and the rest Iron)

    Traditional plasma nitriding treatments using temperatures ranging from approximately 650 to 730 K can improve wear, corrosion resistance and surface hardness on stainless steels. The nitrided layer consists of some iron nitrides: the cubic {gamma}{sup Prime} phase (Fe{sub 4}N), the hexagonal phase {epsilon} (Fe{sub 2 - 3}N) and a nitrogen supersatured solid phase {gamma}{sub N}. An empirical model is proposed to explain the corrosion resistance of AISI 316L and ASTM F138 nitrided samples based on Moessbauer Spectroscopy results: the larger the ratio between {epsilon} and {gamma}{sup Prime} phase fractions of the sample, the better its resistance corrosion is. In this work, this model is examined using some new results of AISI 316L samples, nitrided under the same previous conditions of gas composition and temperature, but at different pressure, for 3, 4 and 5 h. The sample nitrided for 4 h, whose value for {epsilon}/{gamma}{sup Prime} is maximum (= 0.73), shows a slightly better response than the other two samples, nitrided for 5 and 3 h ({epsilon}/{gamma}{sup Prime} = 0.72 and 0.59, respectively). Moreover, these samples show very similar behavior. Therefore, this set of samples was not suitable to test the empirical model. However, the comparison between the present results of potentiodynamic polarization curves and those obtained previously at 4 and 4.5 torr, could indicated that the corrosion resistance of the sample which only presents the {gamma}{sub N} phase was the worst of them. Moreover, the empirical model seems not to be ready to explain the response to corrosion and it should be improved including the {gamma}{sub N} phase.

    Full Text Available Purpose: the purpose of the work is to compare the wear resistance, in dry and lubricated conditions, of AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel samples that were plasma nitrided or nitrocarburized at 450°C for 5 and 10 h, respectively.Design/methodology/approach: Hardness and wear resistance of austenitic stainless steel can be increased substantially, without losing corrosion resistance, by plasma nitriding or nitrocarburizing surface treatments. In this work, AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel was plasma nitrided and nitrocarburized at 450°C, for 5 and 10 h respectively.Findings: The obtained layers were characterized by optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, microhardness and micro-wear tests in dry and lubricated conditions. Optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis demonstrated that the nitrided layer is homogeneous and primarily composed of nitrogen rich expanded austenite with a thickness of about 15 µm. Nitrocarburized samples exhibited an external layer of chromium and iron compounds and a sub-layer of expanded austenite with a total thickness of 45 µm. Microhardness profiles showed that the hardness near to the surface was close to 1100 HV for nitriding and 1300 HV for nitrocarburizing. Plasma nitrided and nitrocarburized layers exhibited substantial wear reduction in dry and lubricated test conditions. The use of a lubricant oil reduces wear by a factor of approximately 200 compared to the dry test results.Research limitations/implications: The plasma nitrided layer yielded the best wear performance in both dry and lubricated conditions.Originality/value: Plasma nitriding resulted in the best wear performance when compared with nitrocarburizing in dry and lubricated sliding which is probably due to reduced layer fragility.

  8. Microstructure and mechanical properties of friction stir processed AISI 316L stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: • FSP can be used to produce bulk ultrafine grained structures in AISI 316L SS. • The main mechanism for grain structure refinement of FSP 316L SS is DDRX. • However, some evidences of CDRX and SRX were also observed. • The material flow was found to be near simple shear deformation (A/A‾ and C). • FSP samples have an enhanced hardness and strength compared with the base metal. - Abstract: Friction stir processing was used to refine the grain structure in 2 mm thick AISI 316L stainless steel sheets, with a pinless tool, at a constant traverse speed of 63 mm/min and relatively low rotational speeds of 200 and 315 rpm. Depending on the processing conditions, the initial grain size of 14.8 μm in the base metal was subsequently decreased to 0.8–2.2 μm in the processed areas. The microstructural characterizations by orientation imaging and transmission electron microscopy revealed that the grain structure evolution in the stir zone is primarily dominated by discontinuous dynamic recrystallization. The material flow was found to be near simple shear deformation and the developed textures were composed of a mixture of A/A‾ and C components of ideal simple shear textures. The mechanical properties were also evaluated by the longitudinal tensile tests and microhardness measurements. The obtained results showed that, despite a 50% decrease in ductility, the highest yield and ultimate tensile strength of the friction stir processed samples are respectively about 1.6 and 1.2 times higher than those of the base metal. In good agreement with the tensile properties, the increased hardness of the stir zone was attributed to the grain structure refinement

  9. Action of an aerobic hydrogenotroph bacteria isolated from ultrapure water systems on AISI 304 stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Several microbial studies have been recently performed in nuclear power stations. These studies concerned essentially the formation of bio-films on submerged metal coupons. Heterotrophic micro-organisms have been found in bulk water of nuclear fuel storage basins but the in situ nutrient sources for bacterial development in such highly oligo-trophic water was unknown. In nuclear environments, radiations lead to the production of molecular hydrogen, hydrogen peroxide and some radicals (OH, O2-) by radiolysis of water or embedding matrices. Bacterial oxidation of molecular H2 commonly occurs in nature, as molecular hydrogen represents a high-energy reductant. We investigated the microbiology of a ultra-pure water basin containing irradiating waste. The initial aim of this study was to determine if autotrophic bacterial growth was possible in this basin. A major bacteria was isolated (Ralstonia sp. GGLH002) which was able to grow autotrophically with hydrogen as the electron donor and oxygen as the electron acceptor, and heterotrophically with organic nutrients. Its hydrogenase activity has been characterized. We focused then our study on the effects of this strain on 304L AISI stainless steel depending on the nutrient source used for bacterial development, e.g hydrogen or organics. In conclusion, the mechanism of passivation enhanced by Ralstonia sp. GGLH002 on AISI 304L SS still remains unknown. Several techniques could give substantial information, including XPS and polarization curves. It seems for the moment that the major bacteria inhabiting an oxic environment containing hydrogen due to radiolysis is not aggressive to stainless steel in conditions near from its environment. Further investigations are needed to test this hypothesis, including a study of the molecular diversity of the bacteria using culture-independent techniques, as cultivatable bacterial populations represent in general only a fraction of the total bacteria.

  10. Dislocation structure evolution and its effects on cyclic deformation response of AISI 316L stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Research highlights: → The cyclic deformation response of AISI 316L steel is investigated at 20 deg. C. → The corresponding microstructure evolution is characterised by electron microscopy. → A 3D representation of dislocation evolution is proposed based on the observation. → The 3D representation gives a good explanation of the microstructure complexity. → The cyclic deformation response is discussed based on the microstructure evolution. - Abstract: The cyclic deformation response of an austenitic stainless steel is characterised in terms of its cyclic peak tensile stress properties by three stages of behaviour: a hardening stage followed by a softening stage, and finally a stable stress response stage. A series of tests have been performed and interrupted at selected numbers of cycles in the different stages of mechanical response. At each interruption point, specimens have been examined by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with different beam directions by means of the tilting function in order to investigate the formation and the development of dislocation structures from the as-received condition until the end of fatigue life. A new 3D representation of dislocation structure evolution during cyclic loading is proposed on the basis of the microstructural observations. The 3D representation provides a deeper insight into the development of dislocation structures in AISI 316L during low cycle fatigue loading at room temperature. By investigating the dislocation evolution, the study shows that the hardening response is mainly associated with an increase of total dislocation density, whereas the softening stage is a result of the formation of dislocation-free regions. Further development of the dislocation structure into a cellular structure is responsible for the stable stress response stage.

    High temperature gas nitriding performed on AISI 316L at the temperature of 1200°C. The microstructure of treated AISI 316L samples were observed to identify the formation of the microstructure of nitrided surface layer. The grain size of austenite tends to be enlarged when the nitriding time increases, but the austenite single phase structure is maintained even after the long-time solution nitriding. Using microhardness testing, the hardness values drop to the center of the samples. The incr...

    Full Text Available In this work different tests using electrolytic plasma (EP on thin wires of stainless steel AISI 302 in an inert solution were performed. Tensile tests were carried out in order to measure changes in the mechanical strength of the samples; moreover, both the morphological and microstructural changes also were evaluated. It was found that after 10 s of the application of EP, the samples surface was uniformly covered by nodules-like and craters similar to those found in the melting and cooling periods of EP. The results show a significant surface grain refinement, leading to crystalline arrangements with sizes less than 200 nm and also an increase in the samples tensile strength of at least 57 % respect to steel base.

    Ferritic stainless steels are ferromagnetic materials. This property does not allow their use in orthopedic prosthesis. Nevertheless, in some specific applications, this characteristic is very useful, such as, for fixing dental and facial prostheses by using magnetic attachments. In this study, the corrosion resistance and cytotoxicity of the AISI 444 ferritic stainless steel, with low nickel content, extra-low interstitial levels (C and N) and Ti and Nb stabilizers, were investigated for magnetic dental attachments application. The ISO 5832-1 (ASTM F-139) austenitic stainless steel and a commercial universal keeper for dental attachment (Neo-magnet System) were evaluated for comparison reasons. The first stainless steel is the most used metallic material for prostheses, and the second one, is a ferromagnetic keeper for dental prostheses (NeoM). In vitro cytotoxicity analysis was performed by the red neutral incorporation method. The results showed that the AISI 444 stainless steel is non cytotoxic. The corrosion resistance was studied by anodic polarization methods and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), in a saline phosphate buffered solution (PBS) at 37 °C. The electronic properties of the passive film formed on AISI 444 SS were evaluated by the Mott-Schottky approach. All tested materials showed passivity in the PBS medium and the passive oxide film presented a duplex nature. The highest susceptibility to pitting corrosion was associated to the NeoM SS. This steel was also associated to the highest dopant concentration. The comparatively low levels of chromium (nearly 12.5%) and molybdenum (0.3%) of NeoM relatively to the other studied stainless steels are the probable cause of its lower corrosion resistance. The NeoM chemical composition does not match that of the SUS444 standards. The AISI 444 SS pitting resistance was equivalent to the ISO 5832-1 pointing out that it is a potential candidate for replacement of commercial ferromagnetic alloys used

    AISI D2 tool steel has excellent wear resistance with high dimensional stability. This type of steel is suitable for making molds. This paper describes investigations into the effect of adding Ce/La on microstructure of AISI D2 type cold work tool steels obtained by means of optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) and image analyzer. The results showed that after modification with Ce/La, the morphology, size and distribution of M{sub 7}C{sub 3} carbides change greatly. The carbide network tends to break, and all carbides are refined and distributed homogeneously in the matrix, and also reduce the size of chromium carbides and increase the dissolution of carbides during heat treatment. The results of mechanical tests show that the toughness of the alloy increased about 75% without reducing the hardness of the alloy.

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available This study compares the effects of nitriding and carburizing processes applied to gears subjected to contact stresses below 1300 MPa. The manufacturing cost, as well the depth of hardened layer and the distortion produced by two processes are analyzed. AISI 4140 gears quenched, tempered, liquid and gas nitriding and AISI 8620 gears after liquid carburizing, quenching and tempering are analyzed. The dimensional control of the gears was carried out before and after heat and thermochemical treatments. It is concluded that liquid or gas nitriding processes are about 30% more economical than liquid carburizing an also they reduce the dimensional changes. By the other hand liquid carburizing achieves greater case depth. Liquid nitriding process presents the lowest cost, dimensional changes and case depth.

    Full Text Available This paper present mathematical model which developed to predict the nitrided layer thickness (case depth of gas nitrided and plasma nitrided austenitic stainless steel according to Fick’s first law for pure iron by adapting and manipulating the Hosseini’s model to fit the diffusion mechanism where nitrided structure formed by nitrided AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel. The mathematical model later tested against various actual gas nitriding and plasma nitriding experimental results with varying nitriding temperature and nitriding duration to see whether the model managed to successfully predict the nitrided layer thickness. This model predicted the coexistence of ε-Fe2-3N and γ΄-Fe4N under the present nitriding process parameters. After the validation process, it is proven that the mathematical model managed to predict the nitrided layer growth of the gas nitrided and plasma nitrided of AISI 316L SS up to high degree of accuracy.

    This paper analyses the causes of the premature failure of welded AISI 316L stainless steel (ss) pipes which formed part of a sea water cooling circuit. The service time of the pipes was 8 months. The laboratory tests carried out consisted of metallography tests, {delta}-ferrite determination, intergranular corrosion susceptibility, cyclic anodic polarization curves, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) and X-ray photo-electron spectroscopy (XPS). The study presents typical forms of microbial induced corrosion (MIC) in AISI 308L and 316L ss in contact with natural sea water. The research is completed with the performance of bacteriological tests which demonstrate that the bacteria which cause the localized corrosion are of the sulphate-reducing genus ``desulfovibrio`` and the sulphide-oxidizing genus ``thiocapsa``.

    Full Text Available Hard roller burnishing with a ball tool is a surface-finishing where a free-rotating tool rolls over the machined surface under high pressures and flattens the surface roughness peaks by cold work. In the present work, a new burnishing technique has been applied which enables both single and double ball burnishing process in site after turning without releasing the specimen. Sets of experiments are conducted to investigate the influence of burnishing force, feed, speed and number of tool passes on surface roughness of AISI 1018 Low Carbon Steel specimens. Burnishing results showed significant effectiveness of the new burnishing technique in the process. The results revealed that minimum surface roughness are obtained by applying the double ball burnishing process on AISI 1018 Low Carbon Steel specimens. Improvement in surface finish can be achieved in both single and double ball burnishing by increasing the number of burnishing tool passes. The results are presented in this paper.

  3. Corrosion behavior of plasma sprayed hydroxyapatite and hydroxyapatite-silicon oxide coatings on AISI 304 for biomedical application

    Full Text Available Doped lanthanum chromite-based ceramics are the most widely used interconnector material in solid fuel cells (SOFC since they exhibit significant electrical and thermal conductivity, substantial corrosion resistance and adequate mechanical strength at ambient and high temperatures. The disadvantage of this material is its high cost and poor ductility. The aim of this study is to determine the mechanical and oxidation behavior of a stainless steel (AISI 444 with a LaCrO3 deposition on its surface obtained through spray pyrolisis. Coated and pure AISI 444 materials were characterized by mechanical properties, oxidation behavior, X-ray diffraction and scanning electronic microscopy. Results indicated that the coated material displays better oxidation behavior in comparison to pure stainless steel, but no improvement in mechanical strength. Both materials indicate that deformation behavior depends on testing temperatures.

    Full Text Available Purpose: The study analyses influence of surface modification of Si:Ti on physical and chemical properties of samples made from AISI 316L steel in solution simulating blood-vascular system.Design/methodology/approach: Sol-gel layer was selected on the ground of data from literature. TEOS and TET made the ground for initial solution. Application of the layer on the surface of samples made of AISI 316L steel was preceded by mechanical working - grinding (Ra = 0.40 µm and mechanical polishing (Ra = 0.12 µm. Corrosion resistance tests were performed on the ground of registered anodic polarisation curves and Stern method. In order to evaluate phenomena that take place on the surface of the tested alloys EIS was also applied. The tests were performed in artificial blood plasma at the temperature of T = 37.0±1°C and pH = 7.0±0.2.Findings: Obtained results on the ground of voltammetric and impedance tests showed differentiated electrochemical properties of AISI 316L steel depending on the type of surface treatment. Practical implications: Suggested subject matter of the article supports development of entrepreneurship sector due to high social demand for this type of technologies and relatively easy way of putting obtained laboratory tests data into inductrial and clinical practice.Originality/value: Suggestion of proper variants of surface treatment with application of sol-gel method is meaningful in future perspective and it shall promote determination of technological conditions with precise parameters of creation of oxide layers on metallic implants made of AISI 316L steel that come into contact with blood.

    This study reports a detailed investigation of the microstructure and mechanical properties (wear resistance and tensile strength) of hardened and tempered AISI H13 tool steel substrate following laser cladding with AISI H13 tool steel powder in as-clad and after post-cladding conventional bulk isothermal tempering [at 823 K (550 °C) for 2 hours] heat treatment. Laser cladding was carried out on AISI H13 tool steel substrate using a 6 kW continuous wave diode laser coupled with fiber delivering an energy density of 133 J/mm2 and equipped with a co-axial powder feeding nozzle capable of feeding powder at the rate of 13.3 × 10-3 g/mm2. Laser clad zone comprises martensite, retained austenite, and carbides, and measures an average hardness of 600 to 650 VHN. Subsequent isothermal tempering converted the microstructure into one with tempered martensite and uniform dispersion of carbides with a hardness of 550 to 650 VHN. Interestingly, laser cladding introduced residual compressive stress of 670 ± 15 MPa, which reduces to 580 ± 20 MPa following isothermal tempering. Micro-tensile testing with specimens machined from the clad zone across or transverse to cladding direction showed high strength but failure in brittle mode. On the other hand, similar testing with samples sectioned from the clad zone parallel or longitudinal to the direction of laser cladding prior to and after post-cladding tempering recorded lower strength but ductile failure with 4.7 and 8 pct elongation, respectively. Wear resistance of the laser surface clad and post-cladding tempered samples (evaluated by fretting wear testing) registered superior performance as compared to that of conventional hardened and tempered AISI H13 tool steel.

    AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel is a popularly used grade in the various fields of manufacturing because of its high ductility, high durability and excellent corrosion resistance. High work hardening, low heat conductivity and high built up edge (BUE) formation made this as difficult-to- machine material. Poor surface quality and rapid tool wear are the common problems encountered while machining it. In the present work, an attempt has been made to explore the influence of machining para...

    The present study is part of a project on the surface modification of AISI 316 stainless steel using various forms of NiTi for enhancing cavitation erosion resistance. In this study, NiTi powder was preplaced on the AISI 316L substrate and melted with a high-power CW Nd:YAG laser. With appropriate laser processing parameters, an alloyed layer of a few hundred micrometers thick was formed and fusion bonded to the substrate without the formation of a brittle interface. EDS analysis showed that the layer contained Fe as the major constituent element while the XRD patterns of the surface showed an austenitic structure, similar to that of 316 stainless steel. The cavitation erosion resistance of the modified layer (316-NiTi-Laser) could reach about 29 times that of AISI 316L stainless steel. The improvement could be attributed to a much higher surface hardness and elasticity as revealed by instrumented nanoindentation tests. Among various types of samples, the cavitation erosion resistance was ranked in descending order as: NiTi plate > 316-NiTi-Laser > 316-NiTi-TIG > AISI 316L, where 316-NiTi-TIG stands for samples surfaced with the tungsten inert gas (TIG) process using NiTi wire. Though the laser-surfaced samples and the TIG-surfaced samples had similar indentation properties, the former exhibited a higher erosion resistance mainly because of a more homogeneous alloyed layer with much less defects. In both the laser-surfaced and TIG-surfaced samples, the superelastic behavior typical of austenitic NiTi was only partially retained and the superior cavitation erosion resistance was thus still not fully attained.

    Full Text Available Currently, carb counting is a nutritional strategy that has allowed a greater adherence and dietary management of patients with diabetes mellitus, because it allows the consumption of a greater variety of foods. However, also requires greater adherence by the patient to maintain an adequate blood glucose monitoring and the ability to determine the amount of carbohydrates in the meals. Since diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease, a more flexible and varied diet will allow better monitoring, taking into account their glycemic control in long-term. The objective of this study was to examine the applicability of this method to a less restrictive diet and nutritionally adequate for the patient with diabetes mellitus, as well an individual dietary adjustment that is needed to better glycemic control, identifying nutritional advantages and disadvantages of the method.En la actualidad, el contaje del contenido de hidratos de carbono es una estrategia de nutrición que ha permitido mayor adherencia al tratamiento dietético del paciente con diabetes mellitus ya que permite el consumo de una mayor diversidad de comidas. Sin embargo, también se hace necesario una mayor implicación por parte del paciente para mantener una adecuada monitorización de su glucemia, así como la capacidad para determinar la cantidad de hidratos de carbono en las ingestas. Dado que el diabetes mellitus es una enfermedad crónica, una dieta más flexible y variada permitirá un mejor seguimiento, teniendo en cuenta a su vez el control glucémico a largo plazo. El objetivo del estudio fue revisar la aplicabilidad de este método para formular una dieta menos restrictiva y nutricionalmente adecuada para el paciente con diabetes mellitus, así como el ajuste dietético individual que se hace necesario para el mejor control glucémico, identificando ventajas y desventajas nutricionales del método.

  8. Plasma nitriding process by direct current glow discharge at low temperature increasing the thermal diffusivity of AISI 304 stainless steel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This work reports for the first time on the use of the open photoacoustic cell technique operating at very low frequencies and at room temperature to experimentally determine the thermal diffusivity parameter of commercial AISI304 stainless steel and AISI304 stainless steel nitrided samples. Complementary measurements of X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy were also performed. The results show that in standard AISI 304 stainless steel samples the thermal diffusivity is (4.0 ± 0.3) × 10−6 m2/s. After the nitriding process, the thermal diffusivity increases to the value (7.1 ± 0.5) × 10−6 m2/s. The results are being associated to the diffusion process of nitrogen into the surface of the sample. Carrying out subsequent thermal treatment at 500 °C, the thermal diffusivity increases up to (12.0 ± 2) × 10−6 m2/s. Now the observed growing in the thermal diffusivity must be related to the change in the phases contained in the nitrided layer.

  9. A preliminary study of laser cladding of AISI 316 stainless steel using preplaced NiTi wire

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    NiTi wire of diameter 1 mm was preplaced on AISI 316 stainless steel samples by using a binder. Melting of the NiTi wire to form a clad track on the steel substrate was achieved by means of a high-power CW Nd:YAG laser using different processing parameters. The geometry and microstructure of the clad deposit were studied by optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), respectively. The hardness and compositional profiles along the depth of the deposit were acquired by microhardness testing and energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), respectively. The elastic behavior of the deposit was analyzed using nanoindentation, and compared with that of the NiTi wire. The dilution of the NiTi clad by the substrate material beneath was substantial in single clad tracks, but could be successively reduced in multiple clad layers. A strong fusion bonding with tough interface could be obtained as evidenced by the integrity of Vickers indentations in the interfacial region. In comparison with the NiTi cladding on AISI 316 using the tungsten inert gas (TIG) process, the laser process was capable of producing a much less defective cladding with a more homogeneous microstructure, which is an essential cladding quality with respect to cavitation erosion and corrosion resistance. Thus, the present preliminary study shows that laser cladding using preplaced wire is a feasible method to obtain a thick and homogeneous NiTi-based alloy layer on AISI 316 stainless steel substrate

  13. Surface modifications of AISI 1045 steel created by high intensity 1064 and 532 nm picosecond Nd:YAG laser pulses

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Interaction of Nd:YAG laser, operating at 1064 or 532 nm wavelength and a pulse duration of 40 ps, with AISI 1045 steel was studied. Surface damage thresholds were estimated to be 0.30 and 0.16 J/cm2 at the wavelengths of 1064 and 532 nm, respectively. The steel surface modification was studied at the laser energy density of 10.3 J/cm2 (at 1064 nm) and 5.4 J/cm2 (at 532 nm). The energy absorbed from Nd:YAG laser beam is partially converted to thermal energy, which generates a series of effects, such as melting, vaporization of the molten material, shock waves, etc. The following AISI 1045 steel surface morphological changes and processes were observed: (i) both laser wavelengths cause damage of the steel in the central zone of irradiated area; (ii) appearance of a hydrodynamic feature in the form of resolidified droplets of the material in the surrounding outer zone with 1064 nm laser wavelength; (iii) appearance of periodic surface structures, at micro- and nano-level, with the 532 nm wavelength and, (iv) development of plasma in front of the target. Generally, interaction of laser beam with the AISI 1045 steel (at 1064 and 532 nm) results in a near-instantaneous creation of damage, meaning that large steel surfaces can be processed in short time.

    The effects of AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel, tested in untreated state or subjected to glow-discharge nitriding (at 10 or 20 hPa) and nitriding + post-oxidizing treatments, on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) and on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were evaluated. All the treated samples showed a better corrosion resistance in PBS and higher surface hardness in comparison with the untreated alloy. In HUVEC put in contact for 72 h with the sample types, proliferation and apoptosis decreased and increased, respectively, in the presence of the nitrided + post-oxidized samples, while only slight differences in cytokine (TNF-alpha, IL-6, and TGF-beta1) release were registered. Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) increased in HUVEC incubated with all the treated samples, while vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and E-selectin increased in the presence of all the sample types. PBMC incubated for 48 h with the samples showed a decrease in proliferation and an increase in apoptosis in the presence of the untreated samples and the nitrided + post-oxidized ones. All the sample types induced a remarkable increase in TNF-alpha and IL-6 release in PBMC culture medium, while only the untreated sample and the nitrided at 10 hPa induced an increase in ICAM-1 expression. In HUVEC cocultured with PBMC, previously put in contact with the treated AISI 316L samples, increased levels of ICAM-1 were detected. In HUVEC coincubated with the culture medium of PBMC, previously put in contact with the samples under study, a noteworthy increase in ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin levels was always registered, with the exception of VCAM-1, which was not affected by the untreated sample. In conclusion, even if the treated samples do not show a marked increase in biocompatibility in comparison with the untreated alloy, their higher corrosion resistance may suggest a better performance as the contact with physiological environment becomes longer.

Este coeficiente de endurecimiento se aplica en la ecuación de Hollomon para determinar el nuevo valor de tensión de fluencia y aplicarlo para el cálculo del trabajo mínimo a realizar en un proceso de deformación en frío empleando rodillo simple.   Palabras clave: Deformación Plástica; tensión; deformación; endurecimiento.The objective of the work is to determine the behavior of the hardening coefficient n by the equation of Hollomon, in cylindrical samples of steel AISI 1045, those which, after the deformed, were subjected to traction rehearsals. He used an experiment design where are kept in mind the revolution number (n with 27, 54 and 110 rev/min, it compression forces (P of 500, 1 500 and 2 500 N and feed (S of 0.075; 0.125 and 0.25 mm/rev. Finally, applying the regression method a hardening coefficient was obtained, which approaches to the linearity when restrict the calculation to high ranges of deformation. This hardening coefficient is applied in the equation of Hollomon for determine the new value of flow tension and to apply in the calculation of the minimum work to carry out in a cold process of deformation using simple roller.   Keywords: Plastic deformation; stress; deformation; hardening.
