The influence of chemical composition on the dimensions

Open access


The paper presents the influences of nanofluids, which are used in hardening process, to dimension changes, hardness and microstructure of hardened construction of steel samples. An analysis was also carried out with the use of English methods of cooling abilities of nanofluids environments based on water, solid nanoparticles of Al2O3 and ammoniac water. The results of this experiment show, that only one of specific dimensions of cooled samples, in the distilled water, changed for about 9%, but when using nanofluids this change was smaller. The hardness of alloy materials got a few percent more when nanofluids were used in comparasion to using the distilled water. The gained results allow to conclude the positive influence of nanofluids on parameters of the hardened materials.
