Plasticity of Low Aluminum Alloys from Fe-Al System

Alloys based on intermetallic phases from the Fe-Al system they belong to a group of high-temperature creep resisting materials of advantageous physicochemical and mechanical properties at an elevated and high temperature. In general, limitation on the capacity for a broad application of intermetals from the Fe-Al system, e.g. as an alternative to expensive alloy steels of specific properties, is their insufficient plasticity, which is a factor inhibiting further their development as constructional materials.

The aim of this work is study about the analysis of the influence of hot deformation parameters like a temperature and strain rate on the plasticity and structure changes in alloys on the base Fe-Al system. These alloys are competitive for their cost and properties in comparison with stainless and acid resistance steels. Were analyzed the properties determined in hot compression test of cast alloys Fe-28Al, Fe-28Al-5Cr, contain microelements Mo, Zr, C, B. The tests were carried out on the range of temperature 700°C % 1100°C with strain rate 0,1 s-1. The results indicated that the Cr addition had an positively effect on the plasticity properties. Moreover exhibited that the Cr addition had an influence on the mechanism of the rebuilding the structure changes.

The paper describes the results of structure and properties tests of flat bars made of alloy WE43 obtained in the process of extrusion with the use of KOBO method. An analysis of structure changes was conducted both in initial state and after plastic deformation.

A quantitative analysis of the material was also conducted with the use of METILO program. The paper also presents results of mechanical tests marked in the uniaxial tensile testing in room temperature and in elevated temperature for achieved flat bars. Fractographic tests were conducted after tensile test in order to determine the mechanism of cracking.

Abstract

This article is part of the research on the microstructural phenomena that take place during hot deformation of intermetallic phase-based alloy. The research aims at design an effective thermo - mechanical processing technology for the investigated intermetallic alloy. The iron aluminides FeAl have been among the most widely studied intermetallics because their low cost, low density, good wear resistance, easy of fabrication and resistance to oxidation and corrosion. There advantages create wide prospects for their industrial applications for components of machines working at a high temperature and in corrosive environment. The problem restricting their application is their low plasticity and their brittle cracking susceptibility, hampers their development as construction materials. Consequently, the research of intermetallic-phase-based alloys focuses on improvement their plasticity by hot working proceses. The study addresses the influence of deformation parameters on the structure of an Fe-38% at. Al alloy with Zr, B Mo and C microadditions, using multi – axis deformation simulator. The influence of deformation parameters on microstructure and substructure was determined. It was revealed that application of cumulative plastic deformation method causes intensive reduction of grain size in FeAl phase base alloy.

Abstract

The article presents the results of plastic shaping tests of AZ61 and WE43 alloys. There were both classic extrusion tests as well as extrusion tests of KOBO method. An assessment was made of the influence of extrusion process parameters on the mechanical properties and the structure of the alloys. On the basis of achieved results of mechanical properties for alloys AZ31 and WE43 the susceptibility of those alloys to plastic shaping was determined. Quantitative tests of structure assessment in case of alloys AZ61 and WE43 after extrusion with the use of KOBO method were conducted with the use of METILO program. It has been shown that extrusion AZ61, WE43 alloys method KOBO leads to considerable fragmentation of grains.

Abstract

The article presents the results of tests of influence of the thermo-mechanical treatment parameters on the mechanical properties and microstructure of steel 23MnB4 for cold-upsetting. Measurements of the ferrite grains and pearlite colonies were conducted with the use of Met-Ilo program supplemented by additional procedures dedicated to structure analysis of ferritic-pearlitic steel. The process of rolling was conducted in simulation in semi-continuous finishing train arrangement with different temperature and cooling rate. Elaborated procedure of quantitative analysis of microstructure and conducted mechanical properties tests will be used during preparations of modified technologies of wire rod rolling to prepare products made of steel, the microstructure of which is characterised higher utility properties.
