Abstract

The article shows that the use of quantitative fracture description may lead to significant progress in research on the phenomenon of stress corrosion cracking of the WE43 magnesium alloy. Tests were carried out on samples in air, and after hydrogenation in 0.1 M Na2SO4 with cathodic polarization. Fracture surfaces were analyzed after different variants of the Slow Strain Rate Test. It was demonstrated that the parameters for quantitative evaluation of fracture surface microcracks can be closely linked with the susceptibility of the WE43 magnesium alloy operating under complex state of the mechanical load in corrosive environments. The final result of the study was the determination of the quantitative relationship between Slow Strain Rate Test parameters, the mechanical properties, and the parameters of the quantitative evaluation of fracture surface (microcracks).

High Temperature Corrosion of TialCrNb Alloy with Tial2 Out-Of-Pack Coating in N2-O2-SO2-HCl Environments

In this article results of microstructural analysis and corrosion resistance tests of 48-2-2 alloy (TiAlCrNb) with and without protective coating were presented. The aluminide coating was deposited by out-of-pack method on the base alloy. The thickness of the coating was 10μm and it was composed of TiAl2 phases. The corrosion resistance tests of the base alloy with and without the protective coating have been conducted at 600°C in the atmosphere containing nitrogen, with the addition of 9% of O2, 0,08% of SO2 and 0,20% of HCl. The tests lasted for 1250h. The aim of the conducted tests was to determine the mass gain of the samples in the given conditions and to identify the corrosion products, using X-ray phase analysis and EDS chemical content microanalysis. The detailed investigation has been done after 25, 50, 100, 150, 250, 500, 750, 1000 and 1250h of testing. As clearly indicated by the results of investigations, aluminide coating improves the corrosion resistance of TiAl alloy in the conditions of the performed test. The corrosion-resistance-enhancing effect of this type of diffusion coatings was attributed to the surface layer consisting of TiAl2.

Abstract

Effect of the Nd-(Fe,Co)-B powder particle biencapsulation with Ni-P layer on bonded magnetic materials corrosion behaviour has been investigated. Bonded magnets were prepared from single-phase, nanocrystalline magnetic Nd11Fe77Co5B6 powder. Powder particles before consolidation were preliminary etched and then coated with bilayer (powder biencapsulation). The powder surface was coated as a first with autocatalytic applied Ni-P layer during 5, 15 and 30 minutes in Ni(II) containing bath and the second layer was thermosetting epoxy-resin. Impact of the used biencapsulation process was rated on the basis of polarization curves recorded in phosphate environment with addition of chloric ions. It has been established that the used biencapsulation method satisfactorily isolate individual particles of the powder and consequently, significantly inhibits corrosion processes of the final material, especially in passivating environment containing Cl-.

Identification and Evaluation of Freckles in Directionally Solidified Casting Made of PWA 1426 Nickel-Based Superalloy

Manufacturing of modern aero engine turbine blades made of nickel-based superalloys is very complex and expensive. The thrust and performance of new engines must address constantly more demanding requirements. Therefore, turbine blades must be characterised by very good mechanical properties, which is possible only if the blades are free of casting defects. An important innovation has been the launching of directionally solidified (DS) and single crystal (SX) turbine blades. But, manufacturing procedures and the chemical composition of many superalloys promote the formation of casting defects that are characteristic only for directional solidification. One of these defects is freckles. Freckles are small equiaxed grains in the form of long chains parallel to the solidification direction and are located on the surface of the casting. Freckles decrease the mechanical properties of DS and SX blades; therefore, they should be always unambiguously identified to improve the manufacturing process. This work presents the possibilities of identifying and evaluating freckles in DS casting made of PWA 1426 superalloy by combining the scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) techniques.

Abstract

The paper presents the results of research on the impact of impurities in the feed ingots (master heat) on the precipitation of impurities in the ATD thermal analysis probe castings. This impurities occur mostly inside shrinkage cavities and in interdendritic space. Additionally, insufficient filtration of liquid alloy during pouring promotes the transfer of impurities into the casting. The technology of melting superalloys in vacuum furnace prevents the removal of slag from the surface of molten metal. Because of that, the effective method of quality assessment of feed ingots in order to evaluate the existence of impurities is needed. The effectiveness of ATD analysis in evaluation of purity of feed ingots was researched. In addition the similarities of non-metallic inclusions in feed ingots and in castings were observed.
