Aim of the study is to present the technological process of obtaining cast iron with lamellar graphite for use in the manufacture of cylinder liners, and to identify the main alloying elements and track their influence on the mechanical properties of cast iron with lamellar graphite.

Also paper presents analysis of 20 batches of cast iron with lamellar graphite, which are made of cylinder liners, in terms of chemical composition and the mechanical properties.

After the analysis of the 20 castings of cast iron Fc 250 it is observed that: the increase in the carbon content shows a decrease of the tensile strength and hardness of the gray cast iron; the increase in silicon content shows a decrease in hardness and tensile strength. Decreasing the amount of graphite and especially the alloy of silicon iron lead to hardness increase 1% Si increases hardness by 50 HB). A statistical analysis has been performed on the data obtained that accounts for changes in alloying additions. A modeling and optimization of mechanical properties (tensile strength and hardness) was performed according to the percentages of carbon, silicon and manganese. Mathematical modeling found that the hardness and traction resistance of the cast iron decreased with the increase in carbon, silicon and manganese content.

Calcium manganese oxide (CaMnO3) polycrystalline was synthesized by solid state reaction (SSR) and hot-press (HP) methods. The powder of CaCO3 and MnO2 were mixed by ball milling then calcined at 850°C for 10 h and hotpressing at 850 °C for 1 h to obtain the CaMnO3 samples. The crystallography of the samples was analyzed by the X-ray diffraction (XRD). The microstructures of the samples were observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). It was found that, the sintering process influence the crystalline perfection and have a direct impact on the mechanical properties of CaMnO3 and their aging behavior. The values of the effective elastic modulus was 6 GPa and Flexural strength was 0.417 MPa of CaMnO3 were found to be in the range of corresponding values for high performance and possibility fabricated n-type thermoelectric leg.
