Effect of temperature on fatigue properties of Din 35 NiCrMoV 12 5 steel

Önem, Orkun Umur
DIN 35NiCrMoV125 (equivalent to AISI 4340), which is a high strength low alloy steel (HSLA), is mainly used at military applications in the production of gun barrels. The main aim of this study was to determine the low cycle fatigue (LCF) behaviour and the influence of temperature on low cycle fatigue failure properties of that steel. Three different temperatures (room temperature, 2500C and 4000C) were used in the experiments in order to analyze the effect of temperature. For each temperature, five strain amplitudes (in the range of 0.2% offset yield point to 2% strain) were applied and the duplicates of each experiment were performed to obtain more accurate results. Strain amplitudes and the corresponding stresses were calculated from tension tests performed at each temperature. Strain amplitude versus fatigue life (e- N) curves for three different temperatures predicted that fatigue life at a given strain increases with increasing temperature. The transition lives of those three curves were observed at 1 % strain amplitude and no significant effect of temperature on transition lives was observed. For stress based analysis, stress versus fatigue life (S-N) curves were drawn. These curves pointed that fatigue strength at a given number of cycle decreases with increasing temperature. Fractographic analyses of the fracture surfaces were performed to examine the effects of load and temperature on the specimens. It was observed that the number of crack initiation sites increases with increasing strain.


Effects of heat input and thermal cycles to the fracture toughness of API 5L grade X70M steel welded by gas metal arc welding
Erol, Eren; Gür, C. Hakan.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
High strength low alloy steels are widely used in line pipe applications since they have reasonably high strength and toughness due to their micro-alloying elements and production via thermomechanically controlled process. During welding of these steels, microstructures of the fusion zone and the heat affected zone consisting globular and acicular ferrite alter due to induced heat and thermal cycles. Consequently, changes in the microstructure affects the mechanical properties such as fracture toughness. Ga...

Bilgiç, Çağrı Doğan; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2016)
ERDEMİR Steel Plant produces wide range of alloy steel for various industries. Main demand of industries for steel is high quality end product with lower prices. One of the criterion affecting not only the steel cleanliness and also price of the product is bottom stirring in basic oxygen steelmaking. The objective of this study is to investigate effects of bottom stirring on basic oxygen steelmaking. With this objective, process parameters, analysis of produced heats were investigated to determine effects o...
Effect of Hardness on the Ballistic Impact Behavior of High-Strength Steels Against 7.62-mm Armor Piercing Projectiles
DEMİR, TEYFİK; Ubeyli, Mustafa; Yıldırım, Raif Orhan (2009-03-01)
Ballistic performance of engineering materials should be known in selection of the most suitable armor material to protect civilian or military system with the lowest possible weight against various threats. In this study, the ballistic impact characterization of high-strength steels, namely AISI 4340 and DIN 100Cr6, was investigated using 7.62-mm armor piercing (AP) projectiles by considering four hardness levels and five areal densities. The main aim was to examine the effect of hardness and areal density...
Effect of ECAP and post-aging processes on 2024 aluminum alloy
Saraloglu, Ebru; Tan, Evren; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2008-01-01)
Strength of aluminum alloys can be remarkably improved by obtaining ultrafine grain size via severe plastic deformation. Equal Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) is considered to be a good candidate that is capable to produce bulk components. In this study, the combined effects of ECAP and post-aging treatment on the mechanical properties of aluminum alloys were investigated. An ECAP die with 120 degrees channel angle was used for severe plastic deformation of 2024 Al-alloy. The ECAPed specimens revealed highe...
Effect of liner material and explosive type on penetration effectiveness of shaped charge
Zaki, S.; Uddin, Emad; Rashid, B.; Mubashar, A.; Shah, Samiur R. (2019-07-01)
Shaped charges are used in many civilian and military applications. This study focuses on the effects of liner material and the type of explosive on the development of shaped charge jet. This was carried out by experimentation and numerical finite element-based modelling. Shaped charges were tested on a steel plate during the experimentation and the experimental data were used to validate the developed numerical model of the shaped charge. A hydrocode-based finite element model was able to predict the perfo...
