Experimental investigation of residual stresses introduced via shot peening and their effect on fatigue life of ball bearings

Küçükyılmaz, Ali
In this study, residual stresses introduced via application of shot peening on the raceways of bearing rings and their effect on the fatigue life was investigated experimentally. For improvement of residual compressive stress state, shot peening operation with different parameters was utilized. Residual stress measurements were conducted via X-ray diffraction technique. Optimization of residual stress state during the production of ball bearings is the main target of this study. Process parameters for shot peening and super-finishing were studied for determination of the parameters that induce the most favorable residual stress state. The fatigue life of ball bearings were determined by life cycle tests and tabulated to show the results of the study. The results of the thesis are believed to help for optimization of residual stress distribution and improvement of service life of ball bearings.


Investigations on bulk glass forming ability of titanium based multicomponent alloys
Süer, Sıla; Mekhrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
The aim of this study is to investigate the bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-based alloy systems. These investigations were carried out in two main parts that are complementary to each other: theoretical and experimental. For theoretical studies, which are based on electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation, Ti-Zr, Ti-Co and Ti-Cu alloys were chosen as the binary systems. Alloying element additions were performed to each binary for the investigation of the BGFA of multicomponent Ti-...
Nano-scale phase separation and glass forming ability of iron-boron based metallic glasses
Aykol, Muratahan; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
This study is pertinent to setting a connection between glass forming ability (GFA) and topology of Fe-B based metallic glasses by combining intimate investigations on spatial atomic arrangements conducted via solid computer simulations with experimentations on high GFA bulk metallic glasses. In order to construct a theoretical framework, the nano-scale phase separation encountered in metallic glasses is investigated for amorphous Fe80B20 and Fe83B17 alloys via Monte Carlo equilibration and reverse Monte Ca...
Monitoring variation of surface residual stresses in the shot peened steel components by magnetic barkhausen noise method
Savaş, Serdar; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
Shot peening is a cold-working process by which residual compressive stresses are being induced in the surface region to increase the fatigue strength and the resistance to stress-corrosion cracking. This study covers non-destructive measurement of surface residual stresses in the shot-peened steel components by a micro-magnetic technique, named as Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method. For this purpose, various low alloy steel specimens were prepared by a controlled shot peening process with different int...
Determination of susceptibility to intergranular corrosion of uns 31803 type duplex stainless steel by electrochemical reactivation technique
Arıkan, Mehmet Emin; Doruk, Mustafa; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
In the present work the effect of isothermal ageing treatment on the microstructure and on the localized corrosion resistance of a duplex stainless steel (DSS) was investigated. Specimens taken from a hot rolled cylindrical duplex stainless bar with 22% Cr grade were solution annealed at 1050°C and then sensitization heat treatments were conducted at 650, 725 and 800°C with duration ranging from 100 to 31622 min. The microstructural changes were examined by the light optical microscopy (LOM) and scanning el...
Enhancing electrochemical and electrochromic performances of carbazole comprising monomer via copolymerization with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT)
Kalay, Isil; Yigit, Deniz; GÜLLÜ, Mustafa; DEPCİ, TOLGA; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacioglu, Serife O. (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
In this study, two novel electrochromic copolymers (CoP1.3 and CoP1.5) were synthesized via electrochemical methods and characterized. The comonomers used in the synthesis were 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and a carbazole comprising monomer; 9-(2-(4-(Phenyldiazenyl) phenoxy) ethyl)-3,6-di(thiophen-2-yl)-9H-carbazole (M1). Carbazole containing monomer (M1) and EDOT were combined with two different comonomer feed ratios, 1: 3 and 1: 5 respectively in order to investigate the effect of increasing EDOT amo...
