Sinter-hardening studies distaloy DH powders with varying carbon contents

Kılıç, Gülten
In this study, the effect of sinter-hardening on the mechanical properties of Distaloy DH (Fe-2Cu-1.5Mo) powder with 0.4%, 0.6%, and 0,8% graphite additions, was investigated. Powder samples were pressed under 600 MPa, and sintered at 1120°C under endogas from methane for 20 minutes in an industrial sintering furnace. After sintering the samples were cooled with three different cooling rates (0.5°C/sec,1.5°C/sec, and 3°C/sec). Microstructural characterization of samples were done with optical and electron microscopy. Selective etching was utilized in determining the amount of pearlite in samples. The study showed that after sintering, a cooling rate of 0.5°C/s led to decreasing amounts of pearlite in all the Distaloy DH samples with increasing amount of carbon. With increase in the cooling rates to 3°C/s, Distaloy DH-0.4%C sample containis small amount of pearlite, whereas the alloys Distaloy DH–0.6%C and Distaloy DH-0.8%C led to bainitc and martensitic microstructures.

Dinçer, Mehmet; Ögel, Bilgehan; Durlu, Nuri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2014)
In this thesis study, the effect of sinter hardening on mechanical properties of Astaloy 85 Mo (Fe - 0.85% Mo) powder with addition of 0.8% C and varying copper contents (1% Cu, 2% Cu) was examined. Powder mixes were compacted under 600 MPa. After compaction, the samples were sintered at 1120oC under endogas from methane in an industrial sintering furnace and were sinter-hardened with three different cooling rates (0.5oC/sec., 1.5oC/sec., 3oC/sec.). The study revealed that the cooling rate does not make cri...
Investigation of the effect of orientation and heat treatment on the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of 7050 aluminium alloy
Çevik, Gül; Doruk, Mustafa; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2004)
In the present work, the effect of variation in specimen orientation and heat treatment on the Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) susceptibility of 7050 aluminum alloy was investigated in 3,5% NaCl solution and under freely corroding conditions. For this purpose, Constant Extension Rate Tests (CERT) was performed on precracked Compact Tension (CT) specimens and the Direct Current Potential Drop technique was applied to measure the crack lengths. In addition to crack length versus time curves, the relationship ...
Microstructural and elecrochemical characterization of Ti-6A1-4V ELI alloy
Topçuoğlu, Melih; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2006)
In this study, the evolution of structure and the relationship between microstructure and corrosion behavior of the Ti-6Al-4V ELI (Extra Low Interstitial) alloy was investigated in Ringer’s solution at 37 ± 0.1 oC. Initially, different heat treatments were performed in order to obtain several microstructures which were; Widmanstätten α for furnace cooling (FC), basket-weave α for air cooling (AC), martensite (α') for water quenching (WQ) from 1060 oC, and aged martensite for ten hours at 500, 600, 700, 800,...
Production and characterization of porous titanium alloys
Esen, Ziya; Bor, Şakir; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2007)
In the present study, production of titanium and Ti6Al4V alloy foams has been investigated using powder metallurgical “space holder technique” in which magnesium powder were utilized to generate porosities in the range 30 to 90 vol. %. Also, sintering of titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy powders in loose and compacted condition at various temperatures (850-1250oC) and compaction pressures (120-1125 MPa), respectively, were investigated to elucidate the structure and mechanical properties of the porous cell walls...
An investigation of the microstructural and mechanical properties of tri-calcium phosphates doped with aluminum and fluoride ions
Tahmasebifar, Aydin; Evis, Zafer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and tricalcium phosphates doped with aluminum (Al3+) and fluoride (F-) ions at different compositions. TCP was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100C for 1 and 5 h. It was observed that density and relative density of the sintered materials were decreased by extending the sintering time. Increased densities were achieved upon Al3+ and/or F- doping. For structural anal...
