Characterization of Duplex Stainless Steel Weld Metals Obtained by Hybrid Plasma-Gas Metal Arc Welding

Despite its high efficiency, autogenous keyhole welding is not well-accepted for duplex stainless steels because it causes excessive ferrite in as-welded duplex microstructure, which leads to a degradation in toughness and corrosion properties of the material. Combining the deep penetration characteristics of plasma arc welding in keyhole mode and metal deposition capability of gas metal arc welding, hybrid plasma - gas metal arc welding process has considered for providing a proper duplex microstructure without compromising the welding efficiency. 11.1 mm-thick standard duplex stainless steel plates were joined in a single-pass using this novel technique. Same plates were also subjected to conventional gas metal arc and plasma arc welding processes, providing benchmarks for the investigation of the weldability of the material. In the first place, the hybrid welding process enabled us to achieve less heat input compared to gas metal arc welding. Consequently, the precipitation of secondary phases, which are known to be detrimental to the toughness and corrosion resistance of duplex stainless steels, was significantly suppressed in both fusion and heat affected zones. Secondly, contrary to other keyhole techniques, proper cooling time and weld metal chemistry were achieved during the process, facilitating sufficient reconstructive transformation of austenite in the ferrite phase.


Refinement of primary carbides in AISI DC 53 cold work tool steel by thin section copper permanent mould casting and water atomization
ÇARDAKLI, İSMAİL SEÇKİN; Kalkanlı, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2019-05-01)
In this study, as alternative methods to conventional production methods involving thin section copper permanent mould casting (fast solidification) and water atomization (rapid solidification) of AISI DC 53 cold work tool steel have been investigated. Thin slabs obtained by copper mould casting was homogenized at 1150 degrees C for one hour and then hot rolling was be applied. After hot rolling, conventional heat treatment have been applied to thin slabs. The same heat treatment procedure have been perform...
Production of in situ aluminum-titanium diboride master alloy formed by slag-metal reaction
CHANGIZI, Ahmad; Kalkanlı, Ali; SEVINC, NACİ (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-12)
Al-TiB(2) master alloys have received much attention in recent years owing to their potential as efficient grain refiners for aluminum foundry alloys. In this study, the process of production of master alloys was investigated to develop a low cost method, namely, slag-metal reaction. This method can be used to fabricate Al-TiB2 master alloy in situ from the TiO(2)-H(3)BO(3)-Na(3)AlF(6) and Al system. Since the price of the raw materials is low and the technology is simple, the processing technique appears t...
Processing of porous TiNi alloys using magnesium as space holder
Aydogmus, Tarik; Bor, Sakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-10)
Slightly Ni-rich, chemically homogeneous porous TiNi alloys having porosities in the range 59-81% have been produced using magnesium powder as pore forming agent. TiNi in the form of austenite, apart from a small amount of martensite, was the only phase present in the product. The processed alloys exhibited interconnected open pores spherical in shape and with an average pore size around 400 mu m. Elastic modulus values observed to extend from 0.5 to 9 GPa depending on porosity content were comparable to th...
Properties of YBCO superconductors prepared by ammonium nitrate melt and solid-state reaction methods
Sozeri, Huseyin; Ozkan, Husnu; Ghazanfari, Nader (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-31)
Ceramic YBCO superconductors were prepared by: (1) ammonium nitrate melt, (2) solid-state reaction methods and the properties of the samples obtained were compared. Under the same annealing conditions single phase YBCO was synthesized at a lower temperature by the former method. Moreover, at 900 degrees C Y-123 phase and the initially adjusted Y-211 additive could be formed using ammonium nitrate melt, but not with the solid-state method which leads Y-123 at a higher temperature (950 degrees C) without Y-21...

In this study, effects of simultaneous Mo and W substitution for Nb additions on the stability and magnetic properties of Fe-Co-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloys fabricated by centrifugal casting are investigated. The saturation magnetization (J(s)) and coercivity (H(c)) for the as-cast Fe(36)CO(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)X(4) (X = Nb or Mo(0.5)W(0.5)) BMG alloys and melt-spun Fe(36)Co(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)Mo(2)W(2) were in the range of 1.02-1.57T and 11.13-1685 A/m, respectively. The Fe(36)Co(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)X(4) ...
