Investigation of the variations in microstructure and mechanical properties of dual-matrix ductile iron by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise analysis

Gür, Cemil Hakan
Erdogan, Mehmet
The variations in the microstructure and tensile properties of dual-matrix ductile irons have been investigated non-destructively by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method. Specimens have been intercritically austenitised at 795 degrees C and 815 degrees C for 20 minutes, and then oil-quenched to obtain different martensite volume fractions. Two specimens, namely as-cast and oil-quenched from 900 degrees C, were prepared for comparison purpose. To investigate the effect of tempering, some specimens were tempered at 500 degrees C for 1 h and 3 h. The results showed that there is a good correlation between MBN response and variations in microstructure and mechanical properties. The volume fraction of martensite can be controlled to modify the mechanical properties, and all changes in the microstructure can be nondestructively monitored by MBN.


Comparison of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic velocity measurements for microstructure evaluation of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140 steels
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Çam, İbrahim (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-01)
The aim of this study is to compare the performance of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic methods for the evaluation of the microstructure of commercial steels. Following the austenitization of the specimens made of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140, various heat treatments were carried out to obtain microstructures consisting of martensite, tempered martensite, fine pearlite-ferrite, and coarse pearlite-ferrite. The microstructures were initially characterized by SEM investigation and hardness measurements. The ...
Investigating the effects of hardening of aluminium alloys on equal-channel angular pressing-A finite-element study
Karpuz, P.; Simsir, C.; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-15)
Equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) is a promising severe plastic deformation method for production of ultrafine-grained bulk metals and alloys with considerably improved mechanical properties. In this study, numerical experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of strain hardening of aluminum alloys on the process performance of ECAP via finite element modeling. In the constitutive model, isothermal-plane strain, frictionless condition was assumed. The numerical results showed that strain hard...
Improvement of fracture resistance in a glass matrix optomechanical composite by minicomposite unit bridging
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-15)
Minicomposite unit bridging, which was experimentally determined to be the dominant toughening mechanism resulting in the R-curve behavior of the Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite-reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite, was studied quantitatively using luminescence spectroscopy. Applied stress induced shift of the luminescence bands of the minicomposite reinforcement was calibrated. Using the experimentally obtained calibration curve, axial stresses could be mapped along the minicomposite embedded in the g...
Extensive deformation behavior of an all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 nanostructured multilayer ceramic at room temperature
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Kagawa, Yutaka (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2009-11-01)
An all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 ceramic multilayer composed of 10-100 nm thick alternating layers was fabricated using the reactive magnetron sputtering process. Microindentation tests were carried out on the multilayer ceramic followed by microstructural observations of the cross-sections of the indented sites to characterize the indentation response of the system. During the observations, it was noted that an extensive room temperature "deformation" occurred in the multilayer ceramic material. The material shows ...
Observation of in situ enhanced crystallization, negative resistance effect and photosensitivity in Tl2InGaSe4 crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Irshaid, Tahani M. A.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2021-02-01)
In this work, we report the properties of Tl2InGaSe4 crystals as multifunctional material. Namely, Tl2InGaSe4 crystals are grown by the modified Bridgman method using mixtures of TlInSe2 (50%) and TlGaSe2 (50%) single crystals. The enhanced crystallization and structural stabilities are monitored by the X-ray diffraction technique during the in situ heating and cooling cycles. The structural analyses on the Tl2InGaSe4 crystals revealed domination of both of the monoclinic and tetragonal phases in the crysta...
