Effect of tube spinning and subsequent heat treatments on strength, microstructure and residual stress state of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel

In the present study, the effects of deformation percentage (23, 30, 50 and 66%) and subsequent stress relief and tempering heat treatments on the mechanical properties, residual stress state and microstructure of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel tubes manufactured by forward spinning were evaluated. Mechanical properties were determined by means of hardness and tensile tests. The tangential component of the surface residual stresses was determined by a slitting method. Plastic deformation of the metal during spinning refined and elongated the grains in the direction of metal flow, following a spiral path, resulting in improved mechanical properties. Tensile and yield strengths, as well as hardness, were all increased as a function of increasing percentage deformation. With stress relieving, the strength values were enhanced, whereas a slight decrease in hardness took place. Stress relieving did not change the microstructure considerably, whereas tempering resulted in a partially recrystallised microstructure, removing the effect of plastic deformation. The tangential residual stresses were tensile, and those of the as deformed tubes increased with an increasing amount of deformation up to 50%, then tended to decrease. The magnitude of the residual stresses decreased with stress relieving heat treatment, while tempering reduced the residual stresses to negligible levels.


Effect of microstructural modification on damage tolerance of 34CrMo4 shaft steel
Ozcan, Burak; Gurer, Goksu; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Wiley, 2020-06-01)
Overall damage tolerances of the heat-treated 34CrMo4 steels having ferritic-pearlitic, bainitic, and tempered-martensitic microstructures were evaluated based on their threshold stress intensity factor prior to small crack propagation, fatigue strength, and fracture toughness under static loading. Kitagawa-Takahashi diagrams were constructed to determine the limiting size of small crack propagation. The micromechanical effects of carbide morphology and phase distribution on quasi-static and dynamic mechani...

The effect of rare-earth (Sm) microalloying on the thermal stability and phase selection along with the effect of nanocrystallization on the mechanical properties of amorphous melt-spun ribbons of Zr50Cu40Al10, Zr49Cu39.2Al9.8Sm2 and Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 alloys were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vickers and nanoindentation hardness tests and micropillar compression analysis. XRD and TEM analyses showed that all samp...
Effect of Microstructure on the Mechanical Behavior of Reactive Magnetron Sputtered Al2O3/TiO2 Multilayer Ceramics
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Japan Institute of Metals, 2008-11-01)
Mechanical characteristics of reactive magnetron sputtered Al2O3-TiO2 multilayer ceramics were studied. Tailored mechanical properties such as moderately high hardness and reasonable toughness were achieved through varying sputtering process parameters resulting in microstructural control at nano-scale. Interchanging Al2O3 and TiO2 layers with a single layer thickness of similar to 65-70 nm were deposited on single crystal alumina (sapphire) substrates to form the multilayer structure composed of 10 layers....
Effect of calcium or yttrium doping on cation ordering and electrochemical performance of Li(Ni0.80-xCo0.15Al0.05Mx)O-2 (M = Ca, Y) as a Li-ion battery cathode

The electrochemical performance of Li(Ni-0.80-xCo(0.15)Al(0.05)M(x))O-2 (NCA) cathode was demonstrated to be improved by calcium and yttrium doping. Samples were synthesized by ultrasonic sound-assisted co-precipitation method which satisfied precipitation of nano-sized particles around 20 nm. Doping elements were introduced to the structure by solid-state reaction route and single phase, layered Li-0.993(Ni0.804Co0.154Al0.035Y0.014)O-2 +/-sigma and Li-0.991(Ni0.801Co0.152Al0.037Y0.019)O-2 +/-sigma samples ...
Investigation of the variations in microstructure and mechanical properties of dual-matrix ductile iron by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise analysis
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Erdogan, Mehmet (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
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 tem...
