  1. 1. Morphological characterization of primary austenite in cast iron

    University dissertation from Jönköping : Jönköping University, School of Engineering

    Author : Juan Carlos Hernando; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lamellar Graphite Iron; Solidification; Primary Austenite; Microstructure Evolution; Dendritic coarsening; Compacted Graphite Iron; Magnesium Fading; Nodularity;

    Abstract : Automotive industry products portfolio includes a wide variety of complex‐shaped cast iron products, such as truck engine components, that need to withstand a constant trend of higher demands, especially urged by stricter environmental regulations on emissions. Combined with this continued demand on properties improvement, cast iron industry faces a process problem related to the lack of understanding of solidification and mechanisms behind defect formation.

    Abstract : Automotive industry products portfolio includes a wide variety of complex-shaped cast iron products, such as truck engine components. Urged by strict environmental regulations on emissions, these components constantly need to combine higher demands on performance with lighter designs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Factors Influencing the Formation of Shrinkage Porosity in Grey Cast Iron

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Lennart Elmquist; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Shrinkage porosity; Grey iron; Solidification; Primary austenite; Equiaxed zone; Columnar zone; CET; DAAS; Oxygen; Hydrogen;

    Abstract : The presence of shrinkage defects is of major concern in the production of grey iron castings. This type of defect can penetrate through the casting as a three-dimensional network. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dendritic morphology and ultimate tensile strength of pearlitic lamellar graphite iron

    University dissertation from Jönköping : Jönköping University, School of Engineering

    Author : Vasilios Fourlakidis; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lamellar graphite iron; Primary austenite dendrite; Ultimate tensile strength; Microstructure model;

    Abstract : The continued development, of cylinder blocks and cylinder heads for heavy truck engines that are made of lamellar graphite iron (LGI) is focused on achieving high ultimate tensile strength (UTS) whilst conforming to environmental regulations. The purpose of this work is to further improve the tensile strength as well as the predictive engineering tools for optimization of LGI aimed to enhance the efforts for producing lighter and sustainable components without sacrificing performance.

  5. 5. Study of solidification and volume change in lamellar cast iron with respect to defect formation mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Péter Svidró; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lamellar cast iron; shrinkage porosity; solidification; volumetric change; dendrite coherency; inter-dendritic space;

    Abstract : Lamellar cast iron is a very important technical alloy and the most used material in the casting production, and especially in the automotive industry which is the major consumer. Beside the many great properties, it is inclined to form casting defects of which some can be prevented, and some may be repaired subsequently. READ MORE
