  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. The mechanisms of metal expansion penetration during solidification of grey cast iron

    University dissertation from Institutionen för konstruktions- och produktionsteknik

    Author : Izudin Dugic; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Grey cast iron; solidification; solidification modelling; graphite expansion; molar volume; casting simulation; thermal analysis; thermoanalysis cup; casting temperature; inoculation; inoculant; metal expansion penetration; eutectic cell size; primary austenite; austenite grain;

    Abstract : The production of high quality castings requires the casting surface to be clean and free from defects. One type of defect often found is caused by metal penetration into the sand mould. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Thermal Conductivity of Cast Iron: Influences of Microstructure on the Thermal Conductivity of Cast Iron

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Daniel Holmgren; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; EBSD; Laser Flash Technique; Modelling; Spheroidal Graphite; Lamellar Graphite; Primary Austenite; Compacted Graphite; Pearlite; Ferrite; Thermal Conductivity;

    Abstract : The thermal transport properties of cast iron are important in high temperature applications,where the temperatures should be kept low and the thermal gradients within the componentsmall. Dimensional and microstructural changes, thermally induced stresses and even failuremight be catastrophic consequences of intense and/or unevenly distributed temperatures. READ MORE
