INCREASING OF MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF CAST GRAPHITIZED STEEL

I. V. Akimov

Abstract


Purpose. Due to the presence of many essential properties (low prime cost, high manufacturability and damping ability, heat conductivity, fluidity and others),the graphitized cast irons are widely applied for parts operating under the conditions of static and cyclic loads, wear at dry friction and aggressive media at elevated temperatures. At the same time because of significant content of the graphite phase in the structure, the cast irons possess relatively low mechanical properties. Thereby the attention is drawn to graphitized steels, the peculiarity of which consists in the presence of graphite inclusions in the structure, which appoints specific cast iron's properties to these materials. But unlike cast irons, the graphite content in them is in 2…3 times lower and it affects positively on mechanical and service properties indices. This work deals with the optimization of the composition of cast graphitized steel, which has high mechanical properties indices. Methodology. The experimental design technique was used in this work. Alloys prototypes were smelted and their mechanical properties were investigated on the basis of these techniques. Findings were exposed to regression processing, and the dependences of the alloys components influence on its properties were obtained. By means of graphical optimization the optimal composition of steel with high mechanical properties indices has been determined. Findings.Ithasbeenestablishedthat carbon and silicon have the most significant influence on the strength and cyclic endurance of graphitized steels. The chemical composition of the cast graphitized steel with high static and cyclic strength indices was suggested in this work. Originality. With the use of mathematical experimental design techniques the dependences describing the influence of carbon, silicon and copper on the static and cyclic strength indices were obtained. They allow optimizing compositions of graphitized steels. Practical value. Using the graphitized steels with optimized composition in mechanical engineering will allow expanding their application areas along with providing reliability and durability of the parts operating under the conditions of static and cyclic loads.
