  • COMBINED AND CONSECUTIVE SPD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

    pg(s) 10-11

    This work presents the analysis of the stress-strained state of billets processed by such SPD processing techniques as "ECAP-Conform", "drawing with shear" and "rotary forging" with a special geometry of anvils. We analyze the influence of processing by these SPD techniques, as well as by their combination with conventional metal working methods, on the structure formation and enhancement of properties in Al and Cu-based alloys, as well as in low-carbon steel. We demonstrate the critical role of the induced non-monotonous deformation in the formation of a combination of enhanced physical and mechanical properties in the investigated metallic materials during treatment by combined and consecutive SPD techniques.

  • STRENGTH AND SERVICE PROPERTIES OF STAINLESS Cr-Ni-Ti STEEL AFTER EQUAL CHANNEL ANGULAR PRESSING IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE 200-400°C

    pg(s) 12-14

    The research paper presents the improvement on the mechanical and service properties of the austenitic stainless 0.07% C-17% Cr-9% Ni-0.7%-Ti steel in the fully austenitic state obtained by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) at the temperatures of 200 °C and 400 °C. Subgrain oriented structure in the Cr-Ni-Ti steel after ECAP significantly enhances the strength characteristics of steel at satisfactory plasticity. The fatigue limit of steel after ECAP at T = 200 ° C is higher than that after ECAP at T = 400 ° C, increasing in comparison with the initial state by 2.2 and 1.7 times, respectively. It was revealed that severe plastic deformation by ECAP increases the friction coefficient of the material by the 1.1 and 1.7 times at T = 200 ° C and 400 ° C, respectively. Despite this, the wear rate after ECAP at T = 200 ° C and 400 ° C decreases by 7 and 40 times, respectively, compared to initial state.

  • SOME PROPERTIES OF MORTARS CONTAINING CHROMIUM-STEEL WASTE CHIPS

    pg(s) 15-17

    Especially in recent times, many studies have been performed on cementitious mortar materials to have different properties. Some of these studies include the production of different building materials to reduce the harmful effects of devices emitting electromagnetic and radioactive waves used at industrial scale. For this purpose, in this work, chromium steel shavings in metallic character obtained during metal machining processes, were used in cementitious mortar mixes by replacing with limestone fine aggregate in a certain ratio. These mixes were tested to examine their physical and mechanical properties. The findings were compared with those of control specimens. With the inclusion of chromium steel chips, bulk density, apparent porosity, water absorption and capillarity of the mortars increased while flexural and compressive strength decreased.

  • INVESTIGATION PROPERTIES OF EXPLOSIVE WELDED JOINTS BETWEEN STRUCTURAL STEEL AND HIGH ALLOYED MATERIALS

    pg(s) 22-25

    In this research work are presented results of investigation properties of explosive welded joints (bondings) between structural steel and high alloyed materials. As base material was used SA 516 Gr 70 structural steel, while AISI 316L austenitic stainless and nickel base alloy Inconel 825 were used as cladding materials.

    Performed investigation can be divided as investigation of plates for welding before explosive welding and investigations of welded joints after performed welding. Chemical, mechanical (tensile testing, shear testing, hardness measurement and impact toughness) and microstructural investigations were performed of base metal plates. Welded joints were investigated after heat treatment of cut pieces from welded plates and chemical treatment of bended specimens in acid solution.

    Obtained results from testing were compared with the standard requirement. Generally, obtained results correspond pretty well with standard requirement.

  • CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES THE MOTION OF DISLOCATIONS DURING THE DEFORMATION OF SINGLE CRYSTALS

    pg(s) 26-29

    The motion of a dislocation in Aluminum is considered at room temperature with allowance for the Peierls relief. This study has been accomplished using the methods of mathematical modeling. It was shown by means of numerical experiment that the free path length of dislocation depends on the frequency of applied external elastic field. Here a hardening of crystal took place due to the dynamical losses. In the presence of resonant frequency external alternating elastic field the gradient of hardening curve growth, and therefore, the yield strength, is reduced. It was shown that the regularities of large-scale processes occurring in deformable body may be clarified by means of analyzing the micro processes.

  • ENHANCED MECHANICAL AND SERVICE PROPERTIES OF ULTRAFINEGRAINED COPPER-BASED ALLOYS WITH Cr, Zr, AND Hf ADDITIVES

    pg(s) 3-5

    Structure and properties of low-alloyed copper-based alloys with Cr, Zr and Hf after severe plastic deformation (SPD) using techniques of high pressure torsion (HPT) and equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) have been studied. SPD significantly increases strength of the alloys by formation of ultrafine-grained structure. Cu5Zr and Cu5Hf particles suppress the grain growth in ultrafine-grained (UFG) structure more effectively than the Cr particles and provide additional hardening during aging. Moreover, it was found that the application of additional aging after SPD significantly improves service properties of the alloys (fatigue limit, wear resistance and electrical conductivity). This combination of properties results in a high durability of electrodes for resistance spot welding produced from UFG Cubased alloys.

    pg(s) 33-35

    The effect of filler concentration of the powder mixture (Ti-TiC-C), synthesized by high-voltage electric discharge (HVED), on the thermal and mechanical properties of epoxy composites, was studied. Basing on the value analysis of destructive stresses in bending (σ), Young’s modulus (E), resilience (W) and heat resistant by Martens (T), a range of powder mixture (Ti-TiC-C) concentration, which allows to increase thermophysical and mechanical properties of epoxy composites for manufacturing equipment in conditions of alternating loads was set.

  • METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES: SELECTION OF COMPONENTS

    pg(s) 36-39

    Development of new alloys has been slowed by the empirical method of trials and errors that absorbs more and more resources and leads to ever smaller results. Solution of this problem is possible through the use of the general principles of the alloys design theory. In this paper, we have proposed to consider cast metal matrix composites as foundry alloys and have developed a methodological approach to selection of alloying and reinforcing components considering the operational conditions for parts of friction units. Application of the proposed approach allows to make reasonable choice of composite alloys components within conditions of various schemes of reinforcing, including exogenously reinforced, endogenously reinforced and complex reinforced alloys.
