Design and Construction of a Testing Apparatus for Measuring Multi-Axial Wall Movement During SGI Solidification
During the solidification and cooling of ductile iron castings, wall movement causes unwanted surface distortion and internal porosities. This wall movement is caused by... more
Heat Treatments to Develop High-Strength Ferritic Ductile Iron
Recent research has shown that grain refinement can also be accomplished through intercritical (IC) heat treatment. In those studies, a fine-grained mixture of acicular... more
Iron Casting Conversion Case Study
This case study discusses the process and details on a steel fabrication that was converted into a ductile iron casting.
A New Look at Mn-S Balancing in Gray Cast Iron
Did you know the sulfur content in cast gray irons can be as high as 0.16%? When manganese is not balanced with sulfur, this high concentration can produce hot-tears and... more
