  1. Study of Phase Transformations in Steel X38CrMoV5-1 Using Dilatometry and Differential Thermal Analysis

    Ana Pastor, Pilar Valles and Sebastián F. Medina

    Version of Record online: 26 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600229

    The aim of this study is to characterize X38CrMoV5-1 steel from the point of view of phase transformations. Phase transformation temperatures, AC1 and AC3, and CCT diagrams are determined by carrying out dilatometry and DTA tests. These results are useful to optimize a heat treatment, as well as the mechanical properties in steel parts employed in a safety braking application.

  2. Effect of Combined Cyclic Heat Treatment on AISI 1080 Steel: Part II-Mechanical Property Evaluation

    Alok Mishra, Chandan Mondal and Joydeep Maity

    Version of Record online: 26 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600215

    A distinctive plain carbon eutectoid steel consisting of dispersed nano-sized cementite particles in a martensite matrix is developed with an application of typical cyclic heat treatment that involves a combination of reconstructive and displacive phase transformations in successive two heat treatment cycles resulting in ultrahigh strength (UTS = 2016 MPa) along with reasonable ductility (%Elongation = 11).

  3. Study of Effective Transient Thermal Resistances of Different Heat Transfer Sections during Solidification of Steel Ingot

    Chao-Jie Zhang, Yan-Ping Bao, Min Wang and Le-Chen Zhang

    Version of Record online: 25 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600268

    The effective transient thermal resistances of different heattransfer sections during solidification of steel ingots are calculated. The restrictive steps of heat transfer of the early-stage, mid-stage and late-stage of solidification are heat transfers through the mold and ingot/mold interface, heat transfer through the outer wall of the mold, and heat transfers through the solidified shell, respectively.

  4. Kinetics of Hydrogen Reduction of Magnetite Concentrate Particles in Solid State Relevant to Flash Ironmaking

    Mohamed Elzohiery, Hong Yong Sohn and Yousef Mohassab

    Version of Record online: 24 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600133

    The kinetics of magnetite concentrate reduction by hydrogen has been measured for developing and designing a novel flash ironmaking process. The figure shows a schematic of the laminar-flow reactor system used in this work.

  5. Reduction Kinetics of Hongge Vanadium Titanomagnetite-Oxidized Pellet with Simulated Shaft Furnace Gases

    Wei Li, Gui-Qin Fu, Man-Sheng Chu and Miao-Yong Zhu

    Version of Record online: 24 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600228

    The present work investigates the reduction kinetics of Hongge vanadium titanomagnetite (HVTM)-oxidized pellet with simulated gas compositions of dry pulverized coal gasification, water–coal slurry gasification, Midrex, and HYL-III. The aim is to provide scientific direction for reactor design and operational parameter determination of gas-based shaft furnace, as well as theoretical and technical basis for the comprehensive utilization of HVTM.
