  1. 1. The influence of niobium content and cooling rate on mechanical properties of grey cast iron

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Yingshan Yao; [2018]
    Keywords : Grey Cast Iron; Niobium; Cooling Rate; Tensile Strength;

    Abstract : This project mainly investigated how the niobium(Nb) content influences the microstructure and mechanical properties of grey cast iron. Considering the mechanism, the study also analyzes the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Sustainability Using Minimum Quantity Lubrication Technique and Nano-Cutting Fluids in Metal-Machining Processes

    University essay from KTH/Industriell produktion

    Author : Marta García Tierno; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Sustainable manufacturing is making products from processes which have minimal environmental impact, energy and resource efficient, economically viable and safe for consumers and society as whole. Achieving sustainability in manufacturing would mean infusing sustainability methods on product process and system level. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Effect of Solidification time and Cooling rate on the Ultimate tensile Strength of Grey Cast Iron.

    University essay from KTH/Materialteknologi

    Author : Dinesh Sundaram; [2018]
    Keywords : Lamellar graphite iron; tensile properties; pearlitic properties; cooling rate; solidification time; Magmasoft.;

    Abstract : Tensile strength modelling is usually done to predict the mechanical properties of lamellargraphite iron considering microstructural features. This work attempts to create a simplifiedmodel incorporating cooling rate and solidification time without considering themicrostructural features. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental Study of Metallic Surfaces Exposed to Cavitation

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Marcio Abreu; [2018]
    Keywords : cavitation; cylinder liner; lamellar gray cast iron; erosion pitting; graphite class; cavitation;

    Abstract : Cylinder liners in heavy-duty truck engines are subjected to intense vibrations and may sustain damage from the cavitation of bubbles in the coolant liquid, with some risks of leakage and engine breakdown. An ultrasonic oscillating probe was used to simulate the pitting rates and behavior of samples extracted from cylinder liners, which are made of grey cast iron, with differences in surface roughness, glycol and inhibitor content in coolant, coolant temperature and graphite flake class; bainitic microstructures were also tested.

  5. 5. Tribological evaluation of the contact between upper compression ring and cylinder liner with different surface coatings

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik

    Author : Pär Wassborg; [2016]
    Keywords : piston ring; cylinder liner; wear; friction; grey cast iron; titanium oxide; chromium oxide;

    Abstract : The constant pursuit in the automotive industry to increase the engines performance, new solutions are always developed and tested to reduce the friction and increase the efficiency in the engine. One component that contributes to friction losses is the piston ring pack where the top compression stands for up to 40 %. READ MORE
