  3. 3. Friction and wear study of lean powder metallurgy steel in a lubricated sliding contact

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad materialvetenskap

    Author : Caroline Lejonklo; [2019]
    Keywords : Lean steel; Powder metallurgy PM ; Powder metallurgy steel PM steel ; Friction; Wear; Sliding contact; Lubricated; Porosity; Tribology; Adhesive wear; Abrasive wear; Gear; Gear tooth; Particles; Polyalphaolefin 8 PAO 8 ; Contact pressure; Density; Light optical microscopy LOM ; Scanning electron microscopy SEM ; Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy EDS ; Vertical svanning interferometry VSI ; Pin on disc; Pin-on-disc;

    Abstract : A fairly new technology used to produce metallic components is powder metallurgy (PM). Among the advantages with this technique are decreased cost of production for complex-shaped parts, new alloys are made possible, reduced end processing, less material loss, and vibrational damping effects.

  4. 4. Modelling the influence of porosity on fatigue strength of sintered steels

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Strukturkemi

    Author : Emily Hall; [2019]
    Keywords : Fatigue; Powder metallurgy; PM; sintered steels; fracture mechanics; porosity; metal powders; fatigue strength; fatigue limit; utmattning; pulvermetallurgi; metallpulver; utmattningsgräns; brottmekanik; porositet; sintring;

    Abstract : The pores in pressed and sintered components constitute weak points in the material since the stress concentration is larger than the nominal stress there. Therefore, fatigue cracks initiate at the pores. Specifically, it can be assumed that the fatigue cracks initiate at the largest pore in the stressed volume. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sustainability of Additive Manufacturing : Electron Beam Melting of IN718

    University essay from Högskolan Väst/Avdelningen för Industriell ekonomi, Elektro- och Maskinteknik; Högskolan Väst/Avdelningen för Industriell ekonomi, Elektro- och Maskinteknik

    Author : Linda Alsing; Sandra Johansson Storm; [2019]
    Keywords : Additive manufacturing; aerospace industry;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to examine and describe the process of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and the energy use in the production of parts manufactured with the Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology in particular IN718, which is a Nickel-based superalloy with specification according to UNS n07718 that is used in the aerospace industry. The objectives also include a brief overview of powder bed AM methods and a sustainability analysis. READ MORE
