Alloyed White Iron with Composite Structure

  • G. I. Sil'man


Results of studies of several kinds of alloyed iron with special microstructure, the morphology of which ensures considerable effect of composite reinforcement, are presented. As a rule, these metals have nondirectional composite eutectic or quasi-eutectic structure reinforced by carbide fibers or granular inclusions of carbides. Such structures are a result of different actions on the metal such as creation of favorable thermokinetic conditions of structure formation, alloying, heat treatment, plastic deformation, or combinations of these methods. Characteristic features of such structures and properties of white iron with them are described.
