Microstructural Characterization of Chromium Carbide Overlays and a Study of Alternative Welding Processes for Industrial Wear ApplicationsDownload
Microstructural features of chromium carbide overlays (CCOs) were examined in this work. It was found that the microstructures can contain unmelted alloy powders. It was also shown that the structures of the primary M7C3 carbides are long hexagonal rods. Change in the microstructure from the top...
Seven Ni-WC tubular wires utilized in this study were characterized by the nickel sheath area, powder composition, and overall initial carbide volume fraction of the wire prior to welding. The electrical resistivity of steel, stainless steel, and Ni-WC welding consumables were measured from...
Heat distribution measurements in Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) were concurrently measured at the cathode and anode giving increased insight and prediction capabilities. A calorimeter and water cooled cathode were used to determine energy partitions in GMAW for various electrodes, currents,...
