Failure Investigation of Crown Wheel and Pinion

Posted by on Jan 12, 2013 in Research | 0 comments

Table Of ContentZoomSlide ShowShow All Pages The crown wheel and pinion are critical components in the transmission system of an automobile.  Failure of these components takes vehicles off the road, where fleets need them, and leads to increased downtime for repairs.  In high-performance racing applications, failure of these simple parts results in...

The Effect of Cryogenic Treatment on Distribution of Residual Stress in Case Carburized En 353 Steel

Posted by on Jan 12, 2013 in Research | 0 comments

Table Of ContentZoomSlide ShowShow All Pages The effect of cryogenic treatment on the distribution of the residual stress in case carburized steel (En 353) was studied using X-Ray diffraction techniques.  X-Ray diffraction consistently shows a significant reduction in hoop tensile and compressive stresses as a result of deep cryogenic processing.  Two...

Enhancing the Wear Resistance of Case Carburized En 353 Steel by Cryogenic Treatment

Posted by on Jan 12, 2013 in Research | 0 comments

Table Of ContentZoomSlide ShowShow All Pages Cryogenic treatment has been used to improve the wear resistance of materials because it enhances the transformation of austenite (soft phase of iron) to martensite (hard phase of iron).  It is a one-time permanent process and it affects the entire cross-section of the material usually done at the end of...

Deep Cryogenic Treatment Improves Wear Resistance of En 31 Steel

Posted by on Jan 12, 2013 in Research | 0 comments

Table Of ContentZoomSlide ShowShow All Pages Cryogenic treatment is an inexpensive supplementary process to conventional heat treatment, which improves the tribological properties of steels. A study has been made on the effect of cryogenic treatment on En 31 steels done at different stages of heat treatment. It is observed that through cryogenic treatment...
