Virtual training of heat treatment of steel and cast iron has been created for people to be fully acquainted with the heat treatment of steel and cast iron. Scheduled heating and cooling of metals, ceramics and alloys in order to obtain the desired mechanical and physical properties. It is called heat treatment. Heat treatment is also used for non-metallic materials such as glass and glass-ceramics. Heat treatment, as its name implies, is heating and cooling of steel according to a special graph. Heating intensity, for example, 200 oC per hour. The intensity of cooling in water or oil or molten salt or air affects the hard phase and the properties of the steel.
Heat treatment of steel and cast iron:
Heat treatment of white cast steels and cast irons used in cement factories after production of steel and cast iron parts. Whether by casting or other methods such as forging and machining, parts can be used without heat treatment. At the same time, the strength and abrasion resistance of the above parts were moderate. And there is a possibility of failure (due to low strength) or wear (due to low hardness). While performing heat treatment, both tensile strength and stiffness increase and increase tensile and shear strength.
What is cast iron?
Cast iron (C> 2.11%) is a general term used to describe a family of metals with a wide range of properties. All cast irons contain more than 2% carbon and a significant amount of silicon (usually 1-3%).
Types of cast iron:
Cast iron is divided into different types based on microstructure, the chemical composition of these structures may overlap, but depending on the type of cooling, the final microstructure of cast iron can be different.
Prerequisites for the virtual training course for heat treatment of steel and cast iron:
This course does not require any special prerequisites and the course is taught from the beginning.
