    Effects of tungsten on erosion-corrosion behavior of high chromium white cast iron

    , Article Materials Science and Engineering A ; Volume 454-455 , 2007 , Pages 623-628 ; 09215093 (ISSN) Mousavi Anijdan, S. H ; Bahrami, A ; Varahram, N ; Davami, P ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this study, effects of tungsten on wear resistance of high chromium white cast iron with and without tungsten in erosion-corrosion condition have been investigated. At the same time, the comparison between wear resistance of this grade of cast iron and low alloy steels with various contents of Cr which are used in industrial condition (in Sarcheshme Company, the greatest copper production company in the Middle East and with more than 4000 years historical cupper production background) was studied, while, copper concentrates have used for erosion particles. Results show that, because of higher hardness of matrix due to the tungsten, the wear resistance of high chromium cast iron increases.... 

    Rolling Element Bearing Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Rohani Bastami, Abbas (Author) ; Behzad, Mehdi (Supervisor)
    Diagnostic and prognostic of spall defect in the rolling element bearings is investigated in this thesis. A new numerical model is proposed which considers defect size, defect clearance and defect roughness. The results of this model based on surface roughness show superior similarity to experimental data than classic model. To improve diagnostic ability in the rolling element bearings, four new methods are proposed in this thesis. These methods are short-time statistical features, local curve roughness, level crossing and wavelet packet decomposition. These methods are applied in outer ring, inner ring and ball defects and it is showed that these methods have better detection ability...

    A two-step pack cementation technique was used to cover nickel-based IN-738LC superalloy with a Cr-aluminide coating layer. The IN-738LC/Cr-aluminide samples were oxidized at 900 °C for 350 and 700 h, isothermally, and 175 and 350 h, cyclically. Each cycle lasted for 25 h. Effects of the isothermal and the cyclic oxidation on (a) morphology, (b) new-phase formation, (c) weight gain, and (d) oxidation reactions were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, electron dispersive spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and weight gain measurements. From results, it was concluded that the oxygen attack was more severe during the cyclic oxidation than the isothermal procedure. Kinetics of the...
