Effect of silicon on the mechanical properties of isothermally quenched magnesium cast iron
- 101 Downloads
We have shown that the addition of 3.6–3.8% silicon to magnesium cast iron improves the mechanical properties after isothermal quenching. The improvement of the mechanical properties is particularly sharp after isothermal quenching from the temperature of the ferritic-austenitic state. Further increase in the concentration of silicon (>3.8%) leads to a decrease in the strength and ductility of isothermally quenched magnesium cast iron.
