Effect of Tensile Elastic Deformations on Magnetic Properties of Preliminarily Deformed Structural Steel Operating Under Pressure

The effect of elastic deformations by uniaxial tension on magnetic characteristics of preliminarily deformed structural steel 20K used for making objects operating under pressure (boilers, tanks, vessels etc.) is studied. The mechanical properties and the chemical composition of the steel are determined. The magnetic properties are tested in a closed magnetic circuit and with attached magnetic devices to determine the informative magnetic parameters to be used for developing techniques for nondestructive inspection of the stress–strain state of structures from the steel studied.
