Wybrane pełne teksty z tego czasopisma
Purpose: MMCs have microscopic scale thermal residual stress that is generated after cooling from high temperature Because of the difference of thermal expansion coefficient between the matrix and reinforcement. Because of their high service temperature, automobile parts experience thermal cycling between room and service temperature. Those thermal cycles can vary the properties of the MMCs by changing residual stress field. In this study, the relations between residual stresses and hardness were investigated. Design/methodology/approach: For the residual stress investigations, thermal cycling test was performed. After thermal cycling testing, the thermal residual stress of the MMC was investigated using high resolution Xray diffraction test. On the other hand, the residual stress was calculated by the finite elements method and it was compared to the experimental results. Findings: The residual stress relaxed in the matrix with thermal cycling. With the relaxation of the residual stress, the hardness of the composite was decreased. Research limitations/implications: In this study, the relaxation of residual stress of MMCs was observed with thermal cycling. Further investigations for the mechanical properties, like tensile behaviour and wear properties, should be needed in next study. Originality/value: In this study, numerically calculated residual stress in magnesium matrix MMCs was compared with experimental results.
