Abstract:

THE EFFECT OF THE ALLOYING OF Fe with Cr, Si, Ni, Cu, Co, W, and Mn and the contamination of metal with P were studied. The alloying of Fe in comparing metals with a similar size of ferrite grain did not modify its resistance to brittle fracture rupture. The effect of alloying elements on the resistance of Fe to brittle fracture was due to their effect on the size of the ferrite grains, Ni, as a rule, promoted reduction of the size of the ferrite grains, while P promoted enlargement of the ferrite grains.
