Abstract:

Strength and mechanical properties of two- and three-phase WC-TiC-Co and WC-TiC-TaC-Co alloys are discussed in relation to temperature, alloy composition, and alloy structure. The mechanism of breakdown under bending and compression and the effects of alloy structure on this process are described. Partial replacement of titanium carbide by tantalum carbide in three-phase WC-TiC-Co alloys tends to have a favorable effect on mechanical properties such as fatigue strength under bending and impact durability.
