Abstract:

Control of alloy composition and processing to achieve grain coarsening resistance in rapidly solidified alloys is examined via the theory of grain boundary pinning and particle coarsening. The principles are illustrated for the case of manganese sulfides in steels. A thermodynamic survey of potential stable dispersed phases identifies TiN and rare-earth sulfides as particularly promising for alloy development via rapid solidification. Author
