Abstract:

The Ordnance Corps is sponsoring the development of chromium-iron alloys in the interest of obtaining a strong, ductile, corrosion-resistant alloy. The results of some short time elevated temperature tensile tests and V- notch Charpy impact tests of some recently developed alloys with 40 and 50 chromium are presented in this paper. These data indicate that chromium-iron alloys have now been developed with interesting engineering properties as evidenced by ductility at room temperature and retention of strength at elevated temperatures up to 1000 F.
