Strenghtening mechanisms of Specialisr
💡 Deep dive into the strengthening mechanisms of world's hardest LPBF maraging tool steel Specialis® on #MaterialsMonday
Kudos to our partners at IAM-WK: Institute for Applied Materials, KIT and especially Niki Nouri for publishing the great research paper with the title "Characterization of phase transformation and strengthening mechanisms in a novel maraging steel produced using laser-based powder bed fusion"
Highlights of the paper:
👉 Addition of V and Al leads to grain refinement in maraging steels.
👉 Intermetallic phases Ni3Ti and Fe2Mo are identified as hardening precipitates.
👉 The contributions of Hall-Petch and Orowan strengthening are separately calculated.
👉 The calculations show good agreement with the measured tensile strength difference.
