Gas nitriding of high vanadium steels: Experiments and simulations
2004 (English)In: Metallurgical and Materials Transactions. A, ISSN 1073-5623, E-ISSN 1543-1940, Vol. 35A, no 9, 2799-2802 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Four experimental high vanadium alloys were gas nitrided in an ammonia-nitrogen atmosphere. The microstructure and concentration gradients have been investigated by means of several techniques. The nitriding process has been tentatively simulated using the DICTRA software. A precise process simulation does not seem possible at present; the reason for this is discussed. Instead, bounds for the carbon and nitrogen concentration profiles were obtained by applying different simulation conditions.
