Paper Title:
Study on Bending Fatigue Life of 42CrMo Steel with M+F Dual-Phase Structure
  Abstract

The effect of undissolved ferrite amount on bending fatigue properties and failure mechanism were studied by using 42CrMo steel with subcritical quenching process The amount of undissolved ferrite were 0%, 10% and 15%, respectively. The hardness of the specimen was treated to medium hardness. The experimental results show that the existence of undissolved ferrite can not only change the microstructure, but also increase the bending fatigue life. The bending fatigue life elongates with increasing of amounts of undissolved ferrite. The grains can be fined by using subcritical quenching process and the area of phase boundaries can also be greatly increased because of undissolved spheroidal carbide. The martensite and carbide can also be changed using subcritical quenching process. Stress relaxation due to the move of dislocations inside the ferrite and the promotion of strength due to occurring of plastic deformation and enwinded dislocations are main reasons of improving the bending fatigue life. The bending fatigue life elongates with the increase of amounts of undissolved ferrite before the amount of undissolved ferrite reaches 10%. Under the experiment conditions, when the amount of undissolved ferrite is 10%, the bending fatigue life will be the longest.
