Paper Title:
Effect of Alloying Elements on Graphite Morphology in CGI
  Abstract

Understanding how alloying elements and amounts affect the shape and size of graphite in compacted graphite cast irons could be of great importance. Some important material properties that are affected by the graphite shape are tensile strength and thermal conductivity. Knowing the effect of alloying additions could be of assistance when trying to optimise material for a specific application. In order to determine how graphite changes depending on alloying additions the microstructure of nineteen CGI materials were investigated. All melts were based on one chemical composition and alloying elements were added to obtain melts with variation in magnesium, silicon, copper, tin, chromium and molybdenum. Some of the more important microstructure features that were analysed are the amount and size of different graphite particles. The result from this analysis should give an indication on what features each alloying element affect and how these features varies with alloying amount.
