Contribution of Metallography to Production Problem Solutions II
Editors:
Josef Kasl
Coming in:
November 2017
Periodical and volume:
Solid State Phenomena Vol. 270
Description:
This book contains selected contributions presented on the 14th conference “Contribution of Metallography to Production Problem Solutions” held on 6 – 8 June 2017 in the Mariánské Lázně, Czech Republic. The conference was focused on application of metallography in industrial practice - for solution of production problems, elucidation of premature failure of machine components and constructions during service, breakdowns or accidents. In addition some results of new research projects which could improve manufacturing technology or quality of machine parts are presented. Individual papers deal with failure causes and fracture mechanism, insufficient material properties and incorrect function of the components. Using metallographic analyses, which include light and electron microscopy, spectroscopic methods, physical methods for detection of defects, material structures are investigated. Results are correlated with material properties and recommendations for production technologies improvement are given.
