Effect of Nanocrystalline and Ti Implantation on the Oxidation Behaviour of Fe80Cr20 Alloy and Commercial Ferritic Steel
The oxidation behaviour of developed Fe80Cr20 alloy and commercial ferritic steel at 1173 - 1373 K in air is studied. Effects of crystallite size and titanium implantation on the oxidation behaviour of specimens were analyzed based on oxide morphologies and microstructures. Oxide scales characterisations of specimen after oxidized were identified by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The surface morphology of oxide scales were examined with scanning electronic microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). The rate constant of oxidation were determined using Wagner method. The results show that crystallite size and titanium implantation has remarkably enhanced the oxidation resistance. The oxidation kinetics indicate that the developed Fe80Cr20 as the finer crystallite size both unimplanted and implanted specimens show better performance.
