Evaluation of Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Metals by Non-Destructive Methods
Microstructural parameters (kinds of phases, inter-lamellar spacing of pearlite, precipitate size, number of precipitates), mechanical properties(UTS, Vickers hardness) and non-destructive parameters(ultrasonic velocity, ultrasonic attenuation coefficient, electrical resistivity, magnetic coercivity, magnetic remanence, Barkhausen noise) in various metallic materials were measured in order to investigate the mutual relationship among these parameters. The optimum non-destructive parameters were selected for particular purposes in order to evaluate the level of damage to the metallic structures, to differentiate the microstructures and to predict the mechanical properties of superalloy, low and eutectoid steel and Cu alloys non-destructively.
