An Image Processing Based Tool For Determining Carbide Volume Fraction and Size Distribution in Bearing Steels

Carbide volume fraction and size distribution in 100cr6 steel has been studied using experimental and computational methods. Industrial production cycle of bearing steels includes spheroidization and hardening steps results with coarse globular carbides in martensitic matrix. It is well known that coarse precipitates adversely effects the mechanical properties. Therefore, microstructural evaluation is necessary to determine … Read more
