Maraging steels of different compositions have been prepared by means of induction furnace electro slag remelting technique using titanium and chromium instead of cobalt which is a high expensive strategic element, also nickel content was reduced to 10-13%. Mass attenuation coefficients, half value layers and effective atomic numbers have been determined for the prepared samples at photon energies 238, 583, 661, 911, 1173, 1332 and 2614keV. The results are compared with the corresponding theoretical calculations. In addition, the hardness has been determined for the investigated steels. High nitrogen free nickel steel and carbon steel samples have been also investigated for the sake of ...view middle of the document...

Maraging steels have high strength, high toughness, and good machining properties that are used in many commercial industries and military. The good combination of high strength and toughness of those maraging steels is achieved by the formation of a high number density of uniformly dispersed fine inter-metallic precipitates in a Ni-rich martensitic matrix. They are formed during ageing in the temperature range between 400 and 600oC after the steels had been solution annealed in the austenitic phase and air cooled which results in a martensitic microstructure. Over the past half-century, two major types of maraging steels have been developed, the 18Ni maraging steels and the cobalt-free maraging steels. The Standard maraging steels contain 18% Ni, 8% Co, 5% Mo and 0.4% Ti. But Ni, Co and Mo are very expensive strategic alloying elements as cobalt reaches to levels as high as 8 to 13%. This keeps the steels rather expensive, preventing wider selection and application, but with maximum strength levels reaching 2400 MPa, accompanied by good toughness and ductility. Therefore, developing cobalt-free maraging steel with reduced quantities of expensive alloying elements to lower the production cost has been an important direction of maraging steels research. Over the past two decades, enormous advances have been achieved in the development of cobalt-free maraging steels to high strength levels with Ni and Ti as the major precipitation hardening phase in cobalt-free maraging steels.
To overcome this problem, titanium was used as one of the...

Blowing Bottle Tops: Making Music with Glass Bottles

1037 words - 5 pages Have you ever wondered why glass bottles made a sound, kind of like a music note? Well, this paper will explain how this works. The paper will be talking about sound, sound waves, standing waves, musical note names and frequencies, resonance, and closed-end air columns. Closed-end air columns will be a main focus in the paper, studying the physics behind it. Glass bottles are an example of a closed-end air column. Therefore, the more water

The Physics of a Guitar

1264 words - 5 pages Introduction: The guitar is a typical string instrument, whose physics are similar to many other string instruments. The main parts consist of the body, the neck, the bridge, the tuning pegs, the sound hole, and the strings. An electric guitar lacks the sound hole and instead relies on an amp for amplification. The physics of a guitar involves sound waves, how they are amplified, and how they travel. Strings: The vibration of the strings of

The Anatomy of a Roller Coaster

1764 words - 7 pages The Anatomy of a Roller Coaster To adequately understand the relationship between physics and roller coasters, it is essential to first describe and explain the basic structure of roller coasters. In simple terms, a roller coaster is much like that of a passenger train. To explain, a roller coaster consists of a series of connected cars that move on tracks. However, unlike a train, a roller coaster has no engine, or rather a power

It was during her time in Paris that Marie met Pierre Curie. In 1894 Marie met Pierre while working in a research laboratory working on the magnetic properties of steel. They married the next year, and it was considered a perfect marriage because both Curies were passionate about science

The Physics of Acoustic Guitar

1030 words - 5 pages The Physics of Acoustic Guitar Everything in the universe involves some type of physics. Even the universe itself does, but have you ever wondered about the physics of simpler items? Physics is vital for all musical instruments, if it wasn’t; they probably wouldn’t produce the beautiful sounds that they do. One of these instruments is acoustic guitar. By looking at the instrument, it doesn’t look very complicated, but if you delve deeper into

Most guitar players have progressed with the technology of electric guitars, but when my husband picks up an acoustic guitar and starts to play a song for just me, I hear his love for me in the sounds that he produces. Imagine my surprise when a physics class conveyed to me

Using the Laws of Physics to Decrease Car Collisions

There are many factors that come into play when a car collision occurs, however only one factor stays constant throughout every single collision, and that is the laws of physics. The laws of physics are the fundamental base of understanding the world we live in, but unfortunately many people seem to be completely oblivious to them. A lot of the time, we try to deny our ignorance to
