The subject matter of this doctoral dissertation as a research project is to define the effects of Vanadium on mechanical properties, wear resistance and structure of high-alloy chromium steel with 1% carbon. The effects of Vanadium on such steel quality have not yet been examined in detailed scientific researches and in that sense, this doctoral dissertation represents a new scientific contribution in the field of materials science, especially materials engineering. One important characteristic of this steel group that distinguishes them from other high carbon, highalloy chromoium steel is that they contain extremely brittle eutectic microconstituent in their microstructure only in small amount, but are still included in ledebrurite steel class. That, under specific and defined conditions, enables the possibility of their processing via plastic deformation, rolling or forging, thus the final product shall have better mechanical properties than the casting, primarily higher toughness and significantly better ratio between impact toughness and hardness, which are basic conditions for materials being wear resistant. In order to achieve the optimal result, the paper has researched all technological process phases of pattern production, for casting to product’s final heat treatment. Defining the effects of Vanadium has showed that, under specific conditions, it is possible to create sufficiently hard and tough structure for this steelsimultaneously, ie. microstructure that can provide high wear resistance and long service life of wear parts. Also, researches have shown that Vanadium has significant and crucial effect on impact toughness and fracture toughness improvement and by optimising technological parameters: chemical composition, ie. vanadium content, forging temperature and forging heat treatment regime, products with extremely high resistance to all types of wear, especially abrasive wear and corrosive-abrasive wear, can be produced. To a large degree clarification of wear resistance phenomenon is associated with the knowledge of wear parts microstructure and dependance between the type, size and microconstituent arrangement and wear rate. Regarding wear, chemical composition and microstructure of steel define the two most important properties of materials: hardness and toughness. By content adjustment and adjustment of present phases and microconstituents arrangement in the steel structure, maximum hardness and toughness values or optimal combination of these properties are possible to achive. Regarding the clarification of effects of microstructure to wear resistance, the paper shall address the basic constituents separately: carbides and metal base. In the choice of technological manufacturing process we have chosen forged alloys that have better properties than castings. Forging and applied heat treatment (hardening and low temperature tempering of cubic martensite/bainite), should make it possible to create favourable metal base structure, which is hard and sufficiently tough and highly wear resistent simultaneously. Technological process that would be used in the project includes the following phases: • Casting production of bar shape for free forging, manufactured from high-alloy chromium steel with 1% carbon. • Free forging of casting bars in the temperature range between 1050°- 850°, • Heat treatment (hardening and low temperature tempering at 250° and 450°C), • Examination of obtained patterns. In order to achieve maximum hardness, impact toughness and wear resistance, forgings from high alloy Cr-Mo steel are subjected to heat treatment - hardening. The process included heating the forgings to austenization temperature, maintaining temperature until complete homogenization of austenite and carbide is achieved, hardening in heated oil and low temperature tempering. The aim of heat treatment is structure optimization, ie. to obtain metal base consisting of cubic martensite and bainite, with small amount of residual austenite and appropriate content and carbide arrangement. The metal base must be in solid connection with carbide phase to prevent hard abrasive grains from separating and removing carbides from the contact surface. It is desirable that cubic martensite, forming the metal base, should be hardened by secondary carbides dispersion. In that manner martensite shall form a solid and rigid support for carbides, so that they would assume the load for both abrasive and impact-fatigue wear. Casting production – forging preforms is performed by casting in dry sand moulds with liquid glass as binder, and representative casting later being forged was bar-shaped. Characterization of high alloy chromium steel samples is done in laboratory and practically. Laboratory examinations included the analysis of chemical composition, cross-sectional hardness, microstructure analysis (SEM, EDS) and impact resistance. Practical examinations included technological tests to wear resistance. Metallographic testing showed that microstructure depends both, from Vanadium content and the tempering temperature. Increase in Vanadium content leads to decrease and breakage of carbide network at the boundaries of metal base grains. With increase of Vanadium content in the alloy, the amount of Vanadium carbide in the structure also increases. That is a consequence of not only increased Vanadium content, but also its high chemical affinity towards carbon. Gibbs free energy of formation of V6C5 carbides is approximately -170 KJ/mol, and Cr7C3 carbides -60 KJ/mol, meaning that with the increase of Vanadium content the nature, arrangement and morphology of precipitated carbides shall change significantly. Further, vanadium carbide is not extracted in the form of carbide network, but in the form of fine crystals within metal base grains. Moreover, it is noticed that carbides type M7C3 are very nonhomogenous. The reason is presence of Vanadium which substitutionally replaces chromium atoms inside M7C3-carbide net and at higher content replaces iron atoms also. The research results define the technological parameters, chemical composition, casting method and forging process, ie. heat treatment, so that the optimal properties of forgings regarding the structure, mechanical properties and wear resistance are obtained. In that manner the path for achieving a new quality of steel intended for the production of wear parts is marked, and the research results shall represent a new scientific contribution inthe field of materials engineering.
