Experiment Research on Initiation and Micro-propagation of the Interface Crack in the Hard Cladding Material 5Cr2Ni08C/Q235
College of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, Shandong University of Science and Technology, Qingdao, 266590, China
The fracture samples of the hard cladding material 5Cr2Ni08C/Q235 are fabricated with the vacuum liquid phase sintering technology, three-point bending fracture experiments are conducted, the sample fracture morphology are observed with SEM. The experiment research results show that: the intergranular micro-crack is easy to initiate in the interface under the action of the external load, and the micro-crack easily appears on the crystal boundary, the thermal expansion coefficient mismatch places, around the interface contamination and micro holes. Based on which, the interface micro-crack easily continues to propagate along the crystal boundary. And the micro-mechanisms of the interface crack initiation and propagation are established.
