Alloy Application Development
Alloy Performance Research
Our client wanted assistance with designing protocols to down-select from a suite of several new alloys. The end application was going to involve severe steel-on-steel (both about HRC 62) contact at high speeds.
DTB’s solution was to perform highly controlled coupon level tests – incorporating the tracking of thermal and damage profiles. The testing process yielded results that allowed for down-selection on the basis of microstructural analysis of damage and sub-damage zones. We also designed and performed component level high fidelity testing with contact-severity-sensing feedback loops to further enhance the selection data.
