  • Title: Production of Nano Grained High Strength Steel By Mechanical Alloying of MWCNT and Iron
  • Abstract: The research examined the possibility of usingmechanical alloying route to synthesize CNT/Fe composite having properties comparable with nano-grained steel. In addition, the strengtheningmechanism of the productis identified throughanalysis of the relation between the microstructures andmechanical properties of the composites with and without alloying element. High energy ball milling is used to fabricate carbon nanotube (CNT)/ Fe composite powders. The CNT/Fe composite powders with or without micro additions are subjected to spark plasma sintering (SPS) to achieve dense compacts. The compacts are then subjected to open die forging and normalizing. Nova Nano FE-SEM 450 is used to determine the particle size of as received iron powder. The size of Cu and ground Fe particles is determined by Nanoparticle size analyzer.The diameter of CNT has been confirmed using TEM (Tecnai G2 20 FEI. The XRD technique is used to investigate the material structure of different powder samples as well as the final normalized samples. The Optical microscopy, SEMand TEM are performed for microstructural analysis of finalbulk sample.Vickers Micro- hardness testingis done to determine the hardness of samples by applying at 5 g load. CNT/Fe composites of fine grain size with high hardness have been successfully fabricated. CNTs remain intact even after such harsh milling conditions due to the cushioning effect provided by comparatively larger particles of Fe. Finer grain sizes in CNT/Fe-Cu composite result from the network of Cu particles which precipitated during SPS and forging. The micro hardness of both the composites formed is comparable with submicron grain steel produced by other routes.
