Influence of Aging Temperature on the Microstructure and Stress Rupture Property of DZ951 Alloy
Effect of different aging temperatures on microstructure and stress rupture properties of DZ951 alloy were investigated in this paper. The results show that the shape of carbide changed from script-like in as-cast alloy to block during different aging treatments. MC carbide degrades into M23C6 at the aging temperature of 970°C, which made alloy have a better combination of strength and ductility than that at other aging temperatures. The size of γ′ phase increases and the shape of γ′ phase changed from sphere (870°C) to quasi-cuboid (920°C) and cuboid (970°C) with the increasing aging temperature. The stress rupture life of DZ951 alloy at 1100°C/60MPa improves with the increased of aging temperature. The fractographs at different conditions showed a ductile fracture mode.
