Study on Liquid Metal Embrittlement of Carbon Steels (Report 2) : Effect of Erosion of Carbon Steel in Liquid Metals on LME(Materials, Metallurgy & Weldability)
LME aspects of carbon steels in liquid Cd-Zn alloy environments were investigated under the changes in temperature by constant strain rate test. From these results, the carbon steels in liquid Cd-5Zn alloy were almost immune to LME at higher temperature, whreas those in liquid Cd-50Zn alloy were severely embrittled with increasing temperature. In the latter case, it was confirmed that LME sensitivity of carbon steels shows the different behavior in three temperature regions. Furthermore, it was shown that LME behavior was related to the erosion behavior of iron by liquid zinc.
