COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CHEMICAL-HEAT TREATMENT ON SELECTED CAST HIGH STRENGTH STEELS

Author: Igor BARÉNYI

Abstract: The paper deals with some aspect of nitriding and nitrocarburizing of two middle alloyed high strength steels. Theoretical part very briefly describes fundamentals and benefits of mentioned chemical-heat treatments. Experimental part is focused on hardness profile measurement and depth layer evaluation along with microstructure study of basic areas of layer. Results from experimental part of the paper allow to increase utility properties of castings.

Keywords: high strength, microhardness, nitridizing, nitrocarburizing, layer, microstructure

SOME ASPECTS OF ABRASION RESISTANCE STEEL HARDOX 500 PROCESSING BY SELECTED TECHNOLOGIES

Author: Igor BARÉNYI, Jozef MAJERÍK

Abstract: The paper deals with some aspects of welding and machining of HARDOX 500 abrasive resistant steel. These technologies are most widely used for processing of the Hardox semiproduct to final component. Part focused on welding assesses the weldability of the steel and decreasing of mechanical properties in HAZ including simulation of processes responsible for degradation. Part targeted on HARDOX 500 machining described condition and requirements on machine tools and its inserts. Experimental test of hard rough face milling with two different types of carbide inserts and acquired technological parameters are also mentioned.

Keywords: Hardox, hard machining, tool wear, tool life

APPLIED EXAMPLE FOR REM USAGE AS A TOOL FOR QUICK AND OPERATIVE ANALYSIS OF DEFECTIVE COMPONENT

Author: Ján BEZECNÝ, Igor BARÉNYI, Mária LIČKOVÁ

Abstract: Nowadays, promptness and operative delivery of preliminary but objective results of component failure during its exploitation are needed. For complex material analyses are required to perform several material tests as are chemical composition determination, test of mechanical properties, micropurity and microstructure evaluation, RTG phase analysis, fractography analysis and other. These tests are too expensive in costs and spent time. Application of needed corrective arrangements and restoration of continual production depend on quick and in-time delivery of test results to the producer or user. Application of reflection electron microscope (REM) in evaluation of fracture plane for the real case of damaged component after few load cycles is described in the paper including advantages and disadvantages of REM. Fractography analysis was used to determine of the surface carbonization at standard quenching and tempering. This was consequently confirmed by optic metalography. Main advantage of REM is minimal requirements for test sample surface preparation what are cutting to the dimensions and cleaning. Only disadvantage of this method are qualification requirements and experiences of operator.

MODELING BIOMECHANICAL INTERACTION HUMAN - SMALL ARMS

Author: Ľubomír UHERÍK

Abstract: Presented is a complex mathematical model biomechanical interaction human - hand weapon. With this model it is possible to carry out calculations for two typical shooting positions - shooting standing and kneeling shooting. The calculations are made for shooting with ammunition calibre 5.56 mm. For this type of ammunition is provided a recoil force which acts as the external loading of the virtual model of a man. Mathematical model of biomechanical systems man - Hand Gun permit a deflection weapon during firing and misalignment caused when shooting bursts.
