Abstract

This article discusses the production process, testing methods, quality control, and common defects found in heavy-section ductile iron (DI) castings, along with analyses of industrial examples. The common defects include shrinkage defects, graphite-particle-related defects, and chunk graphite defects. The recommended chemical compositions for certain section thicknesses in ductile iron grades are presented in a table. The article illustrates the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties of DI by using either industrial examples or castings produced under laboratory conditions.
