... of the order of 600°C. The scale found externally is due to high temperature oxidation. In these instances, the magnetite formed is of the hard, crystalline variety, which rapidly blunts normal metal cutting tools. In cases of on-load corrosion the magnetite is also of the massive, crystalline form...

... Abstract A recurring piston shaft failure problem on the billet-loading tray of an extrusion press was investigated. Two shafts fractured within a period of 10 days. The shaft was machined from normalized EN3 (AISI C1022) steel stock without further treatment. Visual, microstructural, chemical...

... of spline teeth. To find out the cause of fracture of the shaft, a finite element analysis was carried out to predict the stress state of the shaft under steady loading and shock loading, respectively. The steady loading was produced under normal operation, while the shock loading could be generated...

... that the normal loading contact line of a spiral bevel tooth travels along the profile in a biased direction. Many failures look like this, even though there is greater than a one-to-one ratio. Before concluding that the condition shown in Fig. 4-16 is applicable, a complete engineering analysis must be made...

Unfortunately, the potential effects of anisotropy were apparently neglected when this component was designed and manufactured from the plate stock, because the loading was applied in a direction that stressed the weakest planes in the material, that is, a direction normal to the fibering. No recommendations...
