This article provides information on the general characteristics, composition, uses, applications and specifications for standard grades of ductile iron. It describes the manufacturing and metallurgical process control procedures, including testing and inspection, and heat treatment. The article also talks about the effects of composition, graphite shape, and section size on the mechanical properties of ductile iron. Tables and graphs provide helpful information on the tensile properties, compressive properties, torsional properties, damping capacity, impact properties, fracture toughness, fatigue strength, and elevated-temperature properties of ductile iron.
