Article de conférence

Dans l’industrie sidérurgique, la coulée continue est le procédé qui se situe entre l’élaboration d’acier et le laminage. Ce procédé a pris, depuis 30 ans, une place de plus en plus importante dans la filière de production en raison des avantages par rapport à la technique traditionnelle de coulée en lingots ; économie d’énergie et de main d’œuvre, meilleur rendement et amélioration de la qualité du produit, ainsi l’amélioration du rendement métallique de la coulée et la possibilité de couler des produits de plus faible section, directement adaptés aux laminoirs finisseurs. La coulée continue permet de transformer le métal liquide en métal solide en des formes simples, et de façon continue. Un des soucis majeurs dans l’industrie de l’acier est l’amélioration de la qualité finale du produit. Certes, le produit final présente parfois des défauts, qui sont difficiles à détecter pendant la fabrication ; la plupart du temps, ils ne sont détectés que dans les phases finales de fabrication. L’objectif de ce travail consiste à fournir un modèle numérique du refroidissement secondaire permettant de prédire l’évolution du débit de refroidissement secondaire en fonction de la vitesse de coulée dans chaque zone des nuances de l’acier.

Thèse de doctorat

Good mechanical compatibility with cellular tissue and corrosion resistance, as well as excellent biocompatibility in body fluids, are required for titanium-based alloys to be materials of choice for biomedical applications such as orthopedic implants and dental. The present thesis aims to obtain TiNi binary alloys developed by vacuum induction, as a possible alternative for dental applications. The TiNi alloys developed as part of this thesis work contain Ni contents ranging from 40 to 60%. The choice of this composition was made, first to check the influence of the Ni content on the formation of the structure and the morphology of the phases and secondly the repercussions of this structure on the final properties of the alloy to know; the mechanical properties, tribological and electrochemical and bioactivity. TA6V4 alloy is used for comparison.For this purpose, the chemical composition of the TiNi alloys and the microstructural evolution was determined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled to the EDS. The formation and growth of the phases was followed by X-ray diffraction. Instrumented hardness measurements were made to assess the hardness and Young's modulus of the alloys. The coefficient of friction of the TiNi alloys and the wear rate were determined by dry sliding at different loads. The electrochemical characterization in Hank's solution and artificial saliva has been studied by stationary techniques and by EIS at different immersion times. The tribocorrosion behavior was performed in artificial saliva to understand the tribocorrosion mechanisms of TiNi and TA6V4 alloys. The bioactivity tests were performed in the SBF solution after 21 days of immersion. The SEM / EDS and RX results show that the two alloys Ti50Ni50 and Ti40Ni60 have a TiNi type matrix (NiTi), and Ti2Ni and Ni2Ti type precipitated phases. The revealed microstructure for the Ti60Ni40 alloy is a Ti2Ni-based matrix comprising the NiTi intermetallic. This same alloy had the lowest Young's modulus, while the Ti40Ni60 alloy had superior superelasticity, than the other titanium alloys (Ti50Ni50, Ti60Ni40 and TA6V4).All TiNi alloys exhibit better tribological behavior compared to the TA6V4 alloy which results in high wear resistance and low wear. Abrasive and adhesive wear mechanisms have been identified as degradation mechanisms for TiNi and TA6V4 alloys, with the predominant adhesive mechanism for TiNi alloys. The Nyquist and Bode impedance diagrams for all TiNi and TA6V4 alloys show capacitive loops with two time constants, indicating that the passive film is formed of two layers namely, a compact passive internal barrier layer and a porous outer layer. The electrochemical study revealed that all alloys have a passive character. The corrosion resistance of the TA6V4 alloy is greater than that exhibited by the various TiNi alloys. TiNi alloys showed hydroxyapatite formation under in vitro bioactivity conditions of SBF. Voir les détails

Contribution to the improvement of the quality of continuous casting steels at Sider El-Hadjar-Annaba

Article de conférence

Continuous casting is the process between steel making and rolling. It consists of turning liquid steel into slabs, blooms, or billets. The molten steel comes into contact with the mold, it will solidify and the first phases of the steel will form. This study confirms the need to check the steel quality and the continuous casting parameters such as; casting speed, extraction rate, oscillation of the mold and lubrication during primary cooling. The main objective is to build a thermal model that is an important task for predicting temperature profiles on different sides and edges of the product, in order to optimize the crust of steel.

Ahmed KELLAI, Azzedine Lounis, Sami KAHLA, Brahim IDIR  (2018)

This paper is focused on the estimation of the effect of root pass chemical composition, in multi-pass GTA Weldments, onmicrostructure and mechanical properties of duplex stainless steel welds.We used two different fillermetals, the super duplex ER2594 and duplex ER 2209. Microstructures of different passes of welded joints are investigated using optical microscope andscanning electron microscope. The relationship between mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and microstructure ofwelded joints is evaluated. It is found that the tensile and toughness properties of the first weldment, employing the combinationof ER 2594 in the root pass and ER 2209 in the remaining, are better than that of the second weldment employing ER 2209 allpasses, due to the root pass grains refinement and its alloy elements content as chromium Cr and nitrogen N. The microstructureindicates the presence of austenite in different forms on the weld zone of ER 2209, same in the case of ER 2594, but with highercontent and finer grains size, in particularWidmanstätten austeniteWA. Potentiodynamic polarization tests of the first weld metalevaluated in 3.5% NaCl solution at room temperature have been demonstrated a corrosion resistance higher than that of thesecond weld metal. This work addressed the improvement of the corrosion resistance using appropriate filler metal withoutgetting any structural heterogeneity and detrimental changes in the mechanical properties.

Hot deformation and static recrystallization behaviours of a low carbon 3% Silicon steel, which is ferritic structure at high temperatures, has been investigated using wedge-shape specimen with a single-pass hot rolling experiments. The hot-rolling tests were carried out at temperature of 900?C to 9mm thickness followed by holding at the same temperature (900oC). The volume fraction recrystallized increased with the increase in rolling reduction and holding time after rolling, although a plateau was observed in the relationship between the volume fraction recrystallized and the effective strain. The preferential area for the recrystallization was the previous grain boundaries, particularly triple points of boundaries where the strain was concentrated. An inhomogeneity of recrystallization in the transverse sections through the thickness of the deformed wedges was observed. It was concluded that in this fine grain size material of 3% Silicon steel, the knowledge of deformation and recrystallization behaviors needs better control of strain and temperature under wedge-shape material.

Article de conférence

A significant amount of scale is produced during casting of ingots and processing of hot-rolled products. In the El Hadjar steel complex, during the various rolling operations, the amount of scale produced is approximately 0.1% of the annual production of the rolling mills. The quality of the thin sheet during rolling is affected by the behavior of the iron oxide layers formed on their surfaces. For this reason, acids and oils are used for the descaling of slabs and billets by means of pressurized water. The calamine, contaminated by these various acids and used oils, is rejected and stored involuntarily on important areas and pollutes soil and groundwater. Micrographic observations as well as x-ray diffraction analysis have shown that calamine consists mainly of iron oxides. Hematite and magnetite become the main components for oxidation times greater than 1 hour. Characterization tests have shown that calamine is dense (ρ = 4.8 g/cm3), its particle size is variable depending on the degree of oxidation (from 0.5 to 10 mm). Simultaneous thermal analysis showed that an increase in mass of the calamine sample with a release of heat. Studies are underway for the physico-chemical characterization of the soils of the storage areas. Voir les détails

Herein we study the infiltration behavior of Ti and Cu fillers into a Ti2AlC/Ti3AlC2MAX phase composites using aTIG-brazing process. The microstructures of the interfaces were investigated by scanning electron microscopyand energy dispersive spectrometry. When Ti2AlC/Ti3AlC2 comes into contact with molten Ti, it starts decomposinginto TiCx, a Ti-richandTi3AlC; when in contact with molten Cu, the resulting phases are Ti2Al(Cu)C, Cu(Al), AlCu2Ti and TiC. In the presence of Cu at approximately 1630 °C, a defective Ti2Al(Cu)C phase was formedhaving a P63/mmc structure. Ti3AlC2 MAX phase was completely decomposed in presence of Cu or Ti fillermaterials.The decomposition of Ti2AlC to Ti3AlC2 was observed in the heat-affected zone of the composite.Notably, no cracks were observed during TIG-brazing of Ti2AlC/Ti3AlC2 composite with Ti or Cu filler materials.
