Application of ICME to Optimize Metallurgy and Improve Performance of Carburizable Steels
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
QuesTek Innovations LLC has applied its Materials by Design® computational design technology and its Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME)-based methods to successfully design, develop and implement two new high-performance gear steels (Ferrium® C61™ and Ferrium C64® steels) that are being used in demanding gear and bearing applications in ground and aerospace military, commercial aerospace, high-performance racing, oil and gas and other industries. Additionally, QuesTek has successfully designed and developed two new high-performance steels (Ferrium S53® and Ferrium M54® steels that can be used in gearing applications). All four Ferrium alloys are commercially available from Carpenter Technology and have been awarded SAE AMS numbers for procurement. QuesTek has also designed several other high performance alloys using ICME technologies, including a stainless nitridable bearing and gear steel and alloys for additive manufacturing applications.
