Improving metallurgy of wheels

Prof Sandeep Singal

Improvement in wheels.

For reduction in failures

Higher loading

Yield strength, tensile strength and ductility are the important properties

Details on the process of manufacture of wheels as a flow chart

Steel is an amazing material says the prof

Plain carbon steel with less than 2% of carbon is used extensively by IR.

Atoms in steel arranged as clusters. Ferrite and Cementite are important phases.

Highly scientific presentation.

Lab scale simulation experiments done.

Lots of processing parameters to be taken care of. A lab video on the preparation is being shown.

Rim quenching at Durgapur wheel plant video shown

Microstructures at different places of wheel.

New wheel stress properties projected
