Development of Thermal Fatigue Resistant Austenitic Cast Alloys for High Temperature Engine Exhaust Gas Systems 2003-01-0830

As trends of automobile engine exhaust gas temperature are reducing emissions, the material for the exhaust components have been changed from ductile irons to ferritic cast alloys or stainless steel, further to austenitic cast alloys for higher performance engines. The current austenitic alloys, however, have thermal fatigue failure over 1273K. The authors developed excellent thermal fatigue resistant austenitic cast alloys, by investigating the effects of alloying elements on strength and thermal expansion, which correlate with thermal fatigue property. Developed alloys are expected to apply to exhaust components at gas temperatures over 1273K.
