Because we have minimized surface damage in cutting, grinding can commence with a relatively fine particle-size abrasive, depending on the hardness of the metal/alloy and/or the metal-removal rate in grinding.
We continue our multi-part discussion of quantitative metallography. We hope this information will be usable by many in their metallurgical investigations. Inter-Particle SpacingThe spacing between second-phase particles such as
The January 2017 issue of Industrial Heating features our cover story on a horizontal quench system, the importance of materials science in failure analysis, a new quarterly column, Academic Pulse, and much more.
