Abstract
The effect of stresses on the microstructure and dispersed particles in a heating-performance Fe‒0.12C–0.06Si–0.04Ni–0.2Mn–9.5Cr–3.2Co–0.45Mo–3.1W–0.2V–0.06Nb–0.005B–0.05N (wt %) steel has been studied under long-term strength tests at Т = 650°C under initial applied stresses ranging from 220 to 100 MPa with a step of 20 MPa. Under an applied stress of 160 MPa, which corresponds to a time to fracture of 1703 h, a transfer from short- to long-term creep takes place. It has been shown that alloying with 3% Co and an increase in W content to 3% significantly increase the short-term creep resistance and slightly increase the long-term strength upon tests by more than 104 h. The transfer from short- to the long-term creep is accompanied by substantial changes in the microstructure of the steel. Under long-term creep, the solid solution became depleted of tungsten and of molybdenum down to the thermodynamically equilibrium content of these elements in the solid solution, which leads to the precipitation of a large amount of fine particles of the Laves phase at the boundaries of laths and prior austenitic grains. At a time to fracture of more than 4 × 103 h, the coalescence of the M23С6 carbides and Laves-phase particles occurs, which causes the transformation of the structure of fine tempered martensite lath structure into a subgrained structure.

The tempering behaviour of two 9Cr–3Co–0.5Mo–0.2 V–0.05Nb–0.005B steels containing 2 and 3 wt% W was examined. The decomposition of retained austenite induces the formation of semi-continuous films of W-rich M23C6 carbides along boundaries at 525 °C. The increase in W content from 2 to 3 wt% modifies the normal carbide precipitation sequence in the vicinity of these boundaries. The formation of W segregation at prior austenite grain/interlath boundaries leads to formation of the thermodynamicall...

Abstract The effect of tempering temperature on microstructure and mechanical properties was studied in a low-nitrogen, high-boron, 9%Cr steel. After normalizing and low-temperature tempering, cementite platelets precipitated within the martensitic matrix. This phase transformation has no distinct effect on mechanical properties. After tempering at 500 °C, M23C6 carbides appeared in the form of layers and particles with irregular shapes along the high-angle boundaries. Approximately, 6% of the r...

Two 9Cr–3Co–0.5Mo–VNb steels with 2 and 3 wt% W subjected to normalizing at 1050 °C and subsequent tempering at 750 °C for 3 h were crept at 650 °C under applied stresses ranging from 100 to 220 MPa. Both steels exhibit the creep strength breakdown at a rupture time of ~2000 h. The two-phase separation of M(C,N) carbonitrides to Nb- and V-rich particles occurs during tempering. No additional strain-induced coarsening of M(C,N) carbonitrides takes place under creep conditions. Long-term ageing le...

The creep behavior of a P92-type steel was examined at 923 K. The threshold shear stress of 51 MPa was revealed by an analysis of steady state creep behavior at applied stress ranging from 118 to 200 MPa. The tempered martensite lath structure stabilized by M23C6-type carbide particles with an average size of about 110 nm and MX-type carbonitrides with a size of 40 nm located within ferritic matrix evolved after tempering. The transient creep at an applied stress of 118 MPa was accompanied by tw...

Abstract Microstructure and hardness in the grip and gage sections of ruptured 3%Со modified P92 steel specimens were examined after creep tests under applied stresses ranging from 200 to 100 MPa at T =650 °C. Under long-term aging, the depletion of W from solid solution leads to precipitation of the Laves phase. In addition, coarsening of MX carbonitrides occurs after 34 h of aging. The final dimensions of these particles are independent of further aging time. A breakdown of applied stress vs t...

In this work, the sources of the high creep resistance of martensitic steels containing 9% Cr were considered based on the results of studying the evolution of the dislocation structure of martensite in P92-type steel in creep at 650°C. The steel structure after tempering was characterized by significant elastic microstrains of the crystal lattice, which were produced by dislocations of the same sign and long-range stresses from the dislocation boundaries of laths. The high creep strength of mar...

The creep behavior, deformation mechanisms, and the correlation between creep deformation parameters and creep life have been investigated for Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel (Gr.91, 9Cr-1Mo-VNb) by analyzing creep strain data at 723 K to 998 K (450 °C to 725 °C), 40 to 450 MPa, and t r = 11.4 to 68,755 hours in NIMS Creep Data Sheet. The time to rupture t r is reasonably correlated with the minimum creep rate $${\dot{\varepsilon }}_{ \hbox{min} }$$ and the acceleration of creep rate by strain in the accele...

Abstract The precipitation of the Laves-phase in a low-carbon 9% Cr heat resistant steel was studied under conditions of aging and creep at 923 K. The Laves-phase of Fe2(W,Mo)-type with a ratio of Mo:W of 1:5 was observed on various boundaries in a tempered martensite structure after a long period of aging/creep. The Laves-phase precipitations provided effective stabilization of the tempered martensite lath structure and therefore promoted creep resistance, although their effect on the dislocati...

Abstract The coarsening of Laves phase in a Re-containing 10% Cr-3% Co-3% W steel during both creep and ageing at 923 K was investigated. The depletion of W solutes from the ferrite matrix is accompanied with the precipitation of Laves phase, wherein creep strain accelerates both these processes. The equilibrium W content in the ferritic matrix of 1.24 wt% and the volume fraction of Laves phase of 1.6% is reached after 500 h of creep and 1000 h of ageing. This is related to lower activation ener...

Abstract The Z-phase (CrVN) precipitation in a 9% Cr–3% Co martensitic steel during creep at 923 K and 948 K has been investigated with aim to establish the effect of temperature on the nucleation mechanism of these particles and their coarsening behavior. Ostwald ripening of VX carbonitrides strongly affects these processes. An increase in creep temperature significantly accelerates the transformation of the nanoscale MX carbonitrides into the Z-phase particles causing the Z-phase nucleation in...

An analysis of mechanical properties has been performed for 12% Cr and 9% Cr steels by means of tension tests at 20 and 650°C and yield tests at 650°C and applied stresses of 200–100 MPa with a step of 20 MPa. The yield strength and ultimate tensile strength of the 12% Cr steel are, correspondingly, 614 and 710 MPa at 20°С and 365 and 390 MPa at 650°C. At both temperatures, the strength properties of the 12% Cr steel under tension are better than for the 9% Cr steel due to higher values of contr...

Abstract The nucleation of the Laves phase particles in a Re-containing 10% wt. Cr-3% Co-3% W steel with a low nitrogen and a high boron contents during creep is characterized by distinctive features. The precipitation process can be written as M23C6 carbide → M6C carbide → Laves phase. The nucleation of all phases in this precipitation sequence is heterogeneous. The M23C6 carbides precipitate on the boundaries of martensitic structure during tempering at temperature of 770 °C. The M6C (Fe3W3C) ...

The kinetics of the growth of M23C6 carbide particles in 9% Cr martensitic steel with a high boron content is studied under conditions of long-term aging and creep. It is shown that the grain-boundary diffusion is a mechanism that controls the coarsening of these carbides during the aging. Deformation accelerates the coarsening of particles during creep, which can be explained by additional diffusion along dislocation lines.
