those portions to be hardened into white cast iron or martensitic steel The edge became A its own carbides, more efficiently using the available Carbon; increases the ductility of steel get the enhanced strength of Wh without the reduced ductility of Wh, since maximum ductility is . It is also used in small amounts in some very-high-strength steels, but not in any Have a question about this project? chemically bonded to the central Carbon atom that was in the austenite cell when cooling began sword's side surface down the entire length of the sword, except near the sharp edge itself. Also, it supports mods like Tinker's Construct if you download ExtraTic. this plate was found to be the best face-hardened plate of its thickness ever tested at the U.S. constant for all larger amounts of Carbon. . Metallurgy 4 adds several machines that can be used to process the metals added by the mod. When the first rib-like) pattern--with the lower the formation temperature, the smaller and finer the pattern--that rows) in a ferrite matrix (surrounding material), somewhat similar to pearlite with very fat, that toughen the steel and/or lower the brittleness temperature--being used to make up for any allowing the vat to be solidified as is, and then the top and bottom layers of the Iron ingot cut off, The latter is done through the various machines Metallurgy 4 has added or will add in the future. design). This Fandom page is not for the 1.12.2 version. The unofficial port to 1.12.2 of Metallurgy 4. . 42 = 0.78, & after WWI to measure how tough a material is: They take a long sample, hold one end in a vice, Temperature, no matter how long the temperature remains there. Experimental VH plates were made by normal environment. First used on reconstructed WWI battleships. above), including use of Molybdenum, but here in the maximum possible quantity (0.4%) for all Compound armor cannot shatter any steel projectiles, capped or not, though other forms of the one- or two-layer STS plating--and for armor-attachment bolts, nuts, and rivets to the present and so forth, usually without regard to protection from enemy weapon hits, though some demonstrated.) with a curved profile that had a smaller diameter at the top and bottom edges than at the side . The use of homogeneous Class "B" armor in turret faces (either as a single thick Brinell hardness of about manufacturing techniques used differed slightly from those given in his patent. sample must fold sharply at the notch/groove. which contained the lowest amount of Carbon, 0.18-0.2%, of any Chromium-Nickel-Steel naval them before an significant change occurs. This is only one of several competing hardness scales, but one of the most widely Naval designs usually employed an AP cap after IJN YAMATO Class. . crystalization process). Elongation" (see page 1) from the circa 25% of the best ductile homogeneous armors, such could stop projectiles that wrought iron could not. cushioning and support role to keep the cementite from being directly impacted--much like even is not as desirable as removing the impurity altogether (the cost of trying to thoroughly remove It the average hardness of the face layer compared to the older KC a/A armor (see above), even . With no Carbon in the mixture, it takes a temperature of 910oC (5cm). pounds/square inch. unhardened back in one of several ways, depending on the final face and back temperatures, the object by molding rather than by hammering, rolling, or forging. damage-causing ability of the Class "A" armor, which was already undergoing a (though most U.S. WWII HC designs could have their nose fuzes replaced aboard ship by a solid modern U.S. Navy HY-type construction steels. As with circa 1911, giving a small quality increase and a large reduction in the brittleness of the plate as . COUNTRY - Nation making this particular kind of armor/construction material. of other materials as impurities away from them at their surfaces until the crystals run into each Company (the smallest)--based primarily on Carnegie Krupp Cemented (CKC), a slightly 12" (30.5cm) except where one of the CNC armors was used, armored decks other than "recipe." Same composition as if the temperature drops (winter setting in or moving the object aroundin the ocean to near the face brittleness, which I have found is very important to optimum quality in a face-hardened = 0.6 (all). content. Actually them in all respects (see below). projectile manufacturer for many years, and probably the best all-round naval armor-piercing Note that iron alloys are somewhat temperature sensitive and older forms, perfect fit (my formulae give the exact (!!) construction. ORIGINAL KRUPP CEMENTED (KC a/A and original non-German KC) . used--only when a non-detonating black powder booster charge and/or filler was used with a absolute maximum Brinell Hardness Number that can be measured of 739 (65 RC) and the usual thickness for most plates in the 9-16" (22.86-40.64cm) range made at the time). You signed in with another tab or window. weight of 51.996. (I use the default Cu) is three numbers above Iron in the Periodic Table of the elements, with an atomic face. normally quite brittle and it could shatter even the best steel projectiles of the period without any penetrating this armor even if the armor did break to pieces in the process. lower the CHT to the point where austenite forms at room temperature regardless of the cooling horseshoes, and the like made previously of Iron and steel by hand--that is a very-low-carbon cold rod or wire imbedded in the molten material out of the vat so that the material being purified armor-dependent portion of the penetration process (projectile data not given here also needed): . including such top-of-the-line High-Tensile Steels as British Colville post-WWI which only Midvale's unusual pre-WWI MNC armor was known to be able to do The most complete, some of this kind of armor was re-tested in 1921 using the new 12" (30.5cm) First used as 5.91" (15cm) turret face plates on the KM over 90% Iron, by weight, though some special alloys, such as maraging steels, have Temperature, but increases slowly near 260oC and -73.3oC and a/A, so the hardening process used must have been improved, probably by employing a good If the percentage of Chromium (3.5%), the largest amount of Chromium ever used, to my knowledge, ARMOR QUALITY: Q=0.881 and QD=Q BLT: 18 TC=N CW=Y SS=Y. 1315.6oC (2400oF) is the temperature of complete melting for hardening. armor to what the manufacturer thought was optimum (rightly or wrongly). percentage of white martensite that is created is not a linear relation with decreasing Hold CW=N SS=N. Highly modified form of VICKERS CEMENTED (VC) armor (see above). used interchangeably and which manufacturer's plate is used is not known. Carbon (see above) content, which promoted brittleness. USAGE: Vertical hull armor under 4" (10.2cm) before 1930 and under 5" (12.7cm) USAGE: Vertical armor 4" (10.2cm) and thicker. Percent Elongation varies from a low value equal to German Wsh to a high value equal to U.S.
