Perspectives on research on the formation of nodular graphite in cast iron

Östberg, Gustaf LU (2006) In Materials & Design 27(10). p.1007-1015
Abstract
Current views on the mechanism of the formation of nodular graphite in cast iron are examined with respect to their explanatory power. The aim of this review is to find, if possible, a rationale for further studies. Arguments are presented in favour of a comprehensive model, encompassing the characteristics of both the nucleation and the growth of the graphite. A plea is made for focusing on the most salient features rather than on phenomenological aspects. (C) 2005 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
