Abstract
Fe-Al alloys with different Al contents were prepared with commercially pure Fe and Al in a vacuum induction furnace. The hardness of the Fe-Al alloys with different Al content and heat treatments was measured using a Vickers-hardness tester of HVS-5, applying a load of 9.8 N and keeping for 8 s. In order to detect the lattice strain of the specimens, X-ray diffraction (XRD) experiments with CuK radiation ( =1.5406 ) were completed at room temperature for Fe62Al38 specimen with different heat treatments. It was shown that the hardness of the furnace-cooled Fe-Al alloys increases with increasing Al content when Al content is less than 23 (at.)% Al and then decreases when more than 23 (at.)% Al. The furnace-cooled Fe77Al23 alloy has the largest hardness value among all furnace-cooled alloys. The effect of quenching on the hardness of the Fe77Al23 and Fe71Al29 alloys can be obviously observed. The hardness of the Fe62Al38 alloy increases obviously with increasing quenching temperature. The hardening effect resulted from thermal vacancies can be reduced by the ageing at low temperature.
