In this study, the Vickers microhardness profile of ferritic and austenitic functionally graded steel produced by electroslag remelting process has been modeled by artificial neural networks. To produce functionally graded steels, two slices of plain carbon steel and austenitic stainless steels were spot-welded and used as electroslag remelting electrode. Functionally graded steel containing graded layers of ferrite and austenite may be fabricated via diffusion of alloying elements during the remelting stage.…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
