Abstract: 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.…
