The effect of heat input on mass fraction of nanocomponents fed into the weld pool

It is shown that surfacing with feeding Nano oxides or Nano carbides into the weld pool leads to significant increase the wear resistance of deposited metal. Meanwhile, the information available in the literature on the optimal concentrations of Nano components corresponds only to specific surfacing conditions. Other surfacing conditions require additional experimental studies to determine optimal concentrations under these new conditions. Theoretical studies revealed that a change in the heat input of surfacing is accompanied by a change in the volume and mass of the weld pool, which leads to the changes in the mass concentrations of Nano components. It is shown that, the volume and mass of the weld pool may change almost by 3 times, and the mass percentage of Nano components by 2 times A method has been proposed for determining the mass fraction of Nano components in the weld pool at different heat inputs of surfacing. The experimental studies confirmed analytical predictions. The use of the proposed technique will make it possible to spread the technology of surfacing with feeding of Nano components into the weld pool without additional experimental studies.
