    Abstract: Secondary graphitization annealing is often used to obtain 100% ferrite matrix in the production of ductile iron. The volume expansion of pearlite will occur during secondary graphitization annealing. So far, whether this expansion can affect the micro-shrinkage porosity between the austenite rings surrounding the graphite nodule during solidificat... Show More
