Abstract

•The beneficial effect of molybdenum in reducing brittleness in manganese steels were tested by adding 2-4% molybdenum in proportions to manganese alloys betweer, 10-14?~. The specimens of the alloys were solution treated under vacuum furnace at 9')0°C, '10)0°C and 11)0°C for 1 hour and then air cooled. Furthermore, these were tested for mechanical properties a.t room temperature. The broken specimens were examined by using the scanning electron microscope to ascertain that the mode of fractographs of the alloys solution treated at higher temperature, was intergranular at lower molybdenum content. The beneficial effect of a larger amount of molybdenum (1about l1~~), in re.ducing the susceptibility to intergranular embrittlement, was noticed in· the alloy. iuggestions were made in this paper on how a larger amount of molybdenum (about 4?.\) was found to prevent embrittlement in high slrength manganese s tee 1.
