X-ray Diffraction Analysis of Severely Cold Deformed Hypereutectoid Steel Wire
Hypereutectoid steel wire rod of diameter 6.40 mm is lead patented in lead bath of an electric powered furnace and then it is cold drawn through converging conical dies in a die sequence up to 2.50 mm diameter. The drawn wires subjected to different true strain are analysed using line profile X-ray diffraction methods. The classical Williamson-Hall plot as well as modified Williamson-Hall plot of drawn wire specimens of different true strain is plotted. The theoretical as well as experimental value of q is evaluated. The q is a parameter which depends up on elastic constant of the crystal and type of dislocations. The changes in nature of dislocations from edge dislocations to screw dislocations are calculated against true strain and are verified by scanned electron microscopy’s micrograph of drawn wire.
