4140 steel ductile brittle transition temperature

Alloy Selection

Some steel alloys shift from a strong, ductile failure to a low toughness brittle failure at cold temperatures. The temperature where this shift occurs is the "ductile-brittle transition temperature. The ice cleat will be exposed to sub-zero temperatures (-50F). The 4340 alloy is ductile down to -150F.

Why Cold Steel Is Brittle

The temperature at which this drop in toughness occurs is called the “Ductile to Brittle Transition Temperature” (DBTT) which is about -75°C for the 0.01% carbon steel above. Each steel has an “upper shelf” toughness at higher temperatures and a “lower shelf” toughness at low temperatures.

Ductile Brittle Transition Temperature

The ductile brittle transition temperature is the minimum temperature in which a given material has the ability to absorb a specific amount of energy without fracturing. As temperatures decrease, a material’s ability to deform in a ductile matter decreases.

Ductile-to-Brittle Transition

Below the brittle to ductile transition temperature (BDTT), the fatigue crack growth response of the ceramics will not be significantly different from that at ambient temperatures and the micromechanisms will be the same as those discussed in Section 4.07.5.2. However, above the BDTT, the fatigue crack growth micromechanisms and rates are significantly different from those observed at room-temperature.

The Ductile to Brittle Transition

method is to define the ductile to brittle transition in terms of a specified amount of ductile and brittle fracture. For this method the proportion of ductile-brittle fracture is estimated by examining the fracture surface. A 50% ductile-brittle fracture surface is the criteria often used to define the ductile to brittle transition temperature. Figure 1 illustrates several methods for measuring the transition temperature.

Temperature and Stainless Steel

Carbon steels and ferritic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels undergo a transition from ductile to brittle failure as the temperature decreases. Although the strength of these materials is unaffected or may increase as the temperature decreases, they may fail without warning, particularly under impact loads.

Ductility

The ductile–brittle transition temperature (DBTT), nil ductility temperature (NDT), or nil ductility transition temperature of a metal is the temperature at which the fracture energy passes below a predetermined value (for steels typically 40 J for a standard Charpy impact test). DBTT is important since, once a material is cooled below the DBTT, it has a much greater tendency to shatter on impact instead of …

AISI 4130 is a chromium-molybdenum steel that is in general (aviation) use due to its well established heat-treating practices and processing techniques. AISI 4135 has a slightly higher carbon version of AISI 4130. AISI 4140 is a chromium-molybdenum steel that can be heat treated to higher strength levels or in thicker sections than AISI 4130.
