How strong is HY-80 steel?

How strong is HY-80 steel?

The “HY” steels are designed to possess a high yield strength (strength in resisting permanent plastic deformation). HY-80 is accompanied by HY-100 and HY-130 with each of the 80, 100 and 130 referring to their yield strength in ksi (80,000 psi, 100,000 psi and 130,000 psi).

What is HY-80 metal?

HY 80 is a high yield steel with a minimum yield strength of 80 ksi. While many steels offer high yield strength, HY 80 also offers exceptionally high impact strength as well. This combination makes HY 80 unique among steels. This material is used extensively in marine defense and petrochemical applications.

Is HY-80 heat treated?

Heat treatment is not required for HY-80 steel as it is supplied in quenched and tempered conditions. If necessary, it may be heated at 649°C (1200°F) for 1 h followed by slow furnace cooling and air cooling.

How hard is HY-80?

HY-80 is a high yield strength (minimum of 80 ksi) , low carbon, low alloy steel with nickel, molybdenum and chromium. It has excellent weldability and notch toughness along with good ductility even in welded sections.

What are US submarines made of?

High-strength alloyed steel is still the main material for submarines today, with 250–350 metres (820 to 1,148 feet) depth limit, which cannot be exceeded on a military submarine without sacrificing other characteristics. To exceed that limit, a few submarines were built with titanium hulls.

Is HY-80 Magnetic?

HyMu 80 is a magnetic shielding alloy that’s comprised of a range of nickel iron alloys. It is 80 percent nickel-iron-molybdeum and its main characteristic includes high permeability. It’s useful for shielding against static or low frequency magnetic fields.

How thick is the shell of a submarine?

4 Steel plates, approximately 2-3 in (5.1-7.6 cm) thick, are obtained from steel manufacturers.

Are submarines waterproof?

Most submarines have two hulls, one inside the other, to help them survive. The outer hull is waterproof, while the inner one (called the pressure hull) is much stronger and resistant to immense water pressure. The strongest submarines have hulls made from tough steel or titanium.

Can a submarine surface through ice?

Also, while some submarines in the Arctic have features to help surface through the ice, they still cannot surface through ice that is greater than three meters (nine feet) thick. Submarines that are not ice-strengthened can only surface through ice that is less than one meter (three feet) thick.

What is hy130 steel used for?

HY-130 Steel HY130, This quenched and tempered low-carbon alloy steel finds uses as pressure vessels, heavy construction equipment, and in large steel structures. It has high tensile strength (yield and ultimate), good ductility, notch toughness, atmospheric

Does welding affect fracture toughness of HY-130 steel weld metals?

The fracture toughness of HY-130 steel weld metals and base metal was investigated using 1T compact ten­ sile tests. The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of various weld­ ing procedures on the fracture toughness of as-deposited HY-130 steel weld metals compared to rolled base metal.

Where can I find hiduron 130?

Hiduron 130 can be found in everything from a plane’s landing bearings to sub-sea clamps. Continental Steel sources and distributes Hiduron 130 in bars and sections. As always Continental Steel’s entire supply of Hiduron 130 meets or exceeds all applicable industry standards.
