Physical and Mechanical Properties of Cast Irons
Physical Properties Important physical properties such as thermal conductivity and damping capacity of cast irons are given in Tables 11.10 to 11.12. Thermal conductivity is influenced by the microstructure of cast irons. Since graphite exhibits the highest thermal conductivity of all phases, gray iron has the better thermal conductivity in the family of cast irons. Again, in gray irons, thermal conductivity of graphite parallel to the basal plane is approximately four times that perp…
