Is AISI 4140 Magnetic?
SAE-AISI 4140 steel belongs to the iron alloys classification, while Type 3 magnetic alloy belongs to the nickel alloys. There are 28 material properties with values for both materials. For each property being compared, the top bar is SAE-AISI 4140 steel and the bottom bar is Type 3 magnetic alloy.
Is AISI 4140 a stainless steel?
Austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304) and low alloy steel (AISI 4140) possess a good combination of mechanical properties, formability, weldability, and resistance to stress corrosion cracking and other forms of corrosion , .
What is the yield strength of 4140 steel?
Yield strengths range from 110 ksi through 140 ksi, but we can temper it to. other strength levels. When compared with standard 4140 heat treated to. the same tensile and yield strengths, 4140HW achieves significantly higher. toughness, as measured by impact strength (see Figure 9).
How big is a MIL-A-46100 ballistic steel plate?
MIL-A-46100 Dynamic Armor 46100® steel plate is a high hardness ballistic steel plate product that is available in thicknesses from 3/16” through 2” (4.7mm through 50mm). This specialty plate product is specifically designed for lightweight armor applications that require maximum resistance to ballistic threats.
Why does a dynamic mil a 46100 steel plate spring back?
Because of the enhanced mechanical properties of this plate, the bending forces required to form the plate will be greater and more plate “springback” can be expected to occur.
Where can I find Mil-dtl-46100e Table 4?
Requirements are specified in MIL-DTL-46100E Table 4. Special tolerances are available (subject to SWC approval). Testing is always performed at the US Army Aberdeen testing facility or a US Government approved test facility. Specific requirements are listed in Appendix A of Military Specifications 46100E.
