What is Inconel 600
The Inconel 600 is a nickel-chromium based alloy also known as alloy 600 or UNS N06600. It is an oxidation and corrosion resistant alloy used in extreme environments at high temperatures and pressures. The Inconel composition is given below:
|Ni + Co||Cr||Fe||C||Mn||S||Si||Cu|
|72.0 min||14.0-17.0||6.0-10||0.15 max||1.00 Max||0.015 max||0.50 max||0.50 max|
The mechanical properties of this alloy is given for tension and compression tests considering temperature and strain rate.
Tensile properties of the Inconel 600 alloy are given below:
Strain Rate Sensitivity
Compression deformation is one of the typical processes used during forming of metal parts. Thus understanding the properties of the Inconel 600 alloy is critical for the proper characterization of the properties of the final part.
