magnetism in steel

Dear Sirs,

For a customer we inspect steel rolls (3% chrome) for cold rolling steel strip. In the heavily stessed zones of the roll, where the roll material has probably been deformed, magnetism is introduced. This magnetism is finely distributed and the magnetism extends at least several millimeters into the roll body.

We would like to know the cause of this effect.
- Could magnetism be introduced into steel by local deformation?
- Or is it likely that an external magnetic field can be 'frozen' into the material by deformation?

We would appreciate any help to understand this fenomenon or hear from any cases with similar effects observed.

Thank you,
Lismar Engineering,
Elmar van den Elzen

Re: magnetism in steel
Dear Elamr,

knowing the chrome content, I suppose that the steel is a ferromagnetic material.

It is well known that magnetostriction occures in ferromagnetic materials.
This means that the shape and length of the matrial changes if the magnetization changes and vice versa.
From my point of view this is what you are observing.

For more infromation please look for articles on:
magnetostriction, magnetomechanical effect, magnetoelastic effect
(different names for the same physical effect !)

Best regards

Dag

Thomas

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
