RE: Bronze (One-legged Support) Horse Structure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Carpenter 20 is a very good choice.  Do you have a ball park idea on cost.
The last I knew, it was VERY expensive.

>From "Selecting Carpenter Stainless Steels" Copyright 1983 by Carpenter
Technology Corp.:

Type 630 (17 Cr - 4 Ni) is a martensitic stainless w/ good corrosion
resistance (approaches that of Type 304 for most environments).  Yield
strength varies from 87 ksi for temper H 1150-M to 183 ksi for H 900.
Ultimate tensile strength 123 ksi to 198 ksi.  Elongation 22% to 15% for the
same respective tempers.  Charpy V-notch toughness 100 to 16 ft-lbs.

	Well, 'tis been an interesting research project.. still in progress.
	I've learned so far is that stainless steel is the material of
choice for
	the support structure.  Neglecting the bronze shell, I need a 2"
	bar to extend through the bent legs into the foundation (using 304L
	stainless steel.. Fy=35 ksi).

	I've been researching higher strength materials because it would be
	to get a 1 1/4" diameter bar to work, as it would fit through the
leg joints
	without modifying the structure.  Anyone know anything about AISI
No. 630
	(commonly called 17-4) precipitation hardened stainless steel?
Looks to
	have much higher strength.   It is bendable, weldable, ductile..  I
	been able to locate a good source of this info.

	I appreciate all the responses so far.  You all are quite a valuable
