Processing and characterization of functionally designed cellular cemented carbides

Keywords and Phrases

Fibrous monolith

Abstract

"In an effort to improve the performance of petroleum drill bits produced by Smith Bits (a division of Smith International, Inc., Houston, TX), a series of cemented carbide materials with an engineered architecture were developed. This engineered architecture is comprised of a brittle wear resistant WC-Co- cell surrounded by a ductile cobalt cell boundary. This structure is meant to mitigate catastrophic failure of the cemented carbide inserts on petroleum drill bits"--Abstract, leaf iv.
