The behaviour of fracture mode and intermediate temperature embrittlement of ferritic spheroidal graphite cast iron is influenced by many factors. From the experimental results, intermediate temperature embrittlement can be considered to be dominated by dynamic strain ageing and the triaxial stress field developed in the ferrite matrix amongst the graphite particles. In order to understand the effect of dynamic strain ageing on high-temperature properties, tensile properties, push-pull low-cycle fatigue properties, rotary bending fatigue properties and creep-rupture properties were investigated from room temperature to 500° C. It was found that all the properties investigated were influenced by dynamic strain ageing. The intermediate temperature embrittlement of ferritic spheroidal graphite cast iron found in different load conditions is reported.
