Part of the book: Light Metal Alloys Applications
This chapter describes different rapidly solidified processing routes of soft magnetic alloys and their properties and applications in different areas. Section-2 explains the details of process mechanism. The functions of different alloying elements are discussed with the alloy design of soft magnetic alloys in section-3. The structure-property correlation is described in section-4. Section-5 highlights different types of rapidly solidified soft magnetic alloys, like high permeability alloys, high induction alloys, Fe-6.5 wt% Si steel and GMI alloys. In the last section-6, the applications of different types of soft magnetic alloys are mentioned.
