Abstract
A deep knowledge of micromechanical properties of each constitutive phase of cemented carbides is crucial to improve their performance on the basis of microstructural design optimization. In the present work, a systematic experimental procedure has been followed to determine the intrinsic hardness of individual WC and (W,Ti,Ta,Nb)C particles, as well as that of the metallic binder, within a WC-Co composite containing a solid solution of mixed carbide as a third phase. In doing so, massive nanoin...
