Abstract

Oriented sulphides parallel to the electric current direction have been experimentally observed when a pulsed electric current is passed through medium carbon steels with MnS inclusions. Two different configurations of sulphides occur after the application of the electric current: namely, oriented elongated ellipsoidal particles and oriented chain-like particles composed of two or three small spherical sulphides. Theoretical analysis indicates that this phenomenon is associated with minimization of the electrical resistance of the material.
