Steel and its Heat Treatment: Bofors Handbook describes the fundamental metallographic concepts, materials testing, hardenability, heat treatment, and dimensional changes that occur during the hardening and tempering stages of steel. The book explains the boundaries separating the grain contents of steel, which are the low-angle grain boundaries, the high-angle grain boundaries, and the twinning boundaries. Engineers can determine the hardenability of steel through the Grossman test or the Jominy End-Quench test. Special hardening and tempering methods are employed for steel that are going to be fabricated into tools. The different methods of hardening are manual hardening for a small surface (the tip of a screw); spin hardening for objects with a rotational symmetry (gears with 5 modules or less); and progressive hardening (or a combination with spin hardening) for flat surfaces. The hardening and tempering processes cause changes in size and shape of the substance. The text presents examples of dimensional changes during the hardening and tempering of tool steels such as those occurring in plain-carbon steels and low-alloy steels. The book is a source of reliable information needed by engineers, tool and small equipment designers, as well as by metallurgists, structural, and mechanical engineers.

Practical Heat Treating

ISBN: 9781615031108
Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

What is heat treatment? This book describes heat treating technology in clear, concise, and nontheoretical language. It is an excellent introduction and guide for design and manufacturing engineers, technicians, students, and others who need to understand why heat treatment is specified and how different processes are used to obtain desired properties. The new Second Edition has been extensively updated and revised by Jon. L. Dossett, who has more than forty years of experience in theat treating operations and management. The update adds important information about new processes and process control techniques that have been developed or refined in recent years. Helpfull appendices have been added on decarburization of steels, boost/diffues cycles for carburizing, and process verification.

Genre: Steel

Heat Treatment Of Steels As An Art To Improve Their Service Performance Has Been Practised Ever Since It Started To Be Used As Tools And Weapons.However, The Scientific Basis Of Heat Treatment Of Steels Became More Apparent Only In The First Half Of This Century And Still Some Gaps Remain In Its Complete Understanding.Earlier Books On Heat Treatment Of Steels Mainly Emphasised The Art And The Empirically Arrived Principles Of Heat Treatment. In The Last Few Decades, Our Understanding Of Phase Transformations And Mechanical Behaviour Of Steels, And Consequently Of Heat Treatment Of Steels, Has Considerably Increased.In This Book On Principles Of Heat Treatment Of Steels The Emphasis Is On The Scientific Principles Behind The Various Heat Treatment Processes Of Steels. Though It Is Expected That The Reader Has Sufficient Background In Phase Transformations And Mechanical Behaviour Of Materials, First Few Chapters Review These Topics With Specific Reference To Steels. Basic Principles Of Various Heat Treatment Processes Of Steels Including Surface Hardening Processes, Are Then Covered In Sufficient Detail To Give A Good Overall Understanding Of These Processes. The Detail Engineering Aspects Are, However, Omitted. These Are Easily Available In Various Handbooks On Heat Treatment. The Book Also Covers Heat Treatment Of Tool Steels And Cast Irons.The Book Has Been Well Written And Can Be Used A Textbook On Heat Treatment For Undergraduate Students. It Is Also A Good Reference Book For Teachers And Researchers In This Area And Engineers In The Industry.
