ASM Handbook, Volume 4A is the first in a series of five ASM Handbook volumes covering heat treating. This volume includes 50 articles that address the physical metallurgy of steel heat treatment and thoroughly cover the many steel heat treating processes. Fundamentals of hardness and the use of hardenability as a selection factor are discussed as are the fundamentals of quenching and quenching processes. The volume also discusses annealing, tempering, austempering, and martempering as well as cleaning, subcritical annealing, austenitizing, and quench partitioning. It also presents practical information on surface hardening by applied energy, carburizing, carbonitriding, nitriding, and diffusion coatings.
