Heat Treatment of Gears: A Practical Guide for Engineers
Chapter 2: Properties of Iron
The properties of steel are affected markedly as the percentage of carbon varies. This chapter describes the properties of alloys of iron and carbon, including a review of the iron-carbon phase diagram and, in particular, the portion of the diagram relevant to carbon steels. It addresses the processes involved in the transformation (decomposition) of austenite to achieve various microstructures.
