The uncracked pipe consisted of soft steel that obviously was made for this purpose, while the cracked pipe consisted of a strongly-hardenable steel which contained not only more carbon and manganese than customary but also a considerable amount of chromium. Therefore, the damage was caused by a mix-up...

Multiple, branched cracking was present in a longitudinal section through the failed end of one bolt, typical of hydrogen-assisted SCC in hardened steels. Chlorides were detected within the cracks and on the fracture surface. The failed bolts were replaced...

.... Dimensions alone do not determine a design. A designer must consider the type of steel and whether it will be hardened by quenching in water, oil, or air. Generally, liquid-hardened tools require a conservative design; air-hardened tools can tolerate some features that are improper for liquid quenching...

... HRC, but, in the case where the tool can be used to strike another steel tool, such as a wedge, the lower limit is reduced to about 45 HRC. At this hardness, that is, 45 HRC, the strain-hardening exponent is greater, the deformation more wide spread, and thus the tool tends to mushroom, thereby...
