This article focuses on the specific features of carbon steels and alloy steels that are pertinent to heating by induction for warm and hot working processes. It provides a detailed account of the effects of various microstructures on austenitization kinetics for AISI 1045 steels. The article explains the factors to be considered for induction heating of various steel alloys. It describes the temperature and compositional issues that should be considered in the forging of steels that are induction heated.
