High-Carbon Steels: Atlas of Fractographs
This article is an atlas of fractographs that helps in understanding the causes and mechanisms of fracture of high-carbon steels and in identifying and interpreting the morphology of fracture surfaces. The fractographs illustrate the following: torsional fatigue fracture, hydrogen-embrittlement fracture, fatigue crack propagation, and corrosion fatigue of components made from high-carbon steels. The high-carbon steel components include bull gear, drive shaft, power boiler stoker grate, steel wheel, spring wire, suspension spring, automotive engine valve spring, power spring, cantilever-type spring, railroad rail, and seamless drill pipe.
