... Abstract Stress-relief heat treating of steel is the uniform heating of a structure to a suitable temperature below the transformation range, holding at this temperature for a predetermined period of time, followed by uniform cooling. This article provides information on the sources of residual...

... permanent deformation or creep of steel due to its own weight during enamel firing. The sag resistance of steel is related to its strength at elevated temperatures and to the temperature at which the steel starts to transform from ferrite to austenite on heating. In general, the higher the strength and the...

EISBN: 978-1-62708-199-3
... Abstract Heat treating of stainless steel produces changes in physical condition, mechanical properties, and residual stress level and restores maximum corrosion resistance when that property has been adversely affected by previous fabrication or heating. This article focuses on annealing of...

EISBN: 978-1-62708-199-3
... Abstract All tool steels are heat treated to develop specific combinations of wear resistance, resistance to deformation or breaking under loads, and resistance to softening at elevated temperature. This article describes recommended heat treating practices, such as normalizing, annealing...

... atoms such as molybdenum and aluminum was observed during plasma nitriding of titanium α + β alloys ( Ref 16 , 64 , 65 ). The high nitriding temperature of titanium α + β alloys permits the use of it in lieu of the heat treating processes such as quenching and aging as well as cyclic treatment ( Ref...

... hardened by heat treatment. Only a relatively small portion of the total number of nonferrous alloys responds significantly to hardening by heat treatment (see also the article “Heat Treatable Nonferrous Alloys” in this Volume). The most common heat treating procedure for hardening of nonferrous alloys...

... Abstract Cast irons may be compared with steels in their reactions to hardening. However, because cast irons (except white iron) contain graphite and substantially higher percentages of silicon, they require higher austenitizing temperatures. This article describes the effect of heat treatment...
