Failure Analysis of Heat Treated Steel Components
Failure Analysis of Heat Treated Steel Components discusses failures and how to determine their root cause. The book focuses on steel failures that arise during thermal processing, such as forging, casting, heat treatment, and welding. The metallurgy of the failure identification is also examined. Topics covered include component design, mechanisms of failures in heat treated steel parts, general aspects of failure analysis, failures in steel forging, failures from the casting process, sources of failures in carburized and carbonitrided components, fatigue fracture of nitride layers, steel heat treatment failures due to quenching, steel failures due to tempering and isothermal heat treatment, failure analysis in tool steels, case studies of steel component failures in aerospace applications, failure analysis of powder metal steel components, induction hardening, and failure analysis of steel welds.
