This comprehensive resource provides practical, modern approaches to steel heat treatment topics such as sources of residual stress and distortion, hardenability prediction, modeling, effects of steel alloy chemistry on heat treatment, quenching, carburizing, nitriding, vacuum heat treatment, metallography, and process equipment. Containing recent data and developments from international experts, the Steel Treatment Handbook discusses the principles of heat treatment; quenchants, quenching systems, and quenching technology; strain gauge procedures, X-ray diffraction, and other residual stress measurement methods; carburizing and carbonitriding; powder mettalurgy technology; metallography and physical property determination; ecological regulations and safety standards; and more. Well illustrated with nearly 1000 tables, equations, figures, and photographs, the Steel Heat Treatment Handbook is an excellent reference for materials, manufacturing, heat treatment, maintenance, mechanical, industrial, process and quality control, design, and research engineers; department or corporate metallurgists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.Examination of the left-hand side of the upper diagram in Figure 18 for the steel in question shows that martensite will form on air ... A special feature of this type of CCT diagram is that the hardenability of the steel can be assessed at a glance.
