Comparison of the Case and Core Properties of Carburized Steels

In recent postings, the strain-controlled fatigue properties of the high-hardness case and low-hardness core of induction hardened steels were compared.  It was shown that at short lives, the softer core outperformed the high-hardness case.  At long life, the fatigue properties … Continue reading

Comparison of the Case and Core Properties of Induction Hardened Steels

Medium and high carbon bar steels are often used in the induction hardened condition for applications such as axles and shafts. Induction hardening is a surface hardening heat treatment whereby a component is rapidly heated for a short period of … Continue reading
