Mechanical Properties versus Carburization Depth

In this article we will examine the relationship between ultimate tensile strength, fatigue strength, and elongation versus the depth of carburization. The data for this comparison was taken from several iterations discussed in previous articles and shown in Table 1. … Continue reading

Through Carburized 20MoCr4 Steel, 26-Hour Atmosphere Cycle versus 36-Hour Vacuum Cycle

In this article we will compare two through-carburized 20MoCr4 steel iterations. The composition of the 20MoCr4 steel is shown below in Table 1. Iteration #137 was atmosphere through carburized using the traditional 927 °C, twenty-six hour cycle which provides a … Continue reading

Comparison of Case Hardening by Carburizing Versus Surface Induction Hardening

In past postings, the case and core properties of case hardened steels have been discussed.  These discussions have included the fatigue properties of both carburized and surface induction hardened steels. Carburizing is usually employed on carbon or low alloy steels … Continue reading
