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

Effect of Continuous Casting Practice on the Case and Core Properties of Carburized Alloy Steels

In the previous posting, the strain-controlled fatigue properties of the high-hardness case and low-hardness core of carburized SAE 4620 steel were compared.  It was shown that at short lives, the softer core exhibited better properties than the high-hardness case.  At … Continue reading
