The Effect of Bainite on Strength and Fatigue in Through-Carburized SAE 8620 Test Bars

A case microstructure may consist of martensite, retained austenite and bainite, and depends upon alloy and cooling rate. The impact of bainite on fatigue is not well known.  Sometimes carburized parts are intentionally austempered to increase the amount of bainite … Continue reading

Fatigue Properties of Case-Carburized SAE 8620

In recent postings, the strain-controlled fatigue properties of the high-hardness case and the lower-hardness core of carburized low-alloy steels were compared.  The properties of the case were developed through simulation by diffusing carbon completely through fatigue-specimen blanks. The properties of … Continue reading
