Additional Effects of Sulfur on the Fatigue Properties of Low Alloy Steels

In the previous posting, it was shown that, as a result of the presence of elongated manganese sulfide inclusions, the fatigue properties of low alloy steels can exhibit directionally dependent behavior.  Fatigue properties obtained in a test direction transverse to … Continue reading

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
