Hardness versus Strength

There is a very good relationship between hardness and strength for steel. If the hardness is known the tensile strength can be estimated, and the reverse is also true. This relationship is valid for tensile strength but not for yield … Continue reading

Strength and Fatigue Life versus Carbon Content at High Hardness (60 HRC)

The strength, fatigue and hardness data for several iterations with a high hardness level, around 60 HRC are shown in Table 1. The steels in these iterations are both plain carbon and low alloy grades with carbon contents ranging from … Continue reading
