Effects of Sulfur and Overloads on the Fatigue Performance of Low-Alloy Steels

In earlier posts, the effect of sulfur on the fatigue performance of low-alloy steel was examined.  It was noted that sulfur is present as manganese sulfides in steels, and these sulfides are highly plastic at hot working temperatures.  During hot … Continue reading

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

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

It is well known that sulfur has a major impact on some of the properties of low alloy steels.  Sulfur is present in the form of manganese sulfides, which are highly plastic at hot working temperatures.  As a result, during … Continue reading
