Fatigue Performance As Measured By Fatigue Strength Quenched and Tempered Steels

In a recent posting, a comparison of the fatigue properties for normalized steels (163-259 BHN) showed that the strain-life curves fell within a rather narrow band, especially in the long-life regime.  It was pointed out that, under a circumstance such … Continue reading

Looking at a Comparison of As-Rolled and Normalized Properties

While medium carbon bar steels are often used in the as-hot rolled condition, some applications call for normalizing the hot rolled product. Normalizing consists of re-austenitizing the steel followed by ambient air cooling. This often results in improvements in ductility … Continue reading
