Abstract:

The article deals with the forgeability of the Soviet martensitic and semiaustenitic steels. For comparison, a medium-carbon low-alloy steel was tested along with the others. Forgeability was evaluated on the basis of results of tensile, compression, and impact tests at temperatures of 600-1300 C. Indications are that the SovietsARE AT LEAST ATTEMPTING TO EMPLOY THEIR PRECIPITATION-HARDENABLE STEELS FOR HEAVY FORGINGS. The article also makes known for the first time the complete chemical compositions of 3 of their steels. Author
