RELATIONS OF TENSILE STRENGTH AND HARDNESS OF STEEL,
BUREAU OF RECLAMATION DENVER COLO CHEMICAL ENGINEERING BRANCH
Pagination or Media Count:
Data relating Brinell Hardness Number to tensile strength of plain carbon and low-alloy steel under 5 percent alloy taken from ASM Handbook, Volume 2, 8th Edition, p. 670 1964, have been used to develop three rather exact mathematical equations giving the hardness as a function of tensile strength. These equations have been employed to set up tabular data where the increment in the independent variable is constant thus leading to simpler and more reliable interpolations. It is anticipated that the data can be used for wrought steel products from tensile strengths of 50,000 psi up to about 265,000 psi for reinforcing bars for prestressed concrete. Author
