Abstract:

This monograph is a revision of the previous NBS Monograph 18. Its purpose is to provide an understanding of the heat treatment of iron and steels, principally to those unacquainted with this subject. The basic principles involved in the heat treatment of these materials are presented in simplified form.. General heat treatment procedures are given for annealing, normalizing, hardening, tempering, case hardening, surface hardening, and special treatments such as austempering, ausforming, martempering and cold treatment. Chemical compositions, heat treatments, and some properties and uses are presented for structural steels, tool steels, stainless and heat-resisting steels, precipitation-hardenable stainless steels and nickel-maraging steels.
