NEW COMPUTER-AIDED METHOD FOR STEEL SELECTION BASED ON HARDENABILITY,
Heat treatment of metals (1996.3 p.63-66)
For specified component properties, a computerised system enables instant precise selection of the optimum structural steel grade for hardening and tempering from many stored on a hardenability database. Unlike the established graphical method based on hardenability, it allows a flexible choice of quenching conditions. The program also calculates optimum tempering temperature and all the resultant mechanical properties.
