Title: A revolution in metallurgy and Heat Treatment of Steel
This project proposes a new heat treatment process for tool steel (ASSAB 705M). Strength and impact energy are tested and compared with conventional isothermal tempering, successive tempering and modified tempering. Experimental results are presented and the advantages of the new method are discussed. Results show that the best combination of strength and ductility can be achieved through the use of the proposed heat treatment method.
