"A carbon steel, W1, and four other alloy tool steels, namely, A2, H13, D3, and M2, were spheroidized by five different procedures. Any modification made in the treatments for an individual steel were suggested by the results obtained with these five procedures. The hardnesses and microstructures obtained were compared with steel samples annealed at a tool steel mill. The response given by different steels to various methods of spheroidization was studied. It was found that A2, W1, and D3 steels responded the best to the cycling method whereas the best response to the isothermal annealing was given by H13 and M2 steels. The effect of neutron irradiation on the spheroidization of W1 steel was studied and it was concluded that the radiation damage in W1 steel did not affect the rate of spheroidization"--Abstract, page ii.
