Abstract

"Six AISI C 1065 steels were heat treated and tensile tested in order to evaluate their ductility at high strength levels. Heat treating and tensile testing procedures were developed for use working with these steels at tensile strengths of 300,000 psi and higher. The austenitizing procedure in the hardening operation was found to affect the strength and ductility of the high strength samples. Rapidly heating to the austenitizing temperature followed by an immediate quench produced better properties than slow heating followed by a soaking period before the quench. However, it was concluded that the carbon contents of the steels studied (0.64% - 0.72%) was too high to realize simultaneously very high strength and appreciable ductility"--Abstract, page ii.
