Effect of alloying elements on the resistance to tempering of low-carbon pearlitic steels
- 62 Downloads
The temperature dependence of the specific effect of chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium on the resistance to tempering of low-carbon pearlitic steel is characterized by a curve with a peak whose position on the temperature scale rises from chromium to molybdenum and vanadium. With increasing tempering time the specific effect of each of these elements first increases and then decreases after reaching a high point.
With increasing chromium concentrations from 1 to 3% its specific effect on the resistance to tempering decreases monotonically.
