Mechanical Properties of Mild Steel after Cold and Warm High-Speed Forging

  • K. Osakada
  • M. Oyane
  • H. Tanaka


A 0.03% carbon steel was forged in high-and low-speed forging machines at temperatures between --78 and 600°C. Results of tensile, hardness and Charpy impact tests are presented. The effect of deformation speed and temperature on workhardening and the optimum temperature of high-speed warm forging are discussed.
