Tag: Effects of Alloying Elements Steel Alloys

Plain carbon steels can be given a great range of properties by heat treatment and by working; but addition of alloying elements greatly extends those properties or  makes the heat-treating operations easier and simpler. For example, combined high tensile strength and toughness, corrosion resistance, high-speed cutting, and many other specialized purposes require alloy steels. However, the most important effect of alloying is the
