Page 119 - and soft states of metals," delivered in 1911 before the Institute of Metals. According to Beilby, a surface skin may be built up by mechanical movement, which gives unmistakable evidence that the surface must have passed through a state in which it must have possessed the perfect mobility of a liquid. This surface possesses distinctive properties which differentiate it from the
Page 119 - properties which differentiate it from the substance beneath it. Hardening thus results from the formation at all the internal surfaces of slip or shear of mobile layers similar to those produced on the surface by mechanical movement. These layers only retain their mobility for a brief period, and then solidify in a vitreous, amorphous state, cementing together all of the surfaces of slip or shear throughout the mass.

Page 118 - The microscopic structure of steel hardened by heating through the critical range and quenching is characteristic, but no such structure can be produced in this hard layer by any of the standard reagents commonly used for this purpose. The mechanism of this action has been studied in detail by Beilby. and an interesting résumé of his work will be found in his presidential lecture on "The

This is shown by the inclosed microphotographs, 11 and 12, which show clear-cut veins of ferrite, and welldeveloped lamellar structure in the

Inasmuch as the hard layer is so thin and so difficult to do anything with, no direct evidence has been obtained. This method would best account for the fact that the hard layer is thickest in the firing

Page 126 - The third structure is that of sorbite similar to the original steel, but not showing the granulation of the original. The carbon has still further transformed into the "carbide" state. Had the carbon been completely transformed into "carbide" carbon, the structure would have been that of pearlite. Sorbite is, therefore, a transition form between troostite and pearlite.
