Page 126 - C. 3rd., that cast steel is made exceedingly brittle by burning and cooling in air. Reheating to 900 C. greatly improves the burnt steel but it is less ductile than the unburnt material. Reheating, and forging to smaller section and annealing at 900 C. more than completely restores the original strength and ductility, as was proved by two sets of carefully conducted trials.
Page 126 - ... steel with 0'4 per cent. carbon after burning has its ductility greatly reduced. On reheating the burnt steel to 900 C. its good properties are completely restored. On reheating and forging it is made more ductile than it was before burning, and but slightly lower in tenacity than the original steel after reheating to 900 C.
Page 90 - ... One other peculiarity in the rectangularly brittle material was that in every case the lines of weakness were at an angle of 45 to the direction in which the steel had been rolled ; and although fracture could be readily effected at these lines of weakness or cleavage, the steel could be bent over and hammered close without fracture when the bending stress was applied at an angle of 45 to these lines of weakness. Photograph No. 24 illustrates this. Another kind of brittleness having the character...
