Methods for raising the impact toughness of steel 14Kh17N2 in the direction transverse to deformation


The effect of heat treatment modes used to raise the impact toughness in the direction transverse to that of deformation on the structure of steel 14Kh17N2 is studied. The effect of δ-ferrite on the structure and properties of the steel is determined. A method of heat treatment and practical recommendations for improving the impact toughness of preforms from steel 14Kh17N2 are suggested.
