Thermochemical Treatment

Computation by known models of hardening by particles of excess phase is used to determine dependences of the shear yield strength of carburized and nitrided layers in complexly alloyed steels on the size and quantitative characteristics of carbides and nitrides.

Key words

thermochemical treatment carburizing nitriding heat-resistant steels precipitation hardening
