Abstract


The various mechanical and wear properties of alloys and metals are investigated by acknowledging the heat treatment and various carburization processes. In this investigation, the mechanical and wear properties of mild steel carburized were studied at different ranges of temperature i.e. 800, 870 and 940 degree Celsius. The aim of the present study was to analyze the effect of carburization temperatures at different scales and conditions on mechanical and wear properties of carburized mild steel. The above different temperatures were tempered at 500 degree Celsius for half an hour and then subjected for different tests such as hardness test, tensile stress test, abrasive wear test and toughness test. The results after experimental work showed that mechanical and wear properties are improved and these properties increase with increase in the carburization temperature. It was analyzed from experimental calculations through proper investigations that the toughness property decreased with the increase in the carburization temperature. So, 940 degree Celsius is best suited for mechanical and wear properties of mild steel because it gives highest tensile strength, hardness and wear resistance. It can be concluded from the experimental results of the present study that hardness, tensile strength and wear resistance of the mild steels can be improved by a simple heat treatment of solid carburizing process.

Author Keywords: Carburization, tempering temperature, soak time, tensile stress, hardness test.
