Carbon Steel Heat Treating - Online Metallurgy Training

Steel Heat Treating

Annealing, normalizing, and through hardening are common heat treatments used to modify carbon and low-alloy steel microscopic structures in order to meet strength, hardness, ductility, and toughness requirements. Understanding the effects of steel composition and heat treating temperature and time on steel microstructure is important to get the mechanical properties you need in steel components.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn about the different steel heat treatments and the effects of heat treating process conditions and alloy composition on carbon steel microstructure, strengths and hardness. Also, you’ll learn about steel hardenability, the effects of alloy composition on hardenability, and how hardenability affects heat treating process considerations.

A pdf document of the webinar slides will be available for downloading. You will have 14-days access to the webinar video.

What you will learn

  • Annealing and normalizing processes
  • Quench and temper, martemper, and austemper processes
  • Effects of heat treating temperature, cooling rate, and steel composition on steel microstructure, strength, and hardness.
  • Effects of tempering temperature and time on steel microstructure, strength, and hardness.
  • Steel hardenability and effects of alloy composition on hardenability.
  • Common through hardening problems and how to avoid them.

The knowledge you’ll gain will enable you to make better alloy selection decisions, have more meaningful discussions with suppliers, and solve quality problems faster.


Knowledge of the concepts taught in the Steel Metallurgy webinar or the Steel Metallurgy course will be helpful for this webinar.
