In the course examines the impact of the main types of thermal and thermo-mechanical treatment on the structure and properties of steel and iron-based special alloys. Analyzes the phase diagrams of multicomponent systems, the role of alloying elements, their separate and cumulative effect on the structure and properties after thermal and thermo-mechanical treatment of different modes. Solves the problem by selecting the optimum treatment of special steels and alloys to produce the desired properties.
