Keywords: Carbon Steel, Heat Treatment, Hardness Testing


Low carbon steel is easily available and cheap having all material properties that are acceptable for many applications. Heat treatment on low carbon steel is to improve ductility, to improve toughness, strength, hardness and tensile strength and to relive internal stress developed in the material. Here basically the experiment of harness and ultimate tensile strength is done to get idea about heat treated low carbon steel, which has extensive uses in all industrial and scientific fields.
