- Single tooth bending
fatigue testing of Pyrowear 53 carburized
test gears has been completed at Penn
Stateís Gear Research
Institute.†† Conventionally carburized
and hardened gears served as the baseline for comparison with
intensively quenched gears.
- DCT, LSP
Technologies, Inc., and Metal Improvement Corp. are investigating the
residual stress characteristics and fatigue life of carburized steels
subjected to laser shock peening under US
Army AATD funding.
- See the July issue
of Heat Treating Progress to read about DCT's work on residual stress
and fatigue. This is based on work sponsored by the US Army AATD.
