New resource for automotive engineers discusses steel bar performance issues

July 13, 2017 - There is now a Bar Fatigue Blog. Hosted by the Long Product Market Development Group within the Steel Market Development Institute, the blog is an online resource/tool for automotive engineers looking for the latest steel fatigue innovations and information.

Topics of discussion include the comparison of the fatigue properties of high-carbon steels for various processing cycles and the fatigue properties of medium-carbon steels in the normalized and quenched and tempered conditions.

The blog is open to participation by steel and ground vehicle OEM and supplier design engineers, powertrain/chassis engineers, materials engineers, application engineers, academia and FEA simulation experts.

Recent topics include core hardness of carburized parts, heat treatments generally and their impact on yield and tensile strength, and the effect of inter-granular oxidation on axial fatigue test bar performance, as seen in tests.
