DASCAL, Amalia Ana. Experimental studies to assess stainless steel high temperature hardness. Rev.fac.ing.univ. Antioquia [online]. 2006, n.38, pp. 119-127. ISSN 0120-6230.
This paper presents experimental studies conducted to assess the mechanical viability of hardness at high temperature. The studies were carried out on a Brinell hardmeter using original heating precincts of the test-bars. Thermal-resistant steel types, which are commonly subjected at high operational temperatures, were used for the experiments. The precincts and the annex elements, as well as the results are shown. Results can be used to determine the actual life time of component parts made out of this steel.
Keywords : Brinell hardness; high temperature; thermal-resistent steel grade.
