The Difference Between Stress Relaxation & Creep In A Structure

heat

The stress relaxation and creep in a structure varies according to structural strength and foundation requirements. The differences between the polar opposite building structure are that the stress relaxation varies under a specific time constraint. Creep is a concept which measures the increase in strain with a constant level of stress. Stress relieving creates a … Read moreThe Difference Between Stress Relaxation & Creep In A Structure

The Reason Metals Are Normalised During The Heat Treatment Process

normalising

Harchris Heat Treatment maintains the highest standards in terms of quality and process, with a distinct focus on service excellence and versatile engineering techniques. The process of normalising involves heating a material to a temperature that is elevated to an extreme temperature and then allowing the material to cool back to room temperature. This process … Read moreThe Reason Metals Are Normalised During The Heat Treatment Process

The Reason Metals Need To Be Hardened And Tempered For Higher Quality

heat-forged

Hardened & Tempered For Higher Quality Metals need to be hardened for an improvement in their mechanical properties, as well as an increase in the level of hardness, producing a tougher, sturdier item. Alloys are heated above the critical transformation temperature for the material, then cooled rapidly enough to cause the soft initial material to transform to a much … Read moreThe Reason Metals Need To Be Hardened And Tempered For Higher Quality

What Happens During The Annealing Process?

heat-forging

Annealing in metallurgy and material science is a heating treatment that modifies the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness. In the annealing process, atoms migrate in the crystal lattice and the number of dislocations decreases, leading to a change in ductility and hardness. This process … Read moreWhat Happens During The Annealing Process?
