Example text

GROWTH – With reference to cast iron, permanent increase in volume that results from continued or repeated cyclic heating and cooling at elevated temperatures. HALF-LIFE – The characteristic time required for half of the nuclei of a radioactive species to disintegrate spontaneously. HARDENABILITY – The property that determines the depth and distribution of hardness in a ferrous alloy induced by heating and quenching. Material Properties 45 HARDNESS – The property of metal to resist being permanently deformed.

SURFACE TENSION – Interfacial tension between two phases one of which is a gas. TARNISHING – A chemical reaction of a metal with its environment which results in formation of films which coat the metal. TEMPER – (1) In ferrous metals, the stress relief of steels that are hardened by quenching for the purpose of toughening them and reducing their Material Properties 51 BRITTLENESS. (2) In non-ferrous metals, temper is a condition produced by mechanical treatment such as cold working. An alloy may be cold worked to the hard temper, fully softened to the anealed temper, or two intermediate tempers.
