Abstract : A comprehensive testing program on powder-forged (P/F) 10XX steels was conducted at two nominal carbon levels (0.40% and 0.60%), two levels of deformation (repress and upset), and two levels of heat treatment (normalized and mock-carbonitrided). The data were used to develop a military specification for powder-forged weapon components. Test and inspection procedures developed for type 46XX powder-forged steels under contract DAAK-10-84-0022 were incorporated to insure commonality between the 10XX and 46XX specifications. Handbook data on selected wrought alloys were used to prepare interchangeability tables to aid designers in selecting appropriate powder-forged steels. A testing program on low-density powder-forged 46XX steels was conducted at three nominal carbon levels (0.20%, 0.40% and 0.60%).
