Abstract : Metallurgical examination, including Brinell hardness, fracture tests for steel soundness and ductility, macroetch tests, and microscopic examination, were conducted on 19 plates which had been previously tested as a part of the effect of hardness program. All plates were satisfactorily heat treated and all plates but one are considered to have been processed from adequately sound steel.
