Abstract : Twelve sections from 3/4 inch plates fired as a part of the effect of hardness program were examined metallurgically. Steel soundness was uniformly satisfactory on one series of six plates. However, three of the other six plates were of inferior steel soundness. Heat treatment was satisfactory on all plates. Crystallinity was evident on samples of plates at hardness above 330 Brinell. Additional keywords: U/A Reports.
