This project examines thermal and mechanical means for conditioning plain carbon steel. It explores physical properties not affected by conditioning as well as key mechanical properties that change with varying treatments, including annealing, normalizing, quenching, cold rolling and hot rolling. The effect of carbon in plain carbon steels is emphasized. The following material properties are explored: density, melting temperature, remanent magentization, elongation, hardness, yield strength in tension, and tensile strength.
