Abstract

The objective of the present research is to produce cryogenically treated low carbon low alloy steel which has extreme properties for that composition like high tensile strength, high hardness and wear resistance. The cryogenic treatment is given to steel during solidification, which intro-duces severe chilling effect in steel. The under cooling of the melt during solidification increases the number of nuclei and thereby enhance the properties of steel. Chills of different thermal conductivity are used to get chilled steel for comparison purpose. It was found from literature review that, so for no work has been done on cryogenically treated steel during solidification. Hence, the present investigation is undertaken to fill the void.
