Quenching is a heat treatment when metal at a high temperature is rapidly cooled byimmersion in water or oil. Quenching makes steel harder and more brittle, with small grains structure.

Tempering is a heat treatmentapplied to steel and certain alloys. Hardened steel after quenching from a high temperature is too hard and brittle for many appli­cations and is also brittle. Tempering, that is re-heating to anintermediate temperature and cooling slowly, re­duces this hardness and brittleness. Tempering tempera­tures depend on the composition of the steel but are fre­quently between 100 and 650 °C. Higher temperatures usually give a softer, tougher product. The color of the oxide film produced on the surface of the heated metal often serves as the indicator of its temperature.

Annealing isa heat treatment in which a material at high temperature is cooled slowly. After cooling the metal again becomes malleable and ductile (capable of being bent many times withoutcracking).

All these methods of steel heat treatment are used to obtain steels with certain mechanical properties for cer­tain needs.

Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleyev

Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleyev is a famous Russian chemist. He is best known for his development of the periodic table of the properties of the chemical elements. This table displays that elements' properties are changed periodically when they are arranged according to atomic weight.

Mendeleyev was born in 1834 in Tobolsk, Siberia. He studied chemistry at the University of St. Petersburg, and in 1859 he was sent to study at the University of Heidelberg. Mendeleyev returned to St. Petersburg and became Professor of Chemistry at the Technical Insti­tute in 1863. He became Professor of General Chemistry at the University of St. Petersburg in 1866. Mendeleyev was a well-known teacher, and, because there was no good textbook in chemistry at that time, he wrote the two-vol­ume «Principles of Chemistry» which became a classic textbook in chemistry.

In this book Mendeleyev tried to classify the elements according to their chemical properties. In 1869 he pub­lished his first version of his periodic table of elements. In 1871 he published an improved version of the peri­odic table, in which he left gaps for elements that were not known at that time. His table and theories were proved later when three predicted elements: gallium, germanium, and scandium were discovered.

Mendeleyev investigated the chemical theory of solu­tion. He found that the best proportion of alcohol and water in vodka is 40%. He also investigated the thermal expansion of liquids and the nature of petroleum.

In 1893 he became director of the Bureau of Weights and Measures in St. Petersburg and held this position until his death in 1907.

Metals are important in industry because they can be easily deformed intouseful shapes. A lot of metalworking processes have been developed for certain applica­tions. They can be divided into five broad groups:





Sheet-metal forming.

During the first four processes metal issubjected to large amounts of strain (deformation). But if deformation goes at a high temperature, the metal will recrystallize — that is, new strain-free grains will grow instead of deformed grains. For this reason metals are usually rolled, ex­truded, drawn, or forged above their recrystallization temperature. This is called hot working. Under these conditions there is no limit to the compressive plastic strain to which the metal can be subjected.

Other processes areperformed below the recrystalli­zation temperature. These are called cold working. Cold workinghardens metal and makes the part stronger. However, there is a limit to the strain before a cold part cracks.


Rolling is the most common metalworking process. More than 90 percent of the aluminum, steel and copper produced is rolledat least once in the course of produc­tion. The mostcommon rolled product issheet. Rolling can be done either hot or cold. If the rolling is finished cold, the surface will be smoother and the product stronger.


Extrusion is pushing the billet to flow through the orifice of a die. Products may have either a simple or a complex cross section. Aluminum window frames are the examples of complex extrusions.

Tubes or otherhollow parts can also be extruded. The initial piece is athick-walled tube, and the extruded part is shaped between a die on the outside of the tube and a mandrel held on the inside.

In impact extrusion (also called back-extrusion) (штамповка выдавливанием), the workpiece is placed in the bottom of a hole and aloosely fitting ram is pushed against it. The ramforces the metal to flow back around it, with thegap between the ram and the diedetermin­ing the wall thickness. The example of this process is the manufacturing of aluminum beer cans.

Drawing consists of pulling metal through a die. One type is wire drawing. The diameter reduction that can be achieved in one die is limited, but several dies in se­ries can be used to get the desired reduction.

Sheet metal forming

Sheet metal forming (штамповка листового металла) is widely used when parts of certain shape and size are needed. It includes forging, bending and shearing. One characteristic of sheet metal forming is that the thick­ness of the sheet changes little in processing. The metal is stretched justbeyond itsyield point (2 to 4 percent strain) in order toretain the new shape.Bending can be done by pressing between two dies.Shearing isa cutting operation similar to that used for cloth.

Each of these processes may be used alone, but often all three are used on one part. For example, to make the roof of an automobile from a flat sheet, the edges are gripped and the piece pulled in tension over alower die.Next anupper die is pressed over the top, finishing the forming operation (штамповку), and finally the edges are sheared off to give the finaldimensions.


Forging is the shaping of a piece of metal by pushing with open or closed dies. It is usually done hot in order to reduce therequired force andincrease the metal's plas­ticity.

Open-die forging is usually done byhammering a part between two flat faces. It is used to make parts that are too big to be formed in a closed die or in cases where only a few parts are to be made. The earliest forging machines lifted a large hammer that was then dropped on the workpiece, but now air or steam hammers are used, since they allow greater control over the force and the rate of forming. The part is shaped by moving or turning it be­tween blows.

Closed-die forging is the shaping of hot metalwithinthe walls of two dies that come together toenclose the workpiece on all sides. The process starts with arod or bar cut to the length needed to fill the die. Since large, complex shapes and large strains areinvolved, several dies may be used to go from the initial bar to the final shape. With closed dies, parts can be made to closetoler­ances so that little finish machining is required.

Two closed-die forging operations are given special names. They areupsetting andcoining. Coining takes its name from the final stage of forming metal coins, where the desiredimprint is formed on a metal disk that is pressed in a closed die. Coining involves small strains and is done cold. Upsetting involves a flow of the metal back upon itself. An example of this process is the push­ing of a short length of a rod through a hole,clampingthe rod, and thenhitting the exposed length with a die to form the head of anail or bolt.
