Cold Working Degree Determination in Low Carbon Steel with Barkhausen Noise Analysis
Mild steel is one of the most commonly used materials in both industry, construction and other commercial –less or more elaborated- applications, and therefore the need of the appliance of an efficient and precise non-destructive testing method is requisite and mandatory. Here we report the experimental study of one of the most significant properties of mild steel, that of hardness, that can substantially reveal important facts such as the grade of deformation and work-hardening of steel, with the use of Barkhausen Noise Analysis. We also studied how the magnetic and mechanical properties of this specific metallic material can be successfully correlated.
