It is important for heat treaters to understand
the mechanisms associated with quench cracking and to take all prudent steps
necessary to avoid in-service product failures (Fig. 1). To accomplish this
task, we must work with design and manufacturing engineers on materials
selection, manufacturing methods (including heat treatment) and safety
