Increasing hardness of metals by suitable treatment, usually involving heating and cooling. More specific terms include age hardening, case hardening, flame hardening, induction hardening, precipitation hardening, and quench hardening.
A form of case hardening that produces a carbon gradient inward from the surface, enabling the surface layer to be hardened by either quenching directly from the carbonizing temperature or by cooling to room temperature, then re-austenitizing and quenching.
A process in which a ferrous alloy is case hardened by first being heated in a gaseous atmosphere of such composition that the alloy absorbs carbon and nitrogen simultaneously, and then being cooled at a rate that will produce desired properties.
Heating to and holding at a suitable temperature, followed by cooling at a suitable rate to lower the hardness or alter other mechanical or physical properties
