The need for adequate strength in crankshafts is discussed. Heat treat methods that will provide adequate wear resistance or adequate strength, or a combination of both, are described. Details of the heat treat process are presented and the results obtained on several steels are shown. The combinations of heat treatments and materials presented here provide the engineer with several alternatives for ensuring adequate crankshaft design.
