Steel is a very essential structural material and its production worldwide has shown significant increases over the last years. In steels there always exist a large number of inclusions which can have a degrading effect on their fatigue properties.
This study is focused on the link between the characteristics of non-metallic inclusions and how they affect fatigue strength of the standardized case-hardened carbon steel 20MnCrS5 and a cleaner version of this steel, a so-called Clean steel.
For the evaluation of the mechanical properties the test result from rotary bending tests are compared and an improvement by 37.5% can be noted between the different steels. The new performed ultrasonic tests illustrate the difference in the size of defects in materials with different manufacturing processes and degree of reduction. By studying international and European standards for non-destructive testing and investigation of alloy compounds, the current material specification can be adjusted.
