Controlled heating and cooling of steels have significant effect on the mechanical properties which is as a result of change in the microstructure. The change in microstructure largely depends on the composition of carbon present and temperature change. This experiment investigates the change in mechanical properties of plain carbon steel with 0.4% carbon content when subjected to heating process and a subsequent rapid cooling in ice cooled water. After the heat treatment procedure, the material is then subjected to a destructive test (Torsion Testing) to check the behaviour of the material before failure. The material failed on getting to a Torque of about 9.8 N-m. The result was compared with another material of same composition without the heat treatment process, a Torque of 25N-m reached and an appreciable plastic region was observed before failure. The non-heat treated material is said to have a considerable level of ductility when compared with the heat treated material which is very hard and brittle hence a martensitic structures.
