Yamada, Y. "TECHNICAL PAPER Part 1: Properties of high carbon steel wires drawn at extremely slow speeds”, WIRE JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL , December 2015, pp 58-64
The first part of this paper focuses on different aspects of high-tensile strenght wires and strain aging. The second part will focus on other factors, including static strain aging characteristics of cold-drawn, spheroidized annealed high-carbon steel wire.
High-carbon steel wires such as music spring wire, rope wire, pre-stressed concrete wire, steel tire cord, main cable wire for suspension bridges, etc., are produced via the patenting and cold-drawing process. Most of the energy consumed in drawing of high carbon steel wire is converted into heat, and the energy stored in cold-drawn wire is only a small portion of the total energy consumed.
