The objective of this work is to develop a reliable, repeatable and relatively low-cost simulative method for testing carbon steels with toughness requirements to determine the maximum heat input limits for each of these S-1 Series grouped materials. If adopted by the Navy, the method can thereafter be used to establish universal heat input limits for these steels.
