In this work we have analyzed the effect heat treatment on properties of spring shape steel specimens under various heat treatment processes. Specimen was subjected to heat treatment in electric muffle furnace. Heat treatment temperature, soaking time and cooling rate were selected as per phase diagram of specimen material. Specimen was tested for mechanical properties before and after heat treatment. Two processes annealing and normalizing compared with respect to their effect on properties of spring shape specimens in reference with standard data for steel used.
