Nickel-steel sentence example
- They also tested several varieties of nickel-steel in the form of both ovoids and wires.
- Bidwell's results for iron and nickel were confirmed, and it was further shown that the elongation of nickel-steel was very greatly diminished by tension; when 2 Joule believed that the volume was unchanged.
- Thus it has been proved that in annealed cobalt and in nickel-steel there is no Villari reversal.
- Guillaume' the temperature at which the magnetic susceptibility of nickel-steel is recovered is lowered by the presence of chromium; a certain alloy containing chromium was not rendered magnetic even by immersion in liquid air.
- In a 29% nickel-steel, magnetization increases the constants by a small amount.Advertisement
- A nickel steel containing 36% of nickel has the property of retaining an almost constant volume when heated or cooled through a considerable range of temperature; it is therefore useful for the construction of pendulums and for measures of length.
- They are non-magnetic or very feebly magnetic. But the critical points of such nickel steel though thus depressed, are not destroyed; and if it is cooled in liquid air below its Ar, it passes to the a state and becomes magnetic.

- For instance, following Krupp's formula, the side and barbette armour of war-vessels is now generally if not universally made of nickel steel containing about 3.25% of nickel, 0.40% of carbon, and 1.50% of chromium, deeply carburized on its impact face.
- Here the merit of nickel steel is not so much that it resists perforation, as that it does not crack even when deeply penetrated by a projectile.Advertisement
- Much of the heavy side armour of war-vessels (see Armourplate) is made of nickel steel initially containing so little carbon that it cannot be hardened, i.e.
