“Can we make a material stronger using heat?”
Oftentimes, when we receive a material, it is not strong enough for any practical purposes. Because of this, there exists multiple material hardening methods to make up for such a case. One such method is known as heat treatment. Heat treatment involves the use of heat to change the physical properties of a material to more desired properties. Cold working (despite being based on cooling the object) is one example of a heat treatment process.
