The 34CrNiMo6 steel is one kind of heat-treated low-alloy engineering steel with high strength and hardenability, which contains nickel, chromium, and molybdenum [5].
The Cr-Mo series steels are widely used because of their excellent properties by reasonable heat treatment process, such as favorable hardenability and shock absorption, less tendency of temper brittleness, and good corrosion resistance [1,2].
Nickel was used for improving austenite stability and for better hardenability. Transformation temperatures were calculated by means of the JMatPro software [10].
