Mechanical properties play an important role in engineering domain. In the present investigation, mechanical properties of plain carbon steel are compared with different heat treatment processes. Tailored special-character dual phases are possible in steel compared with normalized and Austempered conditions. Ferrite-Bainite structure is one of the dual phases possible in hypo-eutectoid steels by closely regulating process variables. Tensile strength and hardness of dual phase steels are better as compared with normalized and as bought conditions. Percentage elongation of normalized and Austempered conditions are also superior. Impact energy absorption of the specimen in Austempered condition reveals improved result compared to other conditions. Volume formation of different phases has been analyzed using SEM.
