Hysteresis curves for various steels

Hysteresis curves for various steels

Where can I obtain magnetic properties hysteresis (B-H?) curves for AISI 1008, 1015 and 1018?  This is totally out of my normal realm of work.

RE: Hysteresis curves for various steels

You can try the manufacturer. It's been awhile, but thy used to do this.  
You can also purchase:
Lamination Steels Third Edition CD-ROM
A Compendium of Lamination Steel Alloys
Commonly Used in Electric Motors

Check http://www.smma.org/EMERFWebHomePage.htm

You'll want to make sure that they include the materials you are interested in, because it is not inexpensive.

RE: Hysteresis curves for various steels

I appreciate the quick reply and it is a good resource however their reference lists only steels manufactured for electrical/magnetic end use.  I have tried AISI's web site(American Iron & Steel Institute) but no luck.  

Would appreciate any other suggestions.

RE: Hysteresis curves for various steels

ASM Metals Handbook 8th edition Vol 1 page 792, Yr. 1961 has very detailed B-H curves for low carbon steels and various magnetic materials.
