heat treatment of steel

Title: heat treatment of steel


Welding Research Council (WRC) Bulletin 302 has a
good discussion on Post Weld Heat Treatment.  It's
written for pressure vessel steels, but it has a lot of
background information useful for structural steels.

Can anyone recommend references on heat treatment of steel from a
structural engineering perspective?  I'm interested in (1) post-weld
stress relief topics and (2) the effect of various treatments on the
mechanical properties of structural steels, in general.
