Abstract
Mud has many properties that make him very important part in drilling. Changing the
mud properties such as density or viscosity affects the whole system of drilling. Adding salt
water to the base drilling mud affects the properties of the mud.

Definition
Heat treatment may be defined as an
operation or combination of operations
involving the heating and cooling of a
metal or alloy in solid state for the purpose
of obtaining certain desirable conditions or
properties.

Hardness
Hardness is a measure of materials resistance to
localized plastic deformation (Small dent or a
Scratch)
Hardness techniques have been developed over the
years in which a small indenter is forced into the
surface of a material to be tested, under
Mechanisms of Strengthening
Metallurgical and materials engineers are often
called on to design alloys having high strengths
yet some ductility and toughness; ordinarily,
ductility is sacrificed when an alloy is
strengthened.
