The paper shows the possibility of carburization of low-carbon steel surface layers using high-frequency currents. The mathematical modeling of carburization using high-energy heating by high-frequency currents (HEH HFC) has been carried out, the temperature fields formed during the given processing have been calculated, as well as the structural changes in the surface layers have been simulated. The features of the structure formation in the surface layers of low-carbon steel after carburizing via HEH HFC have been determined by optical and scanning microscopy, which is confirmed by the computational models. The rational mode of fusion via HEH HFC has also been determined (power density of the source qs = (1.5 ... 4.0) • 108 W m-2, (the relative travel speed of parts Vp = 5 ... 100 mm / sec), with forming the compressive retained stresses in the surface layer (σRS ≈ -300 ... -400 MPa).
