An alloy of iron and carbon that may contain other elements and in which the carbon content does not exceed about 1.7%; it must be malleable at some temperature while in the as-cast state.
A strong, durable material made of iron and carbon, and often other metals, to achieve different properties. Steel is often used as a component in cans and as a structural material in construction.
an alloy of iron, which is mostly pure iron combined with some other elements, such as carbon.
Compound of Iron containing between 0.15 & 1.35% of carbon. Modern alloys include Chromium, Lead, Manganese, Molybenum, Nickel Vanadium & Tungsten to give varying properties. Can generally be hardened and welded with ease. Produced from Pig Iron by the Bessemer or Siemens Process since 1856, now replaced by BOS Process. Before that time, Shear Steel and Crucible Steel were produced in very small quantities
An important constructional material which is basically iron with impurities removed. It combines great strength with hardness and toughness.
An alloy which contains iron as the main constituent.
Alloy of iron and carbon (less than 1.8 %).
An alloy of iron and carbon.The carbon in steel, usually between 0.2 and 2.0% allows it to be hardened and tempered. Modern steels often contain additional elements for other qualities as well.
Any forgeable iron alloy with a carbon content of up to 2 %. By alloying, e.g. with nickel, chromium, vanadium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, tungsten, by thermal treatment (annealing, hardening, tempering), by the type of deformation (e.g. cold-forming, etc.), the properties can vary in large ranges and be adapted to the respective utilization purpose.
Iron with added carbon (and sometimes other elements) to make it hard.
Iron alloy in which iron is the predominant element; the carbon content is, as a rule, less than 2% and contains other elements. Some alloy steels can have a carbon content greater than 2%, but this value is the one that differentiates steel from cast iron.
alloy of iron and carbon and other materials. It is stronger than iron
iron made harder or stronger by mixing it with other substances ..... return
an alloy of iron with small amounts of carbon; widely used in construction; mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range
an alloy mostly made up or iron
iron with carefully specified additions of carbon, manganese and phosphorus
iron with a small percentage of carbon. The amount of carbon determines the steel's hardenability. The more carbon the harder the steel can be made by heat treatment. Almost all steels contain some alloying ingredients (other metals) but are not called alloy steels unless the addition is significant or added on purpose.
A malleable alloy of iron and carbon produced by melting and refining pig iron and/or scrap steel. Carbon (in a range from 0.002% to 1.7%) is an essential ingredient but other elements, such as manganese and silicon, may be included to provide specific properties.
Steel is an alloy of iron usually containing less than 1% carbon which is used most frequently in the automotive and construction industries or is cast into bars, strips, sheets, nails, spikes, wire, rods or pipes as needed by the intended user.
An alloy of carbon, iron or other metals malleable from ingot. Properties vary according to composition, type of heat treatment and mechanical working, but include strength, hardness, durability, abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance. It can be welded and machined.
An alloy of iron with other metals and carbon, having a range of properties, and usually very durable. During the last century, steel coins were often introduced as emergency economy measures, but are increasingly being used for low value coins, often copper plated.
An alloy of iron and carbon often with small amounts of other elements, this strong, malleable and durable material is most commonly found in either sheets or rods. It is generally fabricated to produce sculpture.
metal alloy containing iron and less than 2 % of carbon, with possibly elements in addition known as alloy elements. High-yield steel: steel which yield stress is equal or higher than 355 N/mm². Thermomechanical steels, which form part of it present an improved aptitude for welding compared to standardized steels. Mild steel: carbon rate from 0,15 to 0,20 % which breaking strength is equal to 400 N/mm²(fu). Current steels for construction, stretched in the form of beams, sections, sheets, bars or drawn out of wire of reinforcement or ordinary wire (known as wire).
High strength metal composed of iron with low carbon content. Often mixed with other metals for specific property alterations.
An alloy of iron and carbon that is hard, strong, and malleable
An alloy of wrought iron and carbon, capable of being hardened by heating and quenching (rapid coolng) in oil. This hardening process could cause embrittlement; gently re-heating (tempering) increases the metals resilience.
an iron-carbon alloy, malleable in some temperature range as initially cast. Steel usually contains some other alloying elements such as silicon, manganese, etc. as well as impurities such as sulfur and phosphorus.
An alloy of iron and carbon. Steel contains anywhere between 0.2% carbon (for soft wire and sheet steel) and 1.5% carbon (for cutting tools), with small amounts of many other elements often present.
Iron that contains carbon as an essential alloying component up to 1.8% and is workable in certain circumstances.
Generally defined as a metallic product whose principal element is iron and where the carbon content is not more than 2%. (The presence of large quantities of carbide forming elements may modify the upper limit of the carbon content.)
Iron containing a little carbon, with or without additional ingredients or treatments to alter its properties, eg to increase its strength.
Refined and tempered from iron, and used in chromed or stainless versions as a coinage metal in the twentieth century.
Iron, malleable in at least one range of temperature below its melting point without special heat treatment substantially free from slag, and containing carbon more than about 0.05% and less than about 2.00%. Other alloying elements may be present in significant quantities, but all steels contain at least small amounts of manganese and silicon, and usually as undesirable constituents, also sulfur and phosphorus.
A very hard and strong alloy of iron and carbon.
An iron-based alloy in which the carbon content is less than its solubility limit in austenite. This limit is approximately 2.0% in a non-alloy steel but may be higher in certain alloy steels.
A strong alloy of iron and carbon that contains a lower carbon content than cast iron (lower than 1.7%); used in commercial building because of its malleability under certain conditions.
A hard, tough metal composed of iron alloyed with various small percentages of carbon and often other metals such as nickel, chromium, manganese, etc. to produce hardness and resistance to rusting. Carbon Steel is controlled by its carbon content. Alloy Steel is controlled by alloying elements, which are added to increase its corrosion resistance and high temperature strength, instead of the carbon content.
An alloy of iron and carbon, containing no more than 1.74% carbon. It must be malleable at some temperature while in the as-cast state. See As-Cast.
(n) An alloy of iron, containing various amounts of carbon, manganese, and one or more other elements, such as sulfur, nickel, silicon, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium. These elements, when combined with iron, form different types of steels with varying properties.
Steel is an alloy whose major component is iron, with carbon content between 0.02% and 1.7% by weight, depending on grade. Carbon is the most cost effective alloying material for iron, but many other alloying elements are also used. Carbon and other elements act as a hardening agent, preventing dislocations in the iron atom crystal lattice from sliding past one another.
