    properties of the steel, so some brief comments are in order. For many years steels have been produced by casting the molten steel into molds and allowing it to solidify into ingots which were then processed by rolling etc. Steel produced by ingot metallurgy is subdivided into four categories according to the deoxidization process used.

    added to iron, even though it is not thought of as an alloy because the word “steel” is defined as carbon in iron. Amounts as small as 0.05% have profound effects on the behav-ior of iron, and 0.15 to 0.25% additions are suffi-cient to make mild structural steel. Most heat …

    Metallurgy 101 (by popular request) Metals are crystalline materials Although electrons are not shared between neighboring atoms in the lattice, the atoms of a metal are effectively covalently bonded. Copper and Aluminum form face centered cubic lattices in their common phase. Iron at low temperature forms a body centered cubic lattice.

  • An Introduction to Steel and Steel Metallurgy

    • An alloy (mixture) of iron and carbon (<2.0%) • Plain Carbon Steel contains Manganese (>0.25%) • Alloy steels contain additional alloying elements, typically C, Mn, Si, Cr, Ni, Mo, Al and sometimes Ti, V, Nb, W, Co. • Typically Steels have 95% or more Iron with relatively small alloy additions.


    composition produces ductile iron or spheroidal graphite iron which is becoming competitors to steel. Yet another type of cast iron known as compacted graphite iron is a comparatively new member in the family of cast Iron which has got intermediate properties between grey iron and ductile iron.
