Abstract Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to compare and contrast the effects that different manufacturing processes have on 1020 Steel. We will look at 2 main ways that manufacturers use to roll steel into specific sizes that are workable. These methods are hot rolling steel and cold rolling steel. These methods are similar in the since that both of the materials will be rolled, or forced through two rollers that are placed a desired distance apart to produce a sheet of the material. In hot rolling steel this is done with the steel heated to a temperature above its annealing temperature. Conversely in cold rolled steel, the rolling is done with the steel at a temperature far below its annealing temperature. These two processes have two completely different effects on the steel at a molecular level. After the hot rolled steel (HRS) is forced through the rollers it is allowed to cool, and during this time the steel recrystallizes. When the HRS is done
