CHAPTER 11 APPLICATIONS AND PROCESSING OF METAL ALLOYS PROBLEM SOLUTIONS Ferrous Alloys 11.1 (a) List the four classifications of steels. (b) For each, briefly describe the properties and typical applications. Solution This question asks that we list four classifications of steels, and, for each, to describe properties and cite typical applications. Low Carbon Steels Properties: nonresponsive to heat treatments; relatively soft and weak; machinable and weldable. Typical applications: automobile bodies, structural shapes, pipelines, buildings, bridges, and tin cans. Medium Carbon Steels Properties: heat treatable, relatively large combinations of mechanical characteristics. Typical applications: railway wheels and tracks, gears, crankshafts, and machine parts. High Carbon Steels Properties: hard, strong, and relatively brittle. Typical applications: chisels, hammers, knives, and hacksaw blades. High Alloy Steels (Stainless and Tool) Properties: hard and wear resistant; resistant to corrosion in a large variety of environments.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
