Engineering steels are essentially wrought steels designed for mechanical and allied engineering applications. These require critical and often stringent levels of elasticity, strength, ductility, toughness and fatigue resistance. In some cases, it may also require resistance to high or low temperatures, corrosive and other aggressive environments.
Applications of advanced high-strength steels, sometimes called ultra-high strength steels, are finding their way into current production vehicles all over the world because of their unique qualities that allow for lighter weight parts that are as strong as or stronger than conventional steel counterparts. This steeluniversity.org module includes a special section designed to build a better understanding of advanced high-strength steels and its properties.
There is a great variety of engineering steel types and shapes. Each is carefully tailored to meet specific user requirements, in terms of properties and performance and in some cases in order to facilitate the manufacturing and fabrication techniques. These techniques are then used to make components or parts. The composition, process route and heat treatment parameters are carefully selected in order to meet the customers’ needs.
The subtopics in this module explore a wide range of engineering steels, from plain carbon steels to high alloy, ultra high strength steels. In each case, the composition and processing methods used to ensure the steel is suitable for its intended application are examined.
The engineering industry is heavily dependent on steel, and it’s used in a huge range of applications from shipbuilding, the automotive industry, architecture and machinery building.
