Steel Alloy Selection - Industrial Metallurgists

Steel Alloy Selection

Are you responsible for selecting carbon and low-alloy steel to use in engineered components? Do you struggle to understand the pros and cons of different alloys?

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn the considerations for identifying steel alloys and mill conditions suitable for an application. Case studies will be used to demonstrate the selection process and give attendees opportunities to apply their carbon steel metallurgy knowledge.

A basic understanding of steel metallurgy is needed to get the most from this webinar recording. This includes an understanding of metallurgical factors that influence steel strength and hardness. We recommend attending our steel metallurgy webinar or watching the steel metallurgy webinar video to learn these concepts.

Topics covered

  • Design requirements considerations for component alloy selection.
  • General effects of steel composition and metallurgical factors on steel strength, ductility, toughness, machinability, cold-formability, welding, and wear and fatigue resistance
  • Common effects of steel mill cold working and heat treating processes on steel microstructure and properties.
  • Common conditions of steel from a steel mill and their purposes

You will have 14 days access to the webinar recording. A pdf file of the presentation slides is available for download.
