This chapter discusses the properties and compositions of steels used in pressure vessels, piping, boilers, rebar, and other structural applications. It covers fine-grained steels, quenched and tempered steels, and controlled rolled (thermomechanical treatment) steels. It also compares and contrasts steels used for concrete reinforcement and in various types of pressure vessels, and presents a metallographic study of the effects of welding on the micro and macrostructure of steel.
