... Abstract Steel is broadly classified as plain-carbon steels, low-alloy steels, and high-alloy steels. This chapter begins by describing microconstituents of low- and medium-carbon steel, including bainite and martensite. This is followed by a section discussing the effect of alloying elements...

In the lower-carbon, lower-alloy steels the extent of solution may be less critical. Best hardening practice dictates that the maximum...

.... Classification of steels based on chemical composition is a widely used method. There are three very broad-based categories of steel based on composition ( Fig. 8.1 ): plain carbon steels, low-alloy steels, and high-alloy steels (which include stainless steels). Plain carbon and low-alloy steels are briefly...
