DEVELOPMENT OF STEEL PROPERTIES

In order to produce a steel product with the desired properties, basic metallurgical principles
are used to control three things:
Composition
|
Processing
|
Microstructure
|
Properties

This means that the steel composition and processing route must be closely controlled in
order to produce the proper microstructure. The final microstructure is of utmost importance
in determining the properties of the steel product.


This section will explore how various microstructures are developed and the unique characteristics of each microstructural component
in steel. The next section will discuss how alloy composition also plays a major role.
