Abstract

This report, one in an ongoing series of metallurgical reports, is devoted to iron-based alloys that contain only residual amounts of elements other than the primary alloying element, carbon—the definition of carbon steel. Because of its attractive cost, wide availability, and ease of fabrication and weldability, carbon steel is one of the most commonly used materials in the electric power generation industry. Carbon steels in which carbon represents 0.15 – 0.35%—those used most often as boiler and piping materials—are the focus of this Carbon Steel Handbook.

Although carbon steel is available in virtually all product forms, it is the pressure-containing applications that are of primary interest in this report: pipes, tubes, plates, castings, forgings, and wrought fittings.
