steel meaning

EN[stiːl] [-iːl]
US
WSteel
  • Steels are alloys of iron and carbon, widely used in construction and other applications because of their high tensile strengths and low costs.
  • The carbon in typical steel alloys may contribute up to 2.1% of its weight.
  • Although steel had been produced in bloomery furnaces for thousands of years, steel's use expanded extensively after more efficient production methods were devised in the 17th century for blister steel and then crucible steel.
  • Further refinements in the process, such as basic oxygen steelmaking (BOS), largely replaced earlier methods by further lowering the cost of production and increasing the quality of the metal.
