The flashcards below were created by user RJVan on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. The melting point of pure iron is
    2800degF (1550degC)
  2. When impurities in molten steel are not fluxed away by limestone, what is the finished product is called?
    Pig Iron
  3. Approximately how much carbon and silicon are in Pig Iron?
    • 3%-4% carbon
    • 1%-3% silicon
  4. What minerals are fluxed away by limestone?
    • Calcium
    • Magnesium
    • Aluminum Oxide
  5. Bessemer steel that is further refined into "duplexed" steel has what impurities removed?
    • Sulfur
    • Phosphorus
    • Iron Oxide
  6. Two processes for reducing the carbon content of pig iron are:
    The Bessemer Process and the Oxygen Process.
  7. Tool steel and special-alloy steel can be refined in what type of furnace?
    An Electric Arc (or Induction) furnace.
  8. How much carbon is in low carbon steel?
    Less than 0.30% carbon
  9. How much carbon is in medium carbon steel?
    0.30% to 0.70% carbon
  10. How much carbon is in high carbon steel?
    0.70% to 1.4% carbon
  11. Low alloy steel contains what percentage of alloying elements?
    less than 8% total alloying ingredients
  12. High alloy steel contains what percentage of alloying elements?
    more than 8% total alloying ingredients.
  13. What ingredient is added to steel for deoxidation?
    Aluminum
  14. Which of these ingredients does not increase steel's hardness?
    A.Boron
    B.Chromium
    C.Titanium
    D.Carbon
    C.Titanium

    Titanium fixes carbon and reduces hardness.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  15. Which two of these ingredients do not increase steel's strength?
    a.manganese
    b.nickel
    c.molybdenum
    d.silicone
    • a.manganese reduces brittleness by combining with sulfur.
    • b.nickel increases toughness, hardness, and corrosion resistance, but not strength.
  16. Body-centered cubic steel is called
    A. austenite
    B. martensite
    C. ferrite
    C. ferrite
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  17. A hard and very brittle super-saturated solution of carbon in iron is called
    A. ferrite
    B. austenite
    C. martensite
    C. martensite
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  18. Face-centered cubic steel is called
    A. martensite
    B. ferrite
    C. austenite
    C. austenite
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  19. What is the approximate carbon content of cast iron?
    2% carbon
  20. What is the carbon content of wrought iron?
    less than 0.1% carbon
  21. What are the effects of low and high levels of chromium in steel?
    Up to 2% increases hardenability. 4-18% increases corrosion resistance.
  22. What are the effects of low and high levels of nickel in steel?
    2-5% increases toughness. 12-20% increases corrosion resistance.
  23. Iron Carbide is also known as
    A. Martensite
    B. Cementite
    C. Banite
    D. Pearlite
    B. Cementite

    It contains about 6.7% carbon.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  24. Pearlite consists of what two components?
    A. Martensite and Austenite
    B. Ferrite and Banite
    C. Ferrite and Cementite
    D. Austenite and Cementite
    E. Ferrite and Martensite
    C. Ferrite and Cementite
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  25. FCC iron is also known as
    A. Gamma Iron
    B. Alpha Iron
    C. Delta Iron
    A. Gamma Iron
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  26. BCC iron can either be:
    A. Delta or gamma
    B. Alpha or gamma
    C. Alpha or beta
    D. Delta or alpha
    D. Delta or alpha
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
