what is the composition of mild steel?Weegy:
*Download the technical hand book atfollowing link where you can get lot of details and equivalent standards:
*EN8:Medium Carbon Steel.
New name : [ 080M40
Designation:BS 970 080M40
*EN8 is an unalloyed medium carbon steel with good tensile strength. It is normally supplied in cold drawn or as rolled. Tensile properties can vary but are usually between 500-800 N/mm2.
C 0.35 - 0.45%;
Si 0.05 - 0.35%;
Mn 0.6 - 1.0%;
S, P < 0.06%.
In condition HR -> CD (thin);
Yield Stress x 10^6 Pa: 530;
Tensile Stress ,MPa: 660;
Elongation %: 7.
#EN stands for "Euro-Norm".

what happens to mild steel to make it stainless?Weegy:
sizes and are made from different kinds of steel like stainless, steel, mild steel, or
what is the difference between high carbon steel and mild steel?Weegy:
The main difference between steel and cast iron is its carbon content. Mild steel contains less than 0.30% carbon, and most high carbon steel contain less
what is the melting point of mild steel?Weegy:
The low carbon concentrations (0.05-0.15%) in mild steel do not have a major effect on the melting point of iron, which is 1538 centigrade. [ Looking at the Iron-Carbon phase diagram show that the reduction from this melting temperature will be only a few degrees.
At higher concentrations of carbon (2-4%), as in cast iron, the melting temperature is substantially reduced. The alloy starts melting at 1154 centigrade, and is completely molten by 1200-1400 centigrade depending on carbon content. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_mild_steel_melting_temperature
