According to the American Welding Society, carbon and low-alloy steel represent over 95% of the construction and fabrication metals used world wide. Good mechanical properties over a wide range of strengths combined with relatively low cost and ease of fabrication account for the wide spread use of these steels. These attributes make carbon and low-alloy steels excellent choices for use in appliances, mining and heavy equipment, bridges, buildings, machinery, pressure vessels, offshore structures, railroad equipment, ships, and a wide range of consumer products. The extensive use of these steels means that welding, brazing, and thermal cutting are essential processes of continuing importance.
