Mild Steel

Mild steel also known as plain-carbon steel, is now the most common form of steel, it's versatility and relatively lost cost to produce makes mild steel a perfect material for many general fabrications. Low-carbon steel contains approximately 0.05–0.25% carbon making it malleable and easy to form. Mild steel has a relatively low tensile strength.

Mild Steel is often used when large quantities of steel are needed, for example as structural steel. The density of mild steel is approximately 7.85 g/cm3 (7850 kg/m3 or 0.284 lb/in3) and the Young's modulus is 210 GPa (30,000,000 psi)

Low-carbon steels suffer from yield-point runout where the material has two yield points. The first yield point (or upper yield point) is higher than the second and the yield drops dramatically after the upper yield point. If a low-carbon steel is only stressed to some point between the upper and lower yield point then the surface may develop Lüder bands. Low-carbon steels contain less carbon than other steels and are easier to cold-form, making Mild Steel very easy to work with.
