In this post I'll talk about SAE 1010. First let's describe it and then have a look at its material's properties.
What is SAE 1010?SAE 1010 carbon steel is a plain carbon steel with 0.10% carbon content.
ApplicationSAE 1010 steel is a carbon (non-alloy) steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products
Ok let's start with SAE 1010 Chemical Composition.
C, Carbon0.08 - 0.13
P, Phosphorus max.0.040
S, Sulfur max.0.050

My Material's Ranking ResearchWhile engineers will often look for the cheapest material they can use, I took a different approach to material's selection to help newbie students.
I ranked materials according to their yield strengths and SAE 1010 currently ranks 162 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 161 materials that are more resistant.
Note: I've analysed 162 materials in order to create an yield strength index. Check my material's comparison post for more details.

CitationWhen you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.
That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.
To make your life (and citation) easier just copy and paste the information below into your assignment or essay:
Luz, Gelson. SAE 1010 Properties (Chem., Mech. & Rankings). Materials Blog. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. URL
Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page. This citation format is based on MLA.
