flat-bar carbon steel


Explanation:
Alliage de fer et carbone (C<1,7 % et généralement <1, 20! avec de petites quantités de manganèse et de silicium et des impuretés.


Note :
Le carbone durcit le fer et rend possible la trempe. Il augmente Rt, E et diminue A % et &rh&0. Les variations de caractéristiques mécaniques de ces alliages et en particulier de Rt, en fonction de la teneur en carbone, ont permis de définir d'une manière conventionnelle les aciers extradoux, doux, mi-doux, mi-durs, durs, très durs et extradurs.

carbon steel sheets and strips


Explanation:
See the Canadian Steel Producers Association / L’Association candienne des producteurs d’acier.

http://www.canadiansteel.ca/oldsite/french/products/shapes.h...

Tôle ou feuille : Produit plat laminé mince de plus de 12 pouces de largeur.

Feuillard : Produit laminé généralement moins large que la feuille, souvent réalisé en épaisseurs étroitement contrôlées.

http://www.canadiansteel.ca/oldsite/products/shapes.html

Sheet: A thin, flat rolled product over 12 inches in width

Strip: A flat rolled product customarily narrower in width than sheet, and often produced to more closely controlled thicknesses.

La chimie de l'acier

La composition chimique des produits de l'acier est fonction de leur utilisation.
Aciers au carbone : Les aciers au carbone comptent la majeure partie de la production sidérurgique et servent à plus d'applications que tout autre matériau fabriqué. Comme applications habituelles, notons les piéces coulées, les piéces forgées, les tubes et tuyaux, les plaques, les feuilles et les feuillards, les fils et ses dérivés, les profilés, les barres, les piéces de chemins de fer telles que les rails, les roues et les essieux. Les aciers au carbone contiennent toujours du manganése, du silicium, du phosphore, du soufre et parfois d'autres éléments en petites quantités. Les facteurs influant le plus sur les propriétés des aciers au carbone ordinaires sont la teneur en carbone et la microstructure. La plupart de ces aciers sont utilisés sans traitement thermique final. Toutefois, un tel traitement améliore la microstructure et les propriétés en vue d'applications particuliéres.

Steel Chemistries

The chemical make-up of steel products can be altered to create different uses for steel:

Carbon Steels: These represent the major percentage of steel production and the widest diversity of application of any engineering material. Carbon steels are used in applications such as castings, forgings, tubular products, plates, sheet and strip, and wire and wire products, structural shapes, bars, and such railway items as rails, wheels and axles. They always contain some manganese, silicon, phosphorus and sulphur; with minor amounts of other elements sometimes present. The main factors affecting the properties of plain carbon steels are the carbon content and the microstructure. Most carbon steels are used without a final heat treatment. However, a heat treatment can be used to improve the microstructure and properties for specific applications.

rolled carbon steel


Explanation:
I think that acier plat refers to acier laminé and can thus be translated as 'rolled' while acier au carbone is 'carbon steel'

flat-rolled carbon steel


Explanation:
"Flat carbon products" or "carbon steel flat rolled products" are also OK.

(The reference below is quite good, but the site seemed to be down when I checked it today - 26/7/01.)
