Steel, unlike wrought iron, can be tempered, and retains magnetism. Its malleability decreases, and fusibility increases, with an increase in carbon.

  2. An instrument or implement made of steel; as:

    1. A weapon, as a sword, dagger, etc. ``Brave Macbeth . . . with his brandished steel.''

See in the Vocabulary. Blister steel. (Metal.) See under Blister. Cast steel (Metal.), a fine variety of steel, originally made by smelting blister or cementation steel; hence, ordinarily, steel of any process of production when remelted and cast. Chrome steel, Chromium steel (Metal.), a hard, tenacious variety containing a little chromium, and somewhat resembling tungsten steel.

    1. (Firearms) See Wheel lock, under Wheel.

    2. A mill which has steel grinding surfaces.

    3. A mill where steel is manufactured.

      Steel trap, a trap for catching wild animals. It consists of two iron jaws, which close by means of a powerful steel spring when the animal disturbs the catch, or tongue, by which they are kept open.

      Steel wine, wine, usually sherry, in which steel filings have been placed for a considerable time, -- used as a medicine.

      Tincture of steel (Med.), an alcoholic solution of the chloride of iron.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

"make hard or strong like steel," 1580s, earliest use is figurative, from steel (n.). Old English lacked the verb but had styled "made of steel." Related: Steeled; steeling.


modified form of iron with a small portion of carbon, not found in nature but known in ancient times, Old English style "steel," from noun use of Proto-Germanic adjective *stakhlijan "made of steel" (cognates: Old Saxon stehli, Old Norse, Middle Low German stal, Danish staal, Swedish stål, Middle Dutch stael, Dutch staal, Old High German stahal, German Stahl), related to *stakhla "standing fast," from PIE *stek-lo-, from root *stak- "to stand, place, be firm" (see stay (n.1)). The notion is perhaps "that which stands firm." No corresponding word exists outside Germanic except those likely borrowed from Germanic languages.\n

\nAs an adjective from c.1200 (Old English used stylen "*steel-en." Steel wool is attested from 1896. Steel drum is from 1952.

Steel is an alloy of iron and other elements, primarily carbon, that is widely used in construction and other applications because of its high tensile strength and low cost. Steel's base metal is iron, which is able to take on two crystalline forms (allotropic forms), body centered cubic (BCC) and face centered cubic (FCC), depending on its temperature. It is the interaction of those allotropes with the alloying elements, primarily carbon, that gives steel and cast iron their range of unique properties. In the body-centred cubic arrangement, there is an iron atom in the centre of each cube, and in the face-centred cubic, there is one at the center of each of the six faces of the cube. Carbon, other elements, and inclusions within iron act as hardening agents that prevent the movement of dislocations that otherwise occur in the crystal lattices of iron atoms.

The carbon in typical steel alloys may contribute up to 2.1% of its weight. Varying the amount of alloying elements, their presence in the steel either as solute elements, or as precipitated phases, retards the movement of those dislocations that make iron comparatively ductile and weak, and thus controls its qualities such as the hardness, ductility, and tensile strength of the resulting steel. Steel's strength compared to pure iron is only possible at the expense of iron's ductility, of which iron has an excess.

Steel was produced in bloomery furnaces for thousands of years, but its extensive use began after more efficient production methods were devised in the 17th century, with the production of blister steel and then crucible steel. With the invention of the Bessemer process in the mid-19th century, a new era of mass-produced steel began. This was followed by Siemens-Martin process and then Gilchrist-Thomas process that refined the quality of steel. With their introductions, mild steel replaced wrought iron.

Further refinements in the process, such as basic oxygen steelmaking (BOS), largely replaced earlier methods by further lowering the cost of production and increasing the quality of the product. Today, steel is one of the most common materials in the world, with more than 1.3 billion tons produced annually. It is a major component in buildings, infrastructure, tools, ships, automobiles, machines, appliances, and weapons. Modern steel is generally identified by various grades defined by assorted standards organizations.

Steel (comics)

Steel, in comics, may refer to one of several DC Comics characters:

  • Commander Steel, a World War II hero and his grandsons, also known as simply "Steel" and "Citizen Steel".
  • John Henry Irons, an armored hero inspired by Superman and the folk hero John Henry
  • Natasha Irons, the niece of John Henry Irons, also known as "Starlight" and "Vaporlock".
Steel (disambiguation)

Steel is a metal alloy that is composed principally of iron and carbon.

Steel may also refer to:

Steel (The Twilight Zone)

"Steel" is an episode of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone.

Steel (John Henry Irons)

Steel (John Henry Irons), also known as the Man of Iron, is a fictional character, a superhero in the DC Universe. First appearing in The Adventures of Superman #500 (June 1993), he is the second character known as Steel and was created by Louise Simonson and artist Jon Bogdanove. Aspects of the character are clearly inspired by the African American folk hero John Henry, as well as Superman.

Steel (soundtrack)

Steel is the soundtrack of the 1997 film of the same name. It was released just days before the film and featured the hit single " Men of Steel", a posse cut featuring Shaquille O'Neal, Ice Cube, B-Real, Peter Gunz, and KRS-One. The soundtrack reached #185 on the Billboard 200 and #26 on the top R&B/Hip-Hop charts. Other guests include Mobb Deep, Blackstreet, Tevin Campbell and Spice 1. Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne had written and recorded a song for the film titled "Strange", but the song was not included.

Steel (Omni Series 1)

Steel, a part of the Omni Series box set is the sixth studio album by Canadian songwriter and record producer Daniel Lanois. It was first released in December 2008 as a box set along with Purple Vista (Omni Series 2) and Santiago (Omni Series 3).

Steel (band)

Steel is a one-off power metal project from Sweden that featured Dan Swanö and members of Opeth. Started in 1996, this collaboration emerged during the recording sessions for Opeth's Morningrise album. During a jam session, when the band were soundchecking the drums, they hit upon an idea to record a short piece for fun, entitled Guitars and Metal. This gave birth to Steel. Subsequently, they were asked to record more songs and when they did, the songs which were originally meant for a demo, actually appeared on a limited picture 7" EP, entitled Heavy Metal Machine released by Near Dark Productions. To this date, it remains their sole record.

Featuring only two songs, Heavy Metal Machine sounds very much like a typical 1980s power metal band, with high-pitched vocals, shredding solos, pounding bass lines and even 1980s-style sound effects (police sirens, etc.). However, the record is not meant to be taken as a serious power metal attempt, explaining Swanö's extremely high-pitched vocals. As limited release, Heavy Metal Machine remains a collectors' item and is hard to come by.

Steel (1997 film)

Steel is a 1997 American superhero action film based on the DC Comics character Steel. The film stars Shaquille O'Neal as John Henry Irons and his alter-ego Steel, Annabeth Gish as his wheelchair-using partner Susan Sparks, and Judd Nelson as their rival Nathaniel Burke. The plot centers on an accident caused by Burke which leaves Sparks paralyzed. The accident results in Irons quitting his job. Burke begins mass-producing weapons and selling them to criminals. In order to stop Burke, Irons and Sparks create a suit of armor that leads Irons to become the superhero Steel.

Written and directed by Kenneth Johnson, the film separates itself from the comic book series (and John Henry Irons' status as a supporting character of Superman) by using original protagonists and antagonists. On its initial release, Steel performed poorly at the box office and was panned by critics, noting the "cheesiness" and bad acting in the film.
