  1. Jun 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Given the steel C1040. What do you mean by C, 10, and 40 in that steel?
    What is the common type of steel used in manufacturing LPG cylinder?

    Doesn't one's textbook have a classification table?

    One could look for the AISI/SAE classification schedule.

    I don't have a textbook. So I'm looking on the internet. I just want to know what is C, 10, and 40 on the steel given.

    try wikipedia.org under "SAE steel grades" I think that answers your question well. (You could have thought of that yourself, but it interested me too. Thanks)

    thanks for the information. About my second question, what steel is used in manufacturing LPG cylinder? Like the steel C1040.
    By the way, what is beading process in manufacturing or metalworks?
