Ponle E. A, Olatunde O. B, Fatukasi S. O


Steel being a part of everyday life of an individual, it is incumbent to study its chemical constituent so as to enable production of reliable steel bars. In this work the chemical constituent of reinforcing steel bars manufactured from scraps and imported steel bars is investigated. The percentage chemical composition was related to the available standards. It is found that all the elements follow a consistent pattern, however, graphically, the carbon found present in the 12mm diameter steel bars conform more with the standard compared to the carbon contents of the16mm steel bars.

Keywords: Steel bar, Elements, Scraps, Chemical Composition.
