This is a very handy calculator and you can customize it as per metal type, number of pieces, and the metal shape. You can choose among different types of metals and materials like Carbon Steel, Aluminum, Zinc, Copper, Brass, Aluminum, etc.

Steel is a metal that is an allotropic form of iron that also contains other alloying elements, particularly carbon. With the use of a variety of techniques, iron is extracted from iron ore, and steel is produced by mixing the recovered iron with an alloy, such as carbon, to give it a high tensile strength. Steel has a wide range of uses because of its low cost and strong strength characteristics.

Steel Production
Iron exists in its allotropic state as steel. Iron grows stronger and steel is produced as a result of the addition of carbon. Iron ore is heated to a very high temperature in a blast furnace to create steel. Smelting is the name of this procedure. Iron ore is transformed into a molten state through this process, although impurities remain. Therefore, while smelting, limestone is used to eliminate certain impurities. Unwanted contaminants are transformed by limestone into waste slag that may be easily removed to produce molten iron. Iron oxide contains a significant amount of oxygen during smelting. When carbon is added, iron oxide is reduced, and carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. Due to this, the iron becomes an Iron-carbon alloy which is called as steel. Depending upon the carbon content, steel is classified into various types –

There are basically four types of steel
a) Carbon Steel
b) Alloy Steel
c) Stainless Steel

These three kinds vary greatly in terms of their physical traits, chemical composition, ability to withstand corrosion, environmental traits, etc. Depending on how it will be used, the appropriate steel material must be chosen.
Steel comes in a variety of grades that are divided up based on certain characteristics. The American Iron & Steel Institute (AISI) and the Society of Automotive Engineers are the two primary forms of numbering systems used to differentiate the grades (SAE). There is a four-digit number that identifies the type of steel in both standards. The first letter of the designation for carbon steel is always (1), for example, 1XXX, AISI 1020. Depending on the alloy material used, the first letter in the case of alloy steel would signify from 2 to 9; for example, 2XXX for nickel, 3XXX for nickel-chromium steel, 5XXX for chromium steel, etc. The percentage of that alloy in steel is indicated by the second digit of the grade numbers, for example, 1 for 1 percent and 2 for 2 percent. The proportion of carbon concentration in the steel is indicated by the third and fourth digits of the numbering sequence. For instance, the numbers 20 and 40 denote a carbon content of 0.20 and 0.40, respectively.

With the use of these standards, the precise material and its chemical and physical makeup may be simply described. For instance, 1) AISI1020 is simple low carbon steel, usually referred to as mild steel, and it contains 0.20 percent carbon. 2) AISI4340 is a molybdenum steel with a 0.40 percent carbon content and a molybdenum concentration of roughly 3%.
