"Sulfur is a very important component in steel. Usually is it present as an impurity in commercial steels. In these materials the sulfur content is 0.05 percent maximum but may be higher or lower than this in some steels...It is generally believed that sulfur has a deleterious effect on the mechanical properties of steels. Originally this investigation was to deal with this aspect of sulfur in steels but the work did not progress to this stage. An effort was made to vary the nature of the sulfides in several experimental heats of steel by controlling their composition. Variation in the nature of the sulfides did result and the major effort was devoted to a metallographic study of the sulfides in fifteen experimental heats"--Introduction, page 1.
