Introduction

Chapter


Abstract


  • Steel has been available as a high tonnage engineering material for nearly two centuries. During this time it has had a very creditable track record and one which is crucial to engineering progress, especially in providing the infrastructure in underdeveloped and developing parts of the world, which still dwarf in size and population the more developed nations. This is why the volume of steel production continues to increase, leading to the continual need to consider more economic ways of manufacturing using steel in order to minimise energy consumption and preserve natural resources.
