Abstract

It would be difficult to visualise the construction industry without steel, which is often the principal material providing the necessary stability in modern structures. Even its foremost competitor, reinforced concrete, relies very much on steel, in the form of bars, for its tensile strength. Notable examples, over the years, of structural steelwork forming the basic framework are self-evident in bridges, towers, pylons, and to a lesser extent, in factories and warehouses etc. In house building too, steel is playing an ever increasing role as the main alternative to timber in floor beams, roof trusses etc., not to mention windows, doors, staircases, balustrading and the like.
