Steel production’s long-lasting impact
The production of steel has had a significant impact on society, from contemporary steel-framed buildings to the cutlery used in households. Steel has been in use for thousands of years, with the production of steel dating back approximately 4000 years ago. The Industrial Revolution, which began in the 18th century, played a pivotal role in the development of modern society and the rapid growth of steel production. Steel offers several benefits over cast iron, including malleability, versatility, and durability. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, steel items were produced in small quantities by local craftsmen. The development of large-scale production methods was a significant aspect of the Industrial Revolution, enabling manufacturers to produce forge-able metal. The Bessemer process, developed in the 1850s, was the first feasible method of large-scale structural steel production.
