MAKING THE CASE FOR STEEL.

The Association for Iron and Steel Technology invited students to "produce a three-minute original video that highlights advanced technologies in steelmaking."  The submissions participated in a contest.  I don't know how much longer the contest announcement will remain a live link.

One of the entries, "Steel: An Awakening," illustrates the changing nature of the steel works.  It will put into context some of the developments highlighted in my recent review of City of Steel.


Another video from the Association, "The Art of Steelmaking," rebuts the presumption that the steel works is an "iron-spouting dinosaur."  Plenty of vintage footage before the contemporary technology rolls out.  Enjoy.


Here are some still shots of the iron-spouting dinosaurs that didn't make it past the 1980s.
