The Future for Steel

The use of steel has been greatly influenced by the requirements for fire protection, design standards, and manufacturing processes. Concrete casing could be replaced by water filled fire protection of main columns. The departure from traditional RC construction would permit bigger modular plan clearances and lighter demountable construction. The construction of wide spans with either arch or dome construction, and the possibilities of single-layer shell type structures and their potential uses, are considered. R.G. Taylor
