Sample text

Iron and steel Iron has been known to man since ancient Egypt, with necklaces of iron beads found in pre-dynastic tombs, where it was clearly rated as more valuable than their precious stones. However, these were obtained from meteorites and easily identified by their high nickel (Ni) content, typically 10 per cent Ni. Early Eskimos had also found similar iron, and this possibly explains the perpetual association with the ancient gods, like Zeus and Thor, who have been linked throughout the ages with metalworking and blacksmithing.

By 500BC the Egyptian empire was overtaken by the Persians, then Alexander the Great established the Greek supremacy which subsequently fell to the Romans who ruled from North Africa to Britain from 250BC to AD400. This led to steady developments in metals, primarily for the military with the Greeks beginning to understand the rudiments of hardening by quenching of their iron (laboriously made with enough diffused carbon to permit hardening). The Romans progressed to tempering the quenched iron-carbon alloy, in their quest for the best combination of strength and toughness for critical weaponry like their famous short swords.

Developments in the strength of materials In his book Two New Sciences (1638), Galileo of Florence was the first to discuss ‘stress analysis’, a pioneering work on strength of materials. He even came close to correctly understanding the bending of beams theory which underpins structural analysis. In England, several decades later, Robert Hooke provided a framework for elasticity and the relation between stress and strain (load versus extension) that is at the heart of predicting a material’s behaviour.
