    the prayers of the builders who aimed their projects at the sky. Steel is dependent on a specific amount of carbon to be infused into iron. Chemists learned that the optimal amount of carbon was between .2-1.5 percent volumetrically of the steel. More carbon would be cast iron, resulting in more brittle and less malleable material, and less carbon would be wrought iron, resulting in less brittle but also less strong material. A process called the Open Hearth Process was developed to produce the steel

    needed a material that was sturdy yet not flammable to replace what had previously been a city based on wood. The Industrial Revolution achieved a solution for Sullivan’s dilemma. Steel, a substance created by infusing a small percent of carbon into iron, allowed for taller, sturdier buildings with lower cost in terms of affordable housing. Urbanization took hold of Chicago as well during the eighteen eighties and nineties. As immigration grew in America, the need for more affordable housing grew correspondingly

    Steelmaking is a process in which raw materials such as iron and ferrous scrap are used to form steel. This process improves the quality of steel, giving it specific characteristics to suit the needs of diverse industries. Due to the availability, strength, and relatively inexpensive production cost, steel has become one of our world’s most valuable resources. The production of steel directly effects our lives nearly every day. Transportation on our railways, erecting buildings, manufacturing

    world. People in Egypt and Mesopotamia, first discovered iron, or more specifically meteoric iron, over 4000 years ago, and used what they believed was a ‘gift of the gods’ as a material of decoration. However it would still be a further 2000 years before the production of iron from mined iron ore would begin. Some of the earliest findings of smelted iron can be traced back to 1800BCE in India. “The Hittites of Anatolia began smelting iron around 1500 BCE” (World Steel Association, 2012). However

    furnaces greatly improved iron work. The modest blacksmith in the early middle ages only had a forge to make wrought iron. The invention of the blast furnace allowed blacksmiths to create hotter fires that improved the effectiveness of introducing carbon to iron in the smelting process. Later on Blast furnace improvements The blast furnaces made in the medieval era were often made of clay. It was shaped like a chimney and allowed late medieval blacksmiths to create stronger iron much faster. Medieval

    Grey cast iron is the most widely used foundry alloy in the world due to its wide range of achievable mechanical properties, good castability, excellent wear resistance and damping properties, high thermal conductivity as well as low cost (20-40% less than steel) (Xu et al., 2005). It is used in such diverse applications as cookware and musical instruments to auto parts and heavy machineries. Microstructure of grey cast iron is characterized by dispersion of graphite flakes in a ferrous matrix. It
