Steel has been used in construction of tall buildings since the 19th Century but nowadays steel has become an option for smaller buildings and even personal residences.

Steel is a “Recycle” product, thus we can use recycle steel in construction of buildings and other civil structures.

Steel has many advantages than concrete, faster method of construction meaning better for business. Because of its increased durability and low maintenance, it is an attractive building material.

Thus understanding steel and learning how to design steel structures will help to prepare for the future industry.

Steel has been used in construction of many skyscrapers in USA, and other developed and developing countries.

Use of steel is not limited only to buildings, but in petroleum industry, steel is in abundance.
