The History of Basic Steel Manufacture
M. R. CAMPBELL
ON THE LAST DAY of December, 1951 , a half-century of steel production was completed in the open hearth department of Dominion Iron & Steel, Limited, in Sydney, Nova Scotia. During that period, almost every known variation of basic steel making practice was used in working out a steel making process whi.ch would overcome the difficult metallurgical problems imposed by the use of Cape Breton coal and Wabana ore. This paper is presented as a brief review of these steel making practices, setting forth the fundamental metallurgical factors involved in their success or failure.
