The Corrosion of Fence Wire

Description: "The investigation of which this bulletin is in part a record has been carried on with a twofold purpose in view. The first object is to furnish information to the farmer which will enable him to exercise an intelligent judgment as to the difficulties involved in the manufacture of wire fencing which shall be low in price and at the same time resistant to rust and corrosion. The second object has been to determine, with the cooperation of progressive manufacturers and metallurgists, the causes which underlie the much too rapid corrosion of modern steel wire, and, if possible, to suggest improvements in methods of manufacture by means of which the difficulties may be at least partially, if not wholly, overcome." -- p. 5

The American Steel Industry: A Changing Profile

Description: The U.S. steel industry has faced increasing difficulties since the late 1990s. More than 30 U.S. steel producers have gone into bankruptcy. While different companies and parts of the industry have been affected to different degrees, the two types of domestic producers of raw steel, integrated mills and minimills, have both supported restrictions on imports, which they say have undermined the ability of the U.S. industry to produce steel economically. This report reviews industry developments and the economic situation of the steel industry, including legacy cost aspects of its problems.

The American Steel Industry: A Changing Profile

Description: The U.S. steel industry has faced increasing difficulties since the late 1990s. About 40 U.S. steel producers have gone into bankruptcy. While different companies and parts of the industry have been affected to different degrees, the two types of domestic producers of raw steel, integrated mills and minimills, have both supported restrictions on imports, which they say have undermined the ability of the U.S. industry to produce steel economically. This report reviews industry developments and the economic situation of the steel industry, including legacy cost aspects of its problems.

Development, Mining, and Handling of Ore in Folded and Faulted Areas, Red Iron Mines, Birmingham District, Alabama

Description: Technical paper issued by the Bureau of Mines over mining of red iron ores in Birmingham, Alabama. As stated in the introduction, "the present paper deals more specifically with the development and handling of ore as affected by folds and faults in the ore bed, and considers changes that may be desirable or necessary in future mining practices" (p. 2). This paper includes illustrations, and photographs.

High-Temperature Oxidation Resistance of Thin Iron-Chromium-Aluminum Alloy Sheet

Description: Abstract: "The oxidation resistance of thin sheets of iron-28 w/o chromium-2.67 to 10.0 w/o alloys, nominally 0.004, 0.006, 0.008, 0.012, and 0.016 in. thick, was determined by exposure in static air for 100 hr at 2100 and 2300 F. A minimum of 3.67 and 9.37 w/o aluminum was necessary to prevent excessive oxidation of 0.004-in.-thick sheet material at 2100 and 2300 F, respectively. Correspondingly, specimens of lower aluminum content and greater thickness withstood the oxidation attack. Oxidation of iron-chromium-aluminum alloys appeared to be related to the diffusion of aluminum to surfaces of the sheet to form an adherent protective layer of Al2O3."

Occurrence of Iron Oxides on Cast-Iron Engine Surfaces After Operation

Description: Report presenting an examination of the surfaces of used cast-iron piston rings from various single-cylinder aircraft engine tests by electron diffraction. Generally, the oxide patterns were obtained to an appreciable extent from only the top compression ring of the piston-ring assembly; the other rings gave predominately a graphite pattern.

Sponge-Iron Experiments at Mococo

Description: From Forward: "This bulletin covers one phase of the program of the Metallurgical Division of the Bureau of Mines on the direct production of iron from its ores. Another phase of this program has been covered in Bulletin 391, Microscopic Structure and Concentratability of the Important Iron Ores of the United States, by S. R. B. Cooke. Methods of iron-core concentration will be discussed in future bulletins."

The Titaniferous Iron Ores in the United States: Their Composition and Economic Value

Description: From Introduction: "The summer of 1911 was spent in visiting the principal localities in the United States at which titaniferous iron ores occur, for the purpose making systematic collections of material. The following winter was spent in a study of the collected material in the geological laboratory of the John Hopkins University where the author contained as a Johnston scholar. This report is an account of the results obtained."

Concentration Experiments with the Siliceous Red Hematite of the Birmingham District, Alabama

Description: From Introduction: "The results of concentration experiments with these ores made a more thorough and systematic investigation desirable. In consequence, the author subsequently collected samples in the district, and these became the basis of the experimental work described in this report. The results are published by the Bureau of Mines as a part of its efforts to increase efficiency in the utilization of mineral resources."

Mineral-Dressing Characteristics of the Red Iron Ores of Birmingham, Alabama

Description: From Introduction: "The scope of this paper is such that it was deemed advisable to group the contents into several main sections. They are: Section I. Geography and Geology. Section II. Historical Review. (a) Mining and Smelting in Alabama. (b) Milling. (c) Summary of Milling Research. These two sections are primarily a bibliography and summary of the research on the Birmingham Red Mountain ores up to the middle 1940's."

Trends in Iron Casting Compositions as Related to Ferrous Scrap Quality and Other Variables: 1981-86

Description: From Abstract: "This bulletin describes the research and presents analytical results and evaluations over 5-3/4-year period from January 1981 to September 1986. Results show that iron casting compositions are charging with respect to a few tramp elements such as arsenic, cobalt, chromium, tin, zinc over the period. The data presented in this bulletin provide a means to ascertain whether the quality ferrous scrap is affecting casting quality."
