Stainless Steel - 100 Not Out!

As 2013 commemorates 100 years since stainless steel was discovered by Harry Brearley in Sheffield, the BSSA is celebrating the centenary of this discovery that has changed the world we live in. We have selected 50 applications to run throughout 2013 demonstrating how this material has influenced our lives so far; leaving us unable to imagine a world without stainless steel.

In addition, the BSSA is collaborating with the SMEA to organise a major conference and exhibition in Sheffield from the 11th - 13th June 2013. Click here for more details about this event.

    Stainless Steel Makes the Cut

    Stainless Steel Makes the Cut

    Imagine a world without stainless steel... what we take for granted today was only discovered 100 years ago. In fact the discovery that changed the world was an accident Ė Harry Brearley, at Firth Brown's laboratory in Sheffield, was testing different steel alloys to try to improve the rifling in gun barrels and noticed that one cast did not corrode.

    Protecting London

    Protecting London

    London is potentially vulnerable to flooding due to the rising high-water level and the risk of a surge tide during a severe storm. In order to protect the city, a flood barrier was built.

    Something Old, Something New

    Something Old, Something New

    An early example of stainless steel in architecture can be seen in the Savoy, Britainís first luxury hotel in London opening its doors on the 6th of August 1889. The Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff opened in 2004 and is a more modern example of how this material can be used.
