Steel is an efficient material for structural purposes because of its good strength to weight ratio. The basic requirement in the choice of particular steel is that it must be suitable for the product application and design conditions required. It must be available in the product form and shape required and it should be cost effective for the required applications. The versatility of steel for structural applications, rests on the fact that it can be readily available at a relatively cheaper price in a wide range of product forms, and with a useful range of material properties. The key to understanding the versatility of steel lies in its basic metallurgical behavior. This paper briefly describes the recent developments in steel construction technology, which have successfully transformed the market place and how India can take advantage of these developments and what strategies need to be adopted for large-scale introduction of steel intensive building construction in India.
