Biswas, S C (1958) Practical Problems in the Manufacture of Alloy Steel. In: Symposium on Production, Properties, and Applications of Alloy and Special Steels, Feb. 1-4, 1956, NML, Jamshedpur.
DURING World War II, when the availability of alloy steels from abroad was poor, attempts were made to have makeshift indigenous production. Pioneers in the field were the Tata Iron & Steel Co.Ltd. Tatas started making alloy steels a little over two decades hack for the construction of the new Howrah Bridge, when they patented their ' Tiscor ' steel - a low-alloy constr-uctional steel with approximately 1 per cent chrome and 0.5 per cent Cu, having better resistance to atmo-sphere corrosion than ordinary mild steel. A major part of the steel structure of the Howrah Bridge is fabri- cated from Tatas' 'Tiscor' steel.
