National Museum of Industrial History: Museum Receives Grant To Digitize Bethlehem Steel Photo Collection

National Museum of Industrial History: Museum Receives Grant To Digitize Bethlehem Steel Photo Collection. “Dozens of industrial photographers were employed by the Bethlehem Steel Corporation to capture iron and steelmaking activities in the plants, in the mines, on construction projects, in maritime and rail industries, and inside the largest steelmaking research and development facility in the world, at one time. This digitized collection is the result of a two year long process of identifying and selecting negatives, in an aim to represent the full extent of corporate operations during the first three quarters of the 20th century.”

Southeast Chicago Archive and Storytelling Project

Spotted in my Google Alerts: Southeast Chicago Archive and Storytelling Project . From the front page: “History is often told from the viewpoint of the powerful.

Can looking more closely at what has been saved from the past spark conversations and make connections across generations, groups, and geographic regions? Can it help us better understand the present and reimagine the future?”

Green Car Congress: New database to speed creation of innovative steels

Green Car Congress: New database to speed creation of innovative steels . “Researchers from the National University of Science and Technology (MISIS) in Russia have developed a database that will help create new grades of steels. This will speed up the process of creating innovative steel grades with specified strength and ductility allow at least 10 times, which will allow manufacturing car bodies of the most complex shapes. A paper describing their work is published in the journal Calphad.”
