Guide for Practitioners 5 - Scottish Iron Structures - ( Published on This Guide for Practitioners provides a historical overview of the production and use of wrought and cast.   Cast-iron architecture is a building or other structure (like a bridge or fountain) that has been constructed in whole or in part with prefabricated cast iron. The use of cast iron for building was most popular in the s. As new uses for iron became revolutionary, cast iron.

cast iron in the construction of machinery. The first bridge using the new material was constructed in near Coalbrookdale. William Fairbairn, in his book On the Application of Cast and Wrought Iron to Building Purposes (), comments . The Applications of the Cast Iron, Iron Castings Made in China Cast Iron, also called the Gray Iron, is one of the widely used alloys in the Iron and Metal industry. The alloy is extensively used by various industries for the making of robust and rust-free automotive components.

  Star-shaped cast-iron pieces show where the building was stabilized with cast iron that spanned the length of the building, and was bolted to the facade. Photo by Larissa Zimberoff for Untapped Cities. The essential characteristic of wrought iron was its nearly complete freedom from carbon; that of steel was its moderate carbon-content (say between and %), which, though great enough to confer the property of being rendered intensely hard and brittle by sudden cooling, yet was not so great but that the metal was malleable when cooled slowly; while that of cast iron was that it.

Difference between cast iron and wrought iron - Designing Buildings Wiki - Share your construction industry knowledge. Cast iron is iron that has been melted, poured into a mould, and allowed to cool. Typically cast iron contains % carbon, it is non-malleable, hard and brittle.

Wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon (less than %) content in contrast to cast iron (% to 4%). It is a semi-fused mass of iron with fibrous slag inclusions (up to 2% by weight), which gives it a "grain" resembling wood that is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure.

Wrought iron is tough, malleable, ductile, corrosion-resistant and easily welded. When the cast iron is cooled, it hardens.

The mold is removed, and the cast iron has taken the shape of the mold. Molds can be reused, so cast-iron building modules can be mass produced, unlike hammered wrought iron. In the Victorian Era, highly elaborate cast-iron garden fountains became affordable for even a rural town's public space.

Lippincott Co.,c), by Phoenix Iron Company (page images at HathiTrust).

Cast iron, wrought iron, mild steel and stainless steel are the main forms of iron used historically. Of these, cast iron is the only one which is not forged.

This material has a granular structure as a result of the cooling process, which makes it much stronger in compression than in tension.

This work is intended for Architects, Architectural Stu-dents and Author has been induced to prepare it because of his inability to find, among the many excellent works on the Mathematics of Construction, one that could be readily adapted as a reference book, treating of the various details of Iron and Steel as applied in the construction and finishing of buildings.

Cast iron is basically an alloy of iron and carbon and is obtained by re-melting pig iron with coke, limestone and steel scrap in a furnace known as cupola. The carbon content in cast iron varies from % to %.

It also contains small amounts of silicon, manganese, phosphorus and sulphur in form of impurities elements. In buildings, cast iron structural columns added a fireproof element to support timber or wrought-iron beams.

By the end of the eighteenth century, cast iron became a familiar material for an increasing number of architectural and engineering purposes, including decorative balconies, railings, verandahs, fences, and window grills, both in.

cast-iron architecture, a term used to designate buildings that incorporate cast iron for structural and/or decorative purposes. After cast-iron supports were exploited as an alternative to masonry, and with the introduction of wrought-iron beams at mid-century, an efficient, prefabricated method of skeletal construction was possible, of which the most notable example.

Cast Iron does not rust rapidly in air. When immersed in salt water, however, it is gradually softened, made porous, and converted into a sort of plumbago Mr. Mallet found that the rate of corrosion decreased with the thickness of the casting, being from 1/10 to 4/10 inch during a century in depth for castings 1 inch D.
