Author
Abstract
This paper dilates upon the developments and the evolution of the nomenclature of structural metals in the building industry during the period 18601914. When turning to 19th century literature, the iron andsteel nomenclature and the corresponding properties are far from uniform and clear. However, in view of todays ongoing rehabilitations, it is essential to thoroughly know and understand the evolution of structural metals and to distinguish their properties. By means of three diagrams on the production and treatment,the quality and the form, this article elucidates the above-mentioned shortcomings for both the former and present-day key role languages of communication on international conferences, namely French and English.
