Abstract

Cost effective steel utilization as distinct from steel utilization is an engineering challenge of our time, especially in this austere period. Steel scrap recovery is defmitely one of the areas to be seriously looked into by Nigerian engineers. After estimating the recoverable steel scrap to the year 200AD, this paper aims at fmding an appropriate technology and size for steel scrap recovery bearing in mind the need for self reliance and the level of our technological advancement. Simple and friend ly analysis was conducted to look at various alternatives using three industrial engineering techniques namely shortest route programme, linear and decision analysis. The computer programmes written in BASIC language and were run on a microcomputer. Small dispersed mi lls are highly favoured demanding the ingenuity of Nigerian engineers to make ti cost effective
