Projects mentioned include the Bilbao Abandoibarra Bridge, Lloyds Building (London), Petronas Towers (Kuala Lumpur), the Court of Human Rights(Strasbourg) and Waterloo Eurostar Terminal (London), where the stainless steel had to meet a design life of 125 years. Applications for both austenitic and duplex types are discussed in structural, architectural, tunnel and road applications. Swimming pool, plumbing (water) and chimney lining applications are also mentioned.
