ZIMSEC O Level Combined Science Notes: Metal and metal alloy properties and their construction uses

  • Metals are popular construction materials
  • They have properties that make them suited for making diverse structures
  • They are ductile which means they can be pulled into wires
  • They are malleable which means they can be hammering into different shapes such as sheets, rods, bars and tubes
  • They are strong in tension and compression
  • They can be alloyed with other metals and non-metals to produce a material with different properties
  • Metals are used to make various structures
  • For example
  • bridges, cranes, pylons, door frames, window frames etc
