earth magnetic flux vibes

Vertical steel pillars used in the construction of buildings, are invariably found to be magnetized. This occurs owing to the induction by the vertical component of the earth’s magnetic flux density. Similarly, steel joists lying horizontally in the magnetic meridian become magnetized by the horizontal component. The process of magnetization is often assisted by vibration set up by riveting during the course of construction.
