Structural Design of Ferritic Stainless Steels

This information sheet is written for engineers and architects and gives guidance on the structural design of ferritic stainless steels. Much of the information was developed during the EU’s Research Fund for Coal and Steel project Structural Applications of Ferritic Stainless Steels (SAFSS). This was a three year research project which was completed in 2013. The project partners included stainless steel producers, research institutes, universities and design consultants. Through experimental tests, field trials and numerical analysis, the project developed design guidance for a group of ferritic stainless steels which are suitable for structural applications.
