Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is a technical article authored by Nancy Baddoo (SCI) explaining the engineering techniques required to design stainless steel sections to EN 1993-1-4 (Eurocode 3). Firstly, different grades of structural stainless steel are introduced and the mechanical and physical characteristics of austenitic and duplex families briefly described. Secondly, the history of the European design standard is explained. Finally techniques to determine the classification and resistances of cross sections, resistances of compression members and flexural members and deflections are described.
