Structural Steel Design to Eurocode 3 and AISC Specifications

Preference :

Structural steel also called constructional steel or sometimes carpentry steel is characterized by a carbon content of between 0.1 and 0.25%. The presence of carbon increases the strength of the material, but at the same time reduces its ductility and weldability; for this reason, structural steel is usually characterized by low carbon content. Besides iron and carbon, structural steel usually contains small quantities of other elements. Some of them are already present in the iron ore and cannot be entirely eliminated during the production process, and others are purposely added to the alloy in order to obtain certain desired physical or mechanical properties. Among the elements that cannot be completely eliminated during the production process, it is worth mentioning both sulfur (S) and phosphorous (P), which are undesirable because they decrease the material ductility and its weldability (their overall content should be limited to approximately.
