Heavy Steel Plates in Civil Engineering

Even if the construction industry is presently not performing well in many European countries, structures made of steel are becoming more and more popular. The advantages of this building material (such as high resistance, safe and high-quality fabrication and sustainability) are becoming more and more appreciated by architects and civil engineers. Further, steel structures have […]

Wet H2S service – What are the Typical Requirements for Steel Plate?

Many petrochemical refineries have Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) present in the their process streams. Famous for it’s smell of rotten eggs H2S when mixed with liquid water in a refinery is known as Wet H2S. In most refineries carbon steel boiler plates are used in this environment but they are subject to degradation depending on the […]

High Strength Steel Plate

Since the first application of steel in steel structures in the 19th century the development of steel construction has been closely linked to the development in material properties and production methods. Significant achievements concerning strength, economy, design versatility, fabrication and erection techniques and service performance would not have been possible without the substantial improvements of […]

High Strength Steel – TMCP and QT Plates for Heavy Structures

This article summarizes the current state of the art in the production and application of TMCP high strength steel plates for steel structures. Using┬áthe thermomechanical rolling process heavy steel plates with a yield strength of up to 500 MPa can be produced. These are also characterized by best fabrication properties, therefore these products can be […]
