Rolled steel in structural shapes.
A kind of strong mild steel, suitable for structural shapes.
Category of steel used in metal and mechanical construction, including both carbon and alloy steel. They can be further subdivided on the basis of use, into hardened and tempered steel, casehardening steel, steel for springs, bearings, etc.
a strong steel that is rolled into shapes that are used in construction
When this term is applied to steel sheet, it refers to the designation that is used for steel sheet that is produced to meet a specific level of strength and formability. The formability is expressed as percent elongation in a tensile test. Structural Steel is typically used for applications where the strength of the sheet is an important design criterion, i.e., load-bearing applications.
Steel formed in varying shapes I-beam, etc. to withstand the live and dead loads of a structure.
Variously shaped pieces of steel which are used for load bearing purposes. In framing of a structure. This type of framing is stronger, more durable than wood and fireproof and is used for high-rise buildings.
Structural steel is steel construction material, a profile, formed with a specific shape and certain standards of chemical composition and strength. Structural steel shape, size, composition, strength, storage, etc, is regulated in most industrialised countries.
