European steels according to product sheets

This article is also available in:
The IDEA StatiCa material database (MPRL) has been amended by European steel according to product sheets. This is useful especially for UK engineers where the National Annex of EN 1993-1-1 refers straight to steel product sheets, such as EN 10025-2.

List of implemented steel grades:

  • EN 10025-2
  • EN 10025-3
  • EN 10025-4
  • EN 10025-5
  • EN 10025-6
  • EN 10149-2
  • EN 10210-1
  • EN 10219-1

Steel grades according to EN 1993-1-1, which differ from the product sheets but are adopted by most countries using Eurocode, are without any change. Steel grades according to product sheets have their code name appended in brackets.

European steels according to product sheets

Thickness-dependent material strength is selected for each plate separately even though several plates belong to one member.

Strength of fillet welds is selected according to EN 1993-1-8, Cl. 4.5.3.2(6): tensile strength, fu, is selected as a minimum of the tensile strength of two connected plates and the selected steel grade in weld manufacturing operation.
