Stainless steel in structures

ISSF, together with the AvestaPolarit Research Foundation, Euro Inox and the Steel Construction Institute, has recently sponsored the Second International Experts Seminar on Stainless Steel in Structures. The Seminar provides a forum where researchers can meet together and share recent advances in the understanding of the behaviour of structural stainless steel. The papers from the Seminar have now been published and are available from the ISSF website. The papers were written and presented by technical experts from Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and seven European countries. They describe a range of experimental and numerical investigations into the structural behaviour of stainless steel members, with a particular emphasis on the behaviour of cold worked grades (that is, material that has been strengthened by cold working). The use of stainless steel in the architectural, building and construction sectors continues to grow. This growth has been underpinned by continuous research and development activities into the structural behaviour of stainless steel around the world to ensure it can be exploited to its full potential in construction. The Second International Stainless Steel Experts Seminar was held in May 2003 in Ascot, UK. It followed on from the first seminar, held in London in September 1998. The Proceedings of the first seminar were published as a special edition of the Journal of Constructional Steel Research (54 (2000) 1-2).
