Steel is a widely used material in construction because of its availability, high strength-to-weight ratio, and recyclability. However, steel manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, and there is an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly building materials. Consequently, high-strength steel is becoming more popular as it reduces the...

The production reality of sheet steels from casting to the end product is such that in the cases of ultra- and advanced high-strength steels, we have to deal with the segregation of elements on macro- and microlevels. Both can have a significant impact on the microstructure formation and resulting properties. There are several production stages...

This paper aims to assess the influence of geometrical imperfections and residual stresses on the reliability of the stability design rules for steel columns in Eurocode 3 considering a full probabilistic approach and further validate the new buckling curves in the scope of the ongoing revision of the Structural Eurocodes. A reliability...

To mitigate global warming, society must reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The transportation sector is one of the largest energy consumers and greenhouse gas emitters. One way to mitigate the emissions of this sector is to reduce the weight of vehicles using Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS), particularly dual phase steels (DP). However,...

The use of materials in increasingly severe service conditions raises concerns about structural safety with respect to cleavage fracture. There are three main material-related challenges that structures face under harsh environments: 1) the trade-off between strength and toughness; 2) the ductile-to-brittle transition behaviour of BCC high...

High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

Thick-section high strength steels (HSS) are widely used in engineering applications with requirements of high toughness and strength. Structural components are commonly joined by welding, known to significantly degrade the mechanical properties of steel due to changes in microstructure (e.g., grain size coarsening and martensite-austenite (M-A)...

The newest version of prEN 1993-1-8 (2022) prescribes a material factor (Cf) to reduce the design resistance of welded joints made of high strength steel (HSS) mostly due to the lack of available experiments, given the less ductility of HSS compared to mild steel. Additionally, it is stated that the material design yield strength should not...

High-strength steel beams are known to have less plastic rotation capacity than beams with lower yield strengths. This has been related to the decreased strain-hardening ability of high-strength steels, and various rules and standards for steel structures stipulate maximum limits on the allowable yield-to-tensile strength ratio ((Formula...

High strength steels are widely used for structural applications, where a combination of excellent strength and ductile-to-brittle transition (DBT) properties are required. However, such a combination of high strength and toughness can be deteriorated in the heat affected zone (HAZ) after welding. This work aims to develop a relationship...

This paper reports an investigation on the tensile resistance of fully-penetrated butt-welded connections of (ultra-)high-strength steels considering the strength softening of the heat-affected zone (HAZ) and the strengthening due to the transverse constraint. Firstly, a parametric study is carried out to analyse the tensile behaviour of...

Additive manufacturing offers a significant potential for producing metallic parts with distinctly localised microstructures and mechanical properties, commonly known as functional grading. While functional grading is generally accomplished through compositional variations or in-situ thermo-mechanical treatments, variation of process...

A welded connection consists of three main material zones, the base material (BM), the heat-affect zone (HAZ), and the weld metal (WM). The strength of HAZ depends on the BM grade and manufacturing process, electrode grade, and welding parameters. Under certain conditions, HAZ has the lowest material strength, especially for high-strength...

In recent decades, high strength steels in thick sections have been increasingly used in offshore structures where they are subjected to harsh service conditions such as freezing temperatures and high static/dynamic loading. At these conditions they are susceptible to a transition from ductile failure to a dangerous brittle (cleavage)...

The article focuses on the effect of alloying and microstructure on formability of advanced high strength steels (AHSSs) processed via quenching and partitioning (Q&P). Three different Q&P steels with different combination of alloying elements and volume fraction of retained austenite are subjected to uniaxial tensile and Nakajima...

The heat-affected zone (HAZ) is an unmelted region of a welded joint that has changed in material properties because of high temperatures during the welding process. HAZ has a lower strength than the base (parent) material (BM) and the weld metal (WM). The lower material strength is more significant if BM is made of high strength steel and...

In this study, existing deformation limits are first re-examined to investigate if they can be rationally extended to high strength steel circular hollow section (CHS) joints that are subjected to in-plane bending (IPB) moment. It is pointed out that existing deformation limits, which have been developed and validated primarily for mild steel...

The development of the quenching and partitioning (Q&P) process has prompted an interest in the process of isothermal transformation in presence of a pre-existing phase such as martensite. The presence of prior martensite is known to accelerate the overall kinetics of bainite formation, both in the 1-step and 2-step Q&P process. The...

A welded rectangular hollow section (RHS) X-joint exposed to tension loading has three typical fracture-related failure modes: Punching shear failure (PSF), Brace failure (BF), and Chord side wall failure (CSWF). Prediction of these failure modes by finite element (FE) simulations requires modelling of the material damage. An appropriate...

Application of high-strength steels in the maritime and offshore industry is currently limited by rules governing the ratio of the yield to tensile strength (the Y/T ratio). To better understand the physical basis for these rules, the nature and extent of the plastic stress/strain field in the vicinity of a stress concentration (a circular...
