Brittle Fracture: Selection of Steel Sub-Grade to BS EN 1993-1-10 (P419)

This guide explains how an approach based on fracture mechanics, which is a method permitted in BS EN 1993-1-10, may be used to determine the required steel sub-grade.
£45.00

This guide explains how an approach based on fracture mechanics, which is a method permitted in BS EN 1993-1-10, may be used to determine the required steel sub-grade. Application of the procedures in this guide should be limited to quasi-static structures, where fatigue is not a design consideration.

This guide was prepared by David Brown of the Steel Construction Institute (SCI), with valuable input from Tom Cosgrove of the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA). Particular thanks are due to John Gradwell of Severfield (UK) Limied, who initially demonstrated the application of a fracture mechanics approach. Subsequently, the University of Aachen was engaged by BCSA to develop the approach for quasi-static structures, which defins the scope for the procedures and guidance presented in this guide.
