  1. Structural design of stainless steel

    Basic design data for the grades of stainless steel typically used in structural applications are presented. This includes design strength (py), expressed as the specified proof strength, Young's modulus (modulus of elasiticity), Poissons ratio, shear modulus, density, thermal expansion coefficient, thermal conductivity and heat capacity. Brief guidance on designing structural stainless steel is also given, where the differences between carbon steel and stainless steel's buckling resistance and member deflections are explained. Grades listed include type 304 304L 316 316L and 2205, European steel grades 1.4301 1.4307 1.4401 1.4404 1.4462 duplex (141)

  2. Structural Sections in Stainless Steel

    Structural stainless steel sections are being used increasingly as the particular characteristics of stainless steel are more widely understood. This article provides a link to the Stainless Steel Sections Directory which shows data on the sections available and the potential suppliers of such sections
