Stainless Steel in Civil Engineering Applications

Paper originally delivered at the BSSA Conference 'Stainless Solutions for a Sustainable Future' held in Rotherham on 3rd April 2003. The paper considers the problem of durability with conventional construction materials in relation to concrete reinforcement and structural applications including bridges, but could be applied equally to other civil engineering structures. The UK Highways Agency advice note BA84/02 and BS 6744 are discussed in relation to reinforcement , pointing out the advantages of stainless steel as a concrete reinforcing steel. Durability and aesthetic appeal are advantages for stainless steels in structural applications. The paper gives a variety of examples where stainless steels have been used.
