Technical Group Event: High Strength Steels for Structures

Tue, 22 March, 2022

The Use of High Strength Steels for Structures

27 April 2022, 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM (UK Time)

Standards that cover the design, execution and materials for use in structural steelwork all now include high strength steels up to S960. It’s expected that these higher steel grades will be specified in the future as the drive for carbon reduction intensifies.

With that being said, the execution of these standards and general experience in the structural steelwork industry may not yet meet the challenges that these higher strength steels will present.

The Welding Institute’s Structures and Infrastructure Technical Group online event titled, ‘The Use of High Strength Steels for Structures,’ will examine some of the challenges that should be considered and how they might be addressed.

Topics covered will be of particular interest to designers, fabricators, engineers, inspectors, managers.

Speaker Panel:

- Simeon Tulip, Metallurgy Engineering Manager, BAE Systems Submarines - ‘Manufacture of High Strength Steels’

- Tom Cosgrove, Fabrication and Welding Consultant, Sandberg LLP – ‘High Strength Steel Design Considerations’

- Jeff Garner, Welding Consultant, Manor Welding Technology Ltd. – ‘Welding of High Strength Steels’
