Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Structural Engineering in Natural Hazards Mitigation
Abstract: With the development of the Quenching and Self-Tempering (QST) process by the Luxembourg steelmaker ARBED S.A., a new generation of High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) rolled shapes has become available. This paper discusses the QST process, the mechanical properties and weldability. It also touches on some design aspects and the economy of HSLA rolled shapes, used as compression members.
