Steel Structure – The Future of Structure

STEEL STRUCTURE APPLICATION

Structural steel has many applications across a wide range of industries namely, construction, manufacturing, transport, mining, shipbuilding, energy, and packaging. It is the most preferred metal by architects, designers, engineers, contractors, and fabricators. It is highly durable, corrosion resistant, tensile and affordable. Below listed are a few structural steel applications in different industrial sectors:
capability

1. Construction

Structural steel has multiple applications in the construction industry. It is used in designing and building industrial spaces. Structural steel has a high strength to weight ratio which makes it ideal to use in the construction of large structures such as buildings, warehouses, bridges, factories etc. Beams, steel frames, columns, bars, girders, plates and many others are created by structural steel fabricators which are used in the construction industry.

capability

2. Transport

Structural steel is used to manufacture trucks, transmissions, trains, rails and ships, anchor chains, aircraft undercarriages, and jet engine components. Most of these vehicles contain a good proportion of structural steel. Engineers and designers opt for structural steel because of its elasticity, corrosion resistance, tensile strength, ductility, malleability, and affordability.

capability

3. Mining

The mining industry has many applications of structural steel. Most of the elements in the mining infrastructure are built using structural steel. All workshops, offices, structural elements of mines such as mining screens, fluidized bed boilers, buildings are made using structural steel. Structural steel is easy to clean because of its smooth surface thereby making it an ideal choice for the mining industry.

capability

4. Ship Building

Most marine vehicles are created using structural steel. It is used to make supertankers, submarines, boats, ladders, steel flooring and grating, stairs and fabricated sections of steel. Structural steel can withstand a lot of external pressure, it does not rust and can be molded into any shape easily; these qualities makes structural steel extremely useful in the shipbuilding industry.

capability

5. Energy

There are many structural steel applications in the energy sector. Energy sector comprises of wind power, nuclear power, electric power and natural gas. A lot of the industrial structures such as transmission towers, pipelines, wind turbines, electromagnets, transformer cores, oil and gas wells are made using structural steel. Apart from this, there are many other structural steel applications in the energy sector.

capability

6. WPackaging

Steel is considered to be a good element for packaging as it protects the products from water, air, light exposure, and contaminants. The steel used in packaging is usually tin coated to prevent corrosion. Food, beverage containers, bottle caps and other closures are made using structural steel. “Packaging steel is made of low carbon cold rolled steel strip, and are surface finished.”

APPLICATION OF STRUCTURAL STEEL IN CONTRUCTION

Nowadays, steel structure is used in many types of structure applications such as: high-rise buildings, heavy industrial plants, airports, infrastructures… all over the world.

6 reasons why steel structure is the best choice?

Initiating a building project requires major decisions, including the choice of material for the structure. A steel structure offers a variety of important benefits that include resilience, wind and earthquake resistance and structural integrity.

The choice of a steel structure is always economical, so take a look at the other reasons to use steel:

capability

1. Cost Savings

Steel structure is the cost leader for most projects in materials and design. It is inexpensive to manufacture and erection, requires less maintenance than other traditional building methods.

capability

2. Creativity

Steel has a natural beauty that most architects can’t wait to take advantage of. Steel allows for long column-free spans and you can have a lot of natural light if you want it in any shape of structures.

capability

3. Control and Management

Steel structures is fabricated at factory and rapidly erected at construction site by skilled personnel that makes safe construction process. Industry surveys consistently demonstrate that steel structures is the optimal solution in management.

capability

4. Durability

It can withstand extreme forces or harsh weather conditions, such as strong winds, earthquakes, hurricanes and heavy snow. They are also unreceptive to rust and, unlike wood frames, they are not affected by termites, bugs, mildew, mold and fungi.

capability

5. Energy Efficiency

Nowadays, pre-engineered buildings are the green solution for the environment with CO2 reduction, energy efficiency and recyclability.

capability

6. Wind and Earthquake Resistance

Steel structures provide increased strength and ductility when compared with other building materials, offering resistance to natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes.
