Structural steels
possess high strength
and toughness, resistance to softening at elevated
temperatures and enough resistance to corrosion. In addition, they should
possess
weldability, workability and
high
hardenability. The principal
alloying elements in structural steels
are chromium,
nickel and manganese. These steels has various applications which are given as
under:

Applications of Structural steels

They are used for structural
members of bridges, buildings, rail road, cars etc. They are also used for
manufacturing components subjected to static and dynamic loads. These
components include valves, pins, studs, gears, clutches, bushes, shafts etc.
