Structural steels are carbon-manganese steels with guaranteed minimum mechanical properties (yield strength and tensile strength) and with satisfactory ductility, and are suitable for most common applications. They are readily available from distributors in the most common forms and dimensions.
Structural steels offer good weldability with all conventional welding processes. In most cases pre- or post-heat treatment is not necessary. In addition to their excellent mechanical properties, structural steels have satisfactory toughness values.
Using grades with excellent mechanical properties like S420 and S460 will allow to improve design properties.
