The Welding Institute’s Structures and Infrastructure Technical Group will be hosting an online event titled, ‘The Use of High Strength Steels for Structures,’ on the 27 April 2022.
With standards covering the design, execution and materials for use in structural steelwork all now including high strength steels up to S960, it is expected that these higher steel grades will be specified in the future as the drive for carbon reduction intensifies. However, 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.
This event will examine some of the challenges that should be considered and how they might be addressed.
The event will be of particular interest to designers, fabricators, engineers, inspectors, managers.
Our panel of speakers include:
Simeon Tulip, Engineering Manager - Metallurgy, 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’
