Classification of Steel Sections

Classification of Steel Sections - 11/08/16

Once again welcome back to the drawing board with me Steven Lloyd, you may remember a little while ago we talked about the design of waling beam with combined effects, we had a look at von mises stresses, we had a think about plastic and elastic properties of the beam. 

Now what determines whether you consider a beam to be plastic or elastic, well that’s it's classification and today we will be looking at the classification of steel sections. This only applies to structural steel; stainless steel and aluminium have different material properties so the criteria involved is slightly different there. So this applies to structural steel, grades s235, s355 and so on, the kind that are covered in Eurocode part 3.
