1 STSS Simple Tools Sell Steel

2 Simple Tools Sell Steel (STSS) PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY PARTICIPANTS IMS ACTIVITY Development of new methods for prediction of performance and characterisation of resistance in design applications for new high strength steels are needed Objectives are to remove the cumbersome complexity of the calculation methods and to provide efficient tools Research, develop and disseminate new calculation methods and tools Direct Strength Method – Lead Continuous Strength Method – Lead Overall Interaction Concept – Lead Planned project launch March, 2012 STANDARDS Major Steel Producers Steel Fabricators Structural Steel Associations Construction Design Engineering Firms Structural Steel Research Institutions Universities Structural Steel Resistance New Methods and Tools

3 SSTS - Project Rationale In order to use structural steel in buildings, bridges, and any other applications, design engineers must calculate the resistances to ensure design safety. Current calculation methods are cumbersome and will not accommodate advances in new materials. Because incremental improvements of existing methods will not be successful, this project starts from the perspective of new methods, revolutionary in character, and appropriate for the materials of today and tomorrow.

4 SSTS – The Big Picture The core of this project is the development and assessment of new design methods for steel structures. Simple design formulae and application software will be eventually embedded in standards and must therefore anticipate now, the needs of tomorrow The developed methods must be able to: – Calculate the resistance of sections and members – Include a possible influence of shear stresses – Offer the possibility to resort to either elastic or plastic analysis Common structural steels and non-linear materials (stainless steel, aluminium) in various cross-sectional shapes, either open or hollow, must be able to be included in the analysis.

5 STSS Project Business Architecture

6 STSS Basic Concept Overall Interaction Concept (OIC) – Basis: interaction between Resistance and Instability – Generalizes relative slenderness concept to: Sections and Members Basic loading cases as well as complex ones

7 SSTS Benefits of Overall Interaction Concept Simple, consistent, rational (economic) Allows for direct design calculations: – effective and efficient analytical framework Pave the way for tomorrows high strength steels Removes disadvantages embedded with cross- section classification system – effective properties, discontinuities, inconsistencies Simple application tools to be made available for an efficient and practical use

8 STSS Project Work Plan

9 Cross-Sectional and Member Resistance I and H-shaped Sections Cross-Sectional and Member Resistance Hollow or Tubular Sections Behaviour of Non-linear Materials, including Strain Hardening Effects Influence of Shear Stresses on Cross-sectional Resistance Development of Criteria to allow for Plastic Analysis Development of Practical Tools and Design Formulae WP 7 - Incorporation of Design Formulae into Design Standards WP 7 - Incorporation of Design Formulae into Design Standards

10 STSS Project Work Package One Develop and assess the Overall Interaction Concept to provide accurate estimates of the resistance of Open Sections, for both Sections and Members. Lead – Prof. Jean-Pierre Jaspart – University of Liège – Belgium. Confirmed Partners: ArcelorMittal – Luxembourg; College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, Johns Hopkins University, Imperial College London; Technical University of Graz. To be invited – Tata Steel, United Kingdom; AISI/AISC/Nucor – USA; POSCO – Korea.

11 STSS Project Work Package Two Develop and assess the Overall Interaction Concept to provide accurate estimates of the resistance of Hollow Sections, for both Sections and Members. Lead – Prof. Nicolas Boissonnade – College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg – Switzerland.

12 STSS Project Work Package Three Extend the scope of the Overall Interaction Concept to include the behaviour of non-linear materials and to benefit from the inclusion of strain hardening effects. Lead – Dr Leroy Gardner – Imperial College London – England.

14 STSS Project Work Package Five The removal of Classes within the Overall Interaction Concept requires the development of a set of new criteria for Plastic Analysis. Lead – Prof. Nicolas Boissonnade – College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg – Switzerland. Confirmed Partners: Voestalpine Krems – Austria; Brütsch-Ruegger – Switzerland; Stahl Gerlafingen – Switzerland; University of Liège, Imperial College London, Technical University of Lisbon, Technical University of Graz, Johns Hopkins University, Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA – USA).

15 STSS Project Work Package Six Based on the Overall Interaction Concept as developed in WPs 1,2,3, and 4, provide practical tools and design formulae to structural engineers for resistance calculations in project design. These tools and formulae will be prepared in a manner consistent with building codes for ease of promulgation and adoption as national standards. Lead – Prof. Dinar Camotin – Technical University of Lisbon – Portugal. Confirmed Partners: College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, University of Liège, Imperial College London, Johns Hopkins University. To be invited – ArcelorMittal – Luxembourg; Tata Steel, United Kingdom; AISI/AISC/Nucor – USA; POSCO – Korea, CIDECT; Grupo Condesa, Spain; Vallourec & Mannesmann Tubes, Germany.

16 STSS Project Work Package Seven The various developed design formulae are developed in a code-ready format, with the intention to see them incorporated in design standards worldwide. Lead – Prof. Nicolas Boissonnade – College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg – Switzerland. Confirmed Partners: University of Liège, Imperial College London, Johns Hopkins University, Virginia Tech, Technical University of Lisbon, Technical University of Graz. WP 7 - Incorporation of Design Formulae into Design Standards WP 7 - Incorporation of Design Formulae into Design Standards

17 STSS Project Timing The project will begin in Q1 of 2012 and is expected to have a duration of five years. Parts of WPs 1, 2, 3 and 4 have already been launched.
