Moving Forward with High-Strength Steel [CA4a]For decades, ASTM A913 steel has been specified for use in structural systems throughout the world, resulting in hundreds of projects that feature this unique material. This high-strength, low-alloy, quenched and self-tempered (QST) steel has helped save millions of dollars in project costs, by reducing the weight of the structure, simplifying fabrication procedures and enabling more efficient field welding. In this session, attendees will get clarification on the differences between materials produced to the ASTM A913 specification and comparable standards; review the benefits regarding the structural efficiency, simplifying fabrication and erection and reduced schedule and owner costs; and learn how the in-line QST system revolutionized the thermo-mechanically controlled rolling process and enabled manufacturers to create high-strength steels with low alloy contents, excellent toughness and outstanding weldability.
