"T-1" STEEL: A PROVEN ENGINEERING MATERIAL

"T-1" HEAT-TREATED ALLOY STEEL OFFERS A YIELD STRENGTH APPROXIMATELY THREE TIMES THAT OF CONVENTIONAL STURCTURAL CARBON STEEL. AT THIS HIGH STRENGTH LEVEL, IT HAS DUCTILITY AND TOUGHNESS SUITABLE FOR ALL STRUCTUAL APPLICATIONS AND CAN BE WELDED. FEATURES OF INTEREST TO STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS, INCLUDING FABRICATION, WELDING, CORROSION RESISTANCE, AND COLUMN STRENGTH, ARE DISCUSSED. EXAMPLES OF PROVEN APPLICATIONS IN HEAVY-DUTY EQUIPMENT ARE GIVEN. THE PAPER CONCLUDES WITH A BRIEF HISTORY OF ALLOY STEELS IN BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION, AND SOME SUGGESTIONS REGARDING THE USE OF "T-1" STEEL THEREIN. /AUTHOR/
