Selection of steel sub-grade in accordance with the Eurocodes

This technical document considers why and how brittle fractures may occur in steelwork and how it may be minimised by the specification of an appropriate steel quality or sub-grade.

It offers guidance on the selection of steel sub-grade, combining the best guidance from established approaches BS EN 1993-1-10, the associated UK National Annex and  PD 6695-1-10 as well as other non-contradictory complementary information.

Additionally, it offers three worked examples that demonstrate the full procedure when selecting a steel sub-grade.
