Synopsis

 There is a growing need for high performance materials in the built environment that offer improved durability, strength, resilience and lifespan. This seminar will give an introduction to the characteristics of the different stainless steel alloy families and explain how to select an appropriate alloy for a service environment and application. The properties and structural response of stainless steel will be compared with carbon steel and aluminium. A series of case studies will illustrate applications of stainless steel around the world.
