Hi Pedro, I'd suggest that you research the exact properties you need (Should be available on the Internet in some database...) and input them as a custom property. Then you aren't reliant on "close enough" as you would be with only library materials.
thanks for your response...
i have been searching and i found that the most common material for the structural steel is the BSEN 10025 S275JR, the equivalence in ASTM is A570 grade 36, so i used www.matweb.com that gives me the exactly mechanical properties of the ASTM 570 grade 36. The most dificult part was find that the most comon is BSEN 10025 S275JR.
I still have some doubts about why the BSEN 10025 S257 wans't in matweb.com list... how should i search for it?
many thanks for your help...
I'd do a general Google search. I've often found properties in technical papers that didn't appear in standard databases. Please remember to try to find two sources for materials in a paper. Just because it is published doesn't make it correct!
Attached 2 tables here,they may help to give some search clues, to similar materials; probably not the last version, but may be of some use. MatWeb is one page I like. Any chance that the two digits 5 and 7 is swapped? s 275 I know of, but I haven't heard of 257.
Can find some more of the values for S 275, I think...
hi, great information... many thanks.
Yeah i think the 5 and 7 are swapped. I after doing a huge study about this case, i have contacted 3 suppliers of structural steel which have told me the most common material used and certified in Europe for these elements are the S275JR, by the EN10025.
More details about this material and mechanical properties can be found here for example and how you can see in this table there is no record of any S257 :S
