Technical Note 06
Design Guide for Steel at Elevated Temperatures and High Strain Rates
IMPORTANT NOTE: Section 3 of Technical Note 6 has now been superseded by Technical Note 13
This document gives guidance on available elevated temperature and high strain rate material property data for high strength steels used specifically for offshore structures. The guidance covers the data required to carry out both simplified design checks and advanced nonlinear analyses.
Elevated temperature and high strain rate data are presented and discussed for the structural steels specified in BS 7191, Weldable structural steels for fixed offshore structures, based on recent tests.
Elevated temperature and high strain rate data are also presented for grades of stainless steels commonly used on offshore structures and topside facilities (Grade 1.401(304), 1.404 (316), 1.4462 (2205) and 1.4362 (SAF 2304)). These are based on recent tests undertaken with funding from the European Commission and stainless steel industry.
