Taking car parks to the next level with Magnelis®27 October 2020
Demand for convenient car parking is rising dramatically. However, the land available for parking is severely limited in many locations. This is making multi-storey car parks a very attractive option in city centres, near transport hubs, and at public buildings such as hospitals. To meet this demand in a cost-effective way, Kingspan, a leading building materials company, has developed a complete portfolio of solutions for car park builders. A key element is Magnelis® from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products which Kingspan uses to form the deck of each level in the car park. As well as cost-effective forming and quick assembly, Magnelis® offers long-term protection against corrosion to ensure the safety and viability of parking structures.
HISTAR® 460 makes a grand entrance in Central America15 October 2020
Due to political and economic issues, as well as a concrete-oriented culture, steel is not a preferred solution in Central America. However, the trend may soon reverse thanks to the first project in the region involving HISTAR®. Beams produced by ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products’ Differdange mill were used to build a new bridge in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.
Wind energy: steels for towers and turbines13 October 2020
With existing wind towers using up to 180 tonnes of heavy plate and hundreds of individual towers in a wind farm, the logistics of ensuring just-in-time deliveries of steel are critical for success. ArcelorMittal’s global footprint enables us to meet the needs of some of the leading players in this market – wherever they are located.
Performance and capacity of composite mega columns with encased hot rolled steel sections
The optimisation of construction materials, including the size reduction of structural system components, is fundamental in the modern construction of high-rise buildings. Composite structural components consisting of concrete and steel are a sustainable solution. This research paper investigates the use of composite mega columns, with hot-rolled steel sections fixed in concrete, as vertical structural systems. Tests were conducted to explore maximum capacity, displacements, stress distribution, ductility, and stiffness, culminating in suggested simplified design methods based on European, Chinese, and American codes.
