The particular characteristics of structural steel offer optimal solutions that satisfy architectural, engineering, and economic aspects.
ArcelorMittal Europe’s trademark steels are HISTAR® and FRITENAR® - structural steel grades combining high strength, good toughness, and superior weldability, exceeding requirements and offering supplementary guarantees.
The solution for lightweight, long-spanning structural elements is to implement the castellated ACB® and Angelina® beams. With their circular and sinusoidal web openings, they elegantly combine function with flexibility.
CoSFB (Composite slim floor beams) integrates the advantages of composite design with traditional slim floor construction.

LVS3 Large Valorisation on Sustainability of Steel Structures - AMECO
The technical objective of the LVS3 project is to disseminate knowledge acquired in recent years about the environmental impact assessment of steel and composite buildings. During the last decade, a lot of research projects have been funded to develop methodologies, systems, and products aimed at improving thermal efficiency as well as the global environmental footprint of steel buildings. The new EN 15804 standard, intended for environmental calculation of buildings, now takes into account the fact that steel is a recyclable material (Module D).Article

Iconic. A piece of art. The symbol of Paris. The Eiffel Tower is the best known example worldwide of structural steel architecture. The design and dimensioning of modern buildings requires careful consideration of many factors such as technical requirements including building physics, architecture, and cost-effectiveness.
ArcelorMittal also offers a number of pre-design tools in order to support engineers in the use and calculation of our range of steel products and solutions. These free tools cover various design aspects of steel and composite structures in accordance with Eurocodes (beams, columns, castellated beams, slim floor solutions, steel grades, connections, etc.), different performances (e.g. fire & seismic calculations, life cycle assessment, and cost estimation), and construction types.
Our technical team is always at your disposal and will gladly assist you by answering all of your questions in order to provide you with the most beneficial offer.
