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.
Harvesting energy from wind21 July 2020
Challenges as wind turbine producers aim to meet demand for more powerful generatorsIn late 2019, the European Union unveiled its ‘Green Deal’ – a roadmap of actions which will help the bloc to boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean and circular economy. Increasing the availability of renewable energy – and wind in particular – is a cornerstone of the Green Deal and will see wind energy account for at least half of Europe’s electricity needs by 2050. Meeting this demand will require Europe to install over twice as much new wind energy each year as it managed in 2019. Achieving that target will require significant efforts from electrical steel producers and manufacturers of wind power generators such as ArcelorMittal customer, Indar Wind Energy.Industry News
Corrosion protection: an integral part of the fabrication process for steel structures
When it comes to choosing materials, steel, because of its exceptional physical and mechanical characteristics, is the most popular amongst designers. It can be used to rapidly build economical, durable, and safe structures. The steel used to make hot-rolled sections, which can themselves be indefinitely recycled, is made from recycled scrap. It is particularly suitable for machining and shaping. However, it tends to react with agents in the atmosphere to form stable thermodynamic bonds – ferrous oxides and/or salts.The ability of steel to revert to its natural or original state is called corrosion. In layman’s terms: steel rusts!Article

ArcelorMittal Europe sets out path to net zero by 20508 July 2020
ArcelorMittal Europe has set out the path to net zero by 2050, with pioneering technologies at the forefront of the company’s roadmap for carbon-neutral steelmaking. Europe’s largest steelmaker, unveils breakthrough technologies that will take the company to 30% lower CO2 emissions by 2030, and carbon neutrality by 2050. ArcelorMittal Europe is investing in two routes to carbon neutrality, Smart Carbon and an innovative DRI-based route, in recognition of the need to act now to reduce CO2 emissions, in line with the EU’s Green Deal and the Paris Agreement. Calls for new policy framework, to support the industry in its transition to carbon neutrality, name five market conditions that are needed for Europe’s steelmakers to compete globally.Corporate News

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.
