Abstract

The application of stainless steel in structures is limited by its high cost compared to the more widely used carbon steel. Efficient use of the nonlinear and strain hardening material properties of stainless steel provides one way in which the initial cost may be reduced. During plastic deformation the increase in yield strength caused by cold working is more significant for stainless steel than carbon steel and it occurs in manufacturing cold rolled sheet material and in forming the sheet material into cold formed sections. The presented experimental program maps the strength increase from the codes minimum design values that are observed in press braked and cold rolled sections, most notably in the highly formed corner material. The distribution of material properties in hot rolled sections are also investigated. Associated with plastic deformation is the creation of residual stresses, the measurement of which have been made in the same hot rolled, press braked and cold rolled sections.
