Stainless steel guidance

A new technical report from the Concrete Society, Guidance on the use of stainless steel reinforcement, provides engineers with practical advice on designing, specifying and using stainless steel reinforcement for concrete.

Mike Walker, convenor of the steering committee that prepared the report, and manager of the Concrete Society Technical Development Centre, says: 'The new report is intended to help engineers decide when and where stainless steel could or should be used and to act as an easy to use design manual.'

The report explains the ranges available, with a description of how stainless steel reinforcement is specified in the UK and overseas, and a summary of its benefits. Details of its mechanical and corrosion resistance properties form the basis of the design guidance in the main section of the report. Brief details of projects where stainless steel reinforcement has been used, and where life cycle costing has been investigated, are also included.
