You get difrent types of steel the two main gatgoreis is W300 and W350 which can resists 300MPa and 350Mpa respectively but a factor that influence compresive strenght is buckling and is in most cases the limiting compresive strenght.

Units for MPa=N/mm2

*The design of a compression member should be done according to your Country's design code

Compressive strength is the ability for a tool steel to resist permanent deformation when a load is applied axially. When a load is applied in compression on a tool steel, the tool will compress in the longitudnal direction and expand outward. When the load is removed the tool will return to its original shape and size. If the tool doesn't return to its original dimensions, then the load has exceeded the tool's compressive strength

# What is Compressive Strength?

Compressive strength measures the largest compression force the material can withstand before it loses its shape or fails.

# What is the tinsel strength of steel?

Answer . You mean tensile strength. Different steels have different tensile strengths. The way they are made (drawn, cast, forged, etc.) is critically important to the tensile strength.. By the way--steel is more important for its stiffness than its tensile strength.

# How do you calculate the compressive strength of a structural steel beam w150 x 30?

I think you mean beam W30x150; where 30 is the nominal depth in inches, and 150 is the weight in pounds per linear foot.. To answer the question about the compression strength, it is all relative to the type of steel, the length of the structural member, and how it is fixed at either end. Is it A-36 or A-50 steel; is it 10 ft. long, or 20 ft. long; is it pinned (bolted) or fixed (welded)? These unknown variables must be addressed before this theoretical value can be calculated.

# What is the compression strength of pine wood?

Im building a bench. Im using 2"x10" pine. Is 5' between braces strong enough? It depends on how many boards your are putting on your bench. To give you an idea, I ran through some quick numbers for you. @ 5'. one 2" x 10" x ?? pine board assuming a 400lb load (2-3 people) you will have deflection of .42" PER board which is fine. Less than 1/2 inch. @ 4' your deflection is reduced to .22" PER board which is even better. You really shouldn't have a problem at 5', unless a 400lb guy jumps on the middle of your bench. The maximum weight it will take in the middle before fracture is 688 lb @ 5'/brace and 860 @ 4'...and keep in mind this is per board so if you have two....you should be fine. This is as long as it is standard pine. .

# What is the compressive strength of Limestone?

Intact Limestone can have a uniaxial compressive strength ranging from: 15 MPa - 290 MPa . A,B . However the following should be noted: . Limestone is a natural earth material and so significant variability in strength and stiffness properties may occur. As such ranges of values are commonly quoted for the strength of rock and other geotechnical materials. Ideally therefore the user would have access to specific lab test data for the rock type in question. Also it is important to note that intact rock strengths require scaling for use in rock engineering as rock masses are usually fractured and discontinuous bodies whose behaviour is often controlled by the shear strength of the discontinuities rather than the intact strength properties of the rock. Considerable care should therefore be taken when attempting to apply intact rock strength parameters derived in the laboratory for use in rock mass engineering design.

# What is the strength of fully hardened steel?

The question is a bit hard to give a definite answer to, because there are so many different techniques and scales used to measure "strength" and "full hardness" for steel. One - an it is only one of several - scales used for measuring hardness of steel is the Rockwell scale, where Rockwell C-60 would be very hard, indeed. Strength - again, what kind of strength do you mean? Torsion strength? Compression strength? Shock strength? Abrasion strength? All of those - and many more - have specific alloys and hardening procedures for optimum results. That's about as specific as I can get, given the broad generality of your question.

# What is the strength of steel reinforced concrete?

# What is tensile strength of tor steel?

Rajuri Thermex TMT500 rebars have excellent bend properties due to the unique ductility (elongation values) obtained when using the German HSE Thermex Technology.. Corrosion Resistance properties Controlled water-cooling prevents the formation of coarse carbides, which has been cited as the main cause for the corrosive nature of common bar. Another reason for better corrosion resistance is the absence of surface stresses caused by the cold twisting (and Torsteel) process.. Weldability Rajuri Thermex TMT500 rebars with carbon content less than 0.25% can be used for butt and other weld joints without reduction in strength at the weld joints.. Fire Resistance Unlike Torsteel and CTD Rebars, Thermex bars have high thermal stability. They are the preferred choice when elevated temperatures of 400-600 C may be encountered (Chimneys, fires).. Earthquake Resistance Thermex rebars have high fatigue resistance to Dynamic/ Seismic loads due to its higher ductility quality. This makes Thermex bars most suitable for use in earthquake prone areas.. Formability Due to very high elongation values and consistent properties through out the length of bar, Thermex rebars have excellent workability and bendability. . Strain Ageing Due to unique and scientific manufacturing process and chemical composition, Thermex rebars show no tendency of embrittlement either during welding or cold deformation of welded joints. . Cost Effective Thermex TMT rebars required 15-20% less usage than CTD bars for same work with cost 5% more than than CTD bars. This results in overall saving of 10-25%. .

# What is the compressive strength of iron ore?

# Why strength of steel decreases with thickness?

The thicker a steel plate, the more susceptible the plate is to brittle fracture behaviour. this is due to a large temperature difference or gradient between the inner and outer plate. When the mass of the thick plate is sufficiently great, the harsh cold temperature will induce stress faster than the material can dissipate and hence fracture. this is why the strength reduces with grade and thickness.

# Why is tensile strength less than compressive strength?

For many ductile materials tensile and compressive strengths are the same. However for brittle materials they are usually stronger in compression becausetensile strenghtis determined by flaws in the material that fail when flaw cracks are opened(tension) but are not subject to closing (compression) concerns.

# What is the actual tensile strength of steel?
