ICE Pocket Guide to Steels in the Built Environment is the quick reference guide to using steels in construction projects and structural design. Over 150 steels and subgrades are listed, with each entry containing its naming convention, steel number and a description of its properties, combined with infographics describing the format in which each steel is available. By neatly and definitively bringing key steel information into the one place, while avoiding manufacturer bias, this guide offers users the opportunity to investigate and specify the right steel for each project, based on the properties required. 

Designed to be a quick reference guide for busy practitioners on the go, this book features 

  • non-alloy structural steels 
  • normalised structural steels 
  • thermomechanical-rolled structural steels 
  • weathering steels 
  • quenched and tempered structural steels 
  • steels for structural hollow sections 
  • weldable structural steels 
  • cold-forming steels 
  • structural fasteners 
  • reinforcing steels. 
This pocket book is an essential reference for engineers, specifiers and contractors tasked with choosing steels for built environment projects. Watch an exclusive 'meet the author' video to learn how this book can help you in your career. 

Book Review

This handy reference book provides a comprehensive overview of the many types of steel that are commonly used in construction. Much of the information would also available in the relevant product standards for these steels but that requires access to multiple documents and knowing where to look. This guide takes that hassle away and will be particularly useful to those who are less familiar with steel grades and their product standards.

This ‘Pocket Guide’ is written and presented as a concise guide to structural steel grades and their characteristics as used in buildings and the built environment, which is assumed to include bridges. It brings together information presented in disparate set of EN standards and summarises their structural data in a unified form to assist specifiers in their choice of steel specification. The information presented in a single page format, making it easy to ‘thumb through’.
