What are the Mechanical properties of steel

     Mechanical properties of steel incorporate a variety of properties, including: hardness, toughness, lastingness, yield strength, elongation, fatigue strength, corrosion, plasticity, plasticity and creep. The properties that are most significant in construction is,

Mechanical properties of steel

  • Tensile strength: At the low end, values are approximately 250 N/mm2; at the high end, tensile strength is as high as 500 N/mm2.

      Eg. Fe 250″ is steel with a tensile strength of 250 N/mm2. 

  • Compressive strength: Steel also has compressive resistance
  • Hardness: Steel can be undergoes wear and tear, Friction too
  • Toughness: Steel can bear the impact load.
  • Ductility: Steel is ductile material and can be transformed into any shape.
  • Malleability: steel is malleable and can be drawn wire from it.
  • Flexibility: It is a flexible material which make ease in formation of different shape.
