Steel castings for structural uses - Part 2: Technical delivery conditions

This Part of prEN 10340, in addition to Part 1, specifies technical delivery conditions for steel castings for structural uses in buildings and civil engineering works.
In cases where castings are joined by welding by the founder, this Part of prEN 10340 applies.
This Part does not apply in cases where castings are welded:
-   to wrought products (plates, tubes, forgings...); or
-   by non-founders.

Stahlguss für das Bauwesen - Teil 2: Technische Lieferbedingungen

prEN 10340-2 regelt neben prEN 10340-1 auch die technischen Lieferbedingungen für Stahlgussteile für den Hoch- und Tiefbau.
In Fällen, in denen Gussteile durch Schweißen durch den Gießer zusammengefügt werden, gilt prEN 10340-2.
prEN 10340-2 gilt nicht in Fällen, in denen Gussstücke geschweißt werden:
-   zusammen mit umformbaren Erzeugnissen (Bleche, Rohre, Schmiedestücke, usw.); oder
-   von anderen als Gießern.

Aciers moulés de construction - Partie 2 : Conditions techniques de livraison

Le prEN 10340-2, en complément au prEN 10340-1, spécifie les conditions techniques de livraison des pièces moulées en acier destinées à des utilisations structurales dans le bâtiment et le génie civil.
Dans le cas où les pièces moulées sont assemblées par soudage par le fondeur, le prEN 10340-2 s’applique.
Le prEN 10340-2 ne s'applique pas dans les cas où les pièces moulées sont soudées :
-   à des produits corroyés (plaques, tubes, pièces forgées, etc.) ; ou
-   par des non-fondeurs.

This document (prEN 10340-2:2019) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 459 “ECISS -

European Committee for Iron and Steel Standardization” , the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.

This document is currently submitted to the second CEN Enquiry.

This document together with prEN 10340-1 will supersede EN 10340:2007, which was impacted by

EN 10340:2007/AC:2008.
EN 10340, Steel castings for structural uses, consists of the following parts:
— Part 1: General (current at Enquiry stage);
— Part 2: Technical delivery conditions (this document).

In comparison with EN 10340:2007 and EN 10340:2007/AC:2008, the following significant changes

were made:
— alignment with the specifications of prEN 10340-1;
— new grades were added.

specific physical properties.
7.3 Casting
7.3.1 Chemical composition

When a chemical analysis is required to be carried out on a casting, the permissible deviations shall

conform to those given in Table 1 of EN 1559-2:2014. When applicable, the sampling position shall be

agreed between the purchaser and the manufacturer.
7.3.2 Mechanical properties

When particular properties, e.g. yield strength, tensile strength, hardness, apply to certain areas of the

casting or to the complete casting, these properties shall be agreed by the time of the order. In such

cases, additionally, the position, the shape of the sample, the sampling conditions and the acceptance

criteria shall be agreed between the purchaser and the manufacturer.

In addition to EN 1559-2, the values of yield and tensile strength given in Table 2 also apply to the

casting itself up to the maximum relevant wall thickness stated.
7.3.3 Outer and inner conditions (non-destructive testing)
Specification given in EN 1559-2 shall apply.

7.3.4 Conditions of the casting
Specification given in EN 1559-2 shall apply.
7.3.5 Mass of the casting
Specification given in EN 1559-2 shall apply.
7.3.6 Additional requirements regarding the condition of the casting
Specification given in EN 1559-2 shall apply.
7.4 Corrosion behaviour

Corrosion behaviour can be improved by applying an appropriate surface treatment (e.g. specific

coating, passivation).

Requirements for resistance to intergranular corrosion may be agreed between producer and

purchaser for austenitic and austenitic-ferritic grades (see EN ISO 3651-2).
