Hot finished steel structural hollow sections - Part 1: Technical delivery conditions

This part of this European Standard specifies technical delivery conditions for hot-finished seamless, electric welded and submerged arc welded steel structural hollow sections of circular, square, rectangular or elliptical forms.
It applies to hollow sections formed hot, with or without subsequent heat treatment, or formed cold with subsequent heat treatment above 580 °C to obtain equivalent mechanical conditions to those obtained in the hot formed product.
The general conditions (product characteristics, test methods and performance criteria that apply under the Construction Products Regulations) are specified in prEN 10210-1 and the requirements for tolerances, dimensions and sectional properties in prEN 10210-3.
NOTE 1    prEN 10210-1 covers provision of the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) to fulfil European law for construction products. The technical delivery conditions are described within prEN 10210-2 in combination with Clauses 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 of prEN 10210-1.
NOTE 2   The attention of users is drawn to the fact that whilst cold formed grades in prEN 10219-2 can have equivalent mechanical properties to hot-finished grades in prEN 10210-2 the sectional properties of square and rectangular hollow sections in prEN 10210-3 and prEN 10219-3 are not equivalent.
NOTE 3   A range of material grades is specified in this standard and the user should select the grade most appropriate to the intended use and service conditions. The grades and mechanical properties of the finished hollow sections are comparable with those in EN 10025-2, EN 10025-3, EN 10025-4, EN 10025-5 and EN 10025-6.
NOTE 4   Seamless and welded hollow sections for offshore structures are covered in EN 10225.

European foreword

This document (prEN 10210-2:2016) has been prepared by Technical Committee ECISS/TC 103

“Structural steels other than reinforcements”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN.

This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 10210-1:2006.

This standard consists of the following parts under the general title 'Hot finished structural steel hollow

sections:
— Part 1: General
— Part 2: Technical delivery conditions
— Part 3: Tolerances, dimensions and sectional properties

It forms part of a series of standards on hollow sections together with prEN 10219-1 to prEN 10219-3.

1 Scope

This part of this European Standard specifies technical delivery conditions for hot-finished seamless,

electric welded and submerged arc welded steel structural hollow sections of circular, square,

rectangular or elliptical forms.

It applies to hollow sections formed hot, with or without subsequent heat treatment, or formed cold

with subsequent heat treatment above 580 °C to obtain equivalent mechanical conditions to those

obtained in the hot formed product.

The general conditions (product characteristics, test methods and performance criteria that apply

under the Construction Products Regulations) are specified in prEN 10210-1 and the requirements for

tolerances, dimensions and sectional properties in prEN 10210-3.

NOTE 1 prEN 10210-1 covers provision of the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) to fulfil European law

for construction products. The technical delivery conditions are described within prEN 10210-2 in combination

with Clauses 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 of prEN 10210-1.

NOTE 2 The attention of users is drawn to the fact that whilst cold formed grades in prEN 10219-2 can have

equivalent mechanical properties to hot-finished grades in prEN 10210-2 the sectional properties of square and

rectangular hollow sections in prEN 10210-3 and prEN 10219-3 are not equivalent.

NOTE 3 A range of material grades is specified in this standard and the user should select the grade most

appropriate to the intended use and service conditions. The grades and mechanical properties of the finished

hollow sections are comparable with those in EN 10025-2, EN 10025-3, EN 10025-4, EN 10025-5 and EN 10025-6.

NOTE 4 Seamless and welded hollow sections for offshore structures are covered in EN 10225.

welds used to join the lengths of strip prior to forming the hollow section, except as permitted in 10.4.3.

6.4.2 Electric welded hollow sections shall be supplied with the external weld bead trimmed to an

essentially flush condition. Trimming of the internal weld bead is at the discretion of the manufacturer

unless Option 2.1 is specified.

Option 2.1 Electric welded hollow sections shall be supplied with the internal weld bead trimmed, the

maximum height of the internal weld bead after trimming shall be agreed at the time of enquiry and

order.

6.4.3 All NDT activities shall be carried out by qualified and competent level 1, 2 and/or 3 personnel

authorised to operate by the employer.

The qualification shall be in accordance with ISO 11484 or, at least, an equivalent to it.

It is recommended that the level 3 personnel be certified in accordance with EN ISO 9712 or, at least, an

equivalent to it.

The operating authorisation issued by the employer shall be in accordance with a written procedure.

NDT operations shall be authorised by a level 3 NDT individual approved by the employer.

NOTE The definition of levels 1, 2 and 3 can be found in the appropriate standards, e.g. EN ISO 9712 and

ISO 11484.
6.5 Delivery condition
The products shall be delivered in the conditions indicated below:
— Qualities JR, J0, J2 and K2 — hot finished,

— Qualities N and NL — full body normalized. Normalized includes normalized rolled and normalized

formed,
— Qualities M and ML – thermomechanical rolled,
— Qualities Q, QL and QL1 — quenched and tempered.

For steels of qualities JR, J0, J2, K2 of Annex A and steel of qualities N, NL of Annex B it may be necessary

for hollow sections to apply accelerated cooling after austenitizing to achieve the intended structure, or

liquid quenching and tempering to achieve the specified mechanical properties. The decision shall be

left to the discretion of the manufacturer, but shall be stated to the purchaser at the time of enquiry and

order. Hollow sections treated in such a way by quenching and tempering shall be designated by the

steel name supplemented with the symbol "+QT".
7 Requirements
7.1 Chemical composition

7.1.1 In addition to prEN 10210-1:2016, 4.1 the following option can be specified by the purchaser at

the time of enquiry and order:

Option 2.2 For products supplied with specific inspection and testing, a product analysis shall be

reported.

Deviations of the product analysis from the specified limits of the cast analysis shall be in accordance

with Table 1.
7.1.2 For non-alloy steel products the following option may be specified:

Option 2.3 The recording on the inspection certificate of the Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, Ti and V content (cast

analysis).

7.1.3 When products are supplied with a control on Si e.g. for hot-dip zinc-coating so that there could

be a need to increase the content of other elements like C and Mn to achieve the required tensile

properties, the maximum carbon equivalent values of Tables A.2 to E.2 shall be increased as follows:

— for Si ≤ 0,04 %, increase the value of the CEV by 0,02;
— for Si ≤ 0,25 %, increase the value of the CEV by 0,01.
