different, from those in EN 10020:2000, EN 10021:2006, EN 10052:1993 and EN 10266:2003.

3.1.1
hot finished

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

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

obtained in the hot formed product
3.1.2
cold forming

process where the forming to final shape of the welded hollow section is carried out at ambient

temperature

Note 1 to entry: Circular hollow sections produced from normalized strip with a normalized weld seam and

with a cold forming ratio of D/T ≥ 20 may be classified as hot-finished hollow sections.

3.1.3
normalizing rolling

rolling process in which the final deformation is carried out in a certain temperature range leading to a

material condition equivalent to that obtained after normalizing so that the specified values of the

mechanical properties are retained even after subsequent normalizing
3.1.4
thermomechanical rolling

simultaneously performed forming process and heat treatment in which the final deformation from

round to rectangular/square/elliptical hollow sections is carried out in a certain temperature range

above 580 °C leading to a material condition with certain properties which cannot be achieved or

repeated by heat treatment alone

Note 1 to entry: Thermomechanical rolling leading to the delivery condition M can include processes with an

increasing cooling rate with or without tempering including self-tempering but excluding direct quenching and

quenching and tempering.

Note 2 to entry: In some publications the word TMCP (Thermomechanical Control Process) is also used.

3.1.5
steel with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance

steel in which a certain number of alloying elements has been added in order to increase its resistance

to atmospheric corrosion, by forming an auto-protective oxide layer on the base metal under the

influence of weather conditions

Note 1 to entry: Steel with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance is often called weathering steel.

---------------------- Page: 7 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 10210-1:2016
prEN 10210-1:2016 (E)

Note 2 to entry: Additional information for the use of steel with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance is

given in prEN 10210-2:2016, Annex E.
3.1.6
quenching and tempering
process which consists of the following two steps:

— first quenching, where the steel is heated up above AC3 temperature and then rapidly cooled down

in liquids to create a process specific grain structure;

— afterwards tempering, during which the steel is heated up to a certain temperature to adjust the

desired properties and cooled down in air afterwards
3.1.7
fine grain steel

steels with fine grain structure with an equivalent index of ferritic grain size ≥ 6

Note 1 to entry: For the determination of grain sizes except for +QT steels, see EN ISO 643.

3.2 Symbols
For the purposes of this document, the symbols defined in EN 10266:2003 apply.
4 Product characteristics
4.1 Chemical composition (durability)

The chemical composition determined by the cast analysis and reported by the steel producer shall

comply to the requirements given in prEN 10210-2:2016, Tables A.1, B.1, C.1, D.1 or E.1.

4.2 Mechanical properties (yield strength, tensile strength, elongation and impact

strength)

4.2.1 Under the inspection and testing conditions as specified in prEN 10210-2:2016, Clause 8 and in

the delivery condition as specified in prEN 10210-2:2016, 6.5 the mechanical properties of the finished

hollow section shall conform to the relevant requirements of prEN 10210-2:2016, Tables A.3, B.3, B.4,

C.3, C.4, D.3, D.4 and E.3.

NOTE Any heat treatment at more than 580 °C may lead to a reduction in the mechanical properties of TMCR

sections and also hot finished sections not processed in the normalizing temperature range.

4.2.2 For impact tests, standard Charpy-V-notch test pieces in accordance with EN ISO 148-1 shall be

used. If the nominal product thickness is not sufficient for the preparation of standard test pieces, the

test shall be carried out using test pieces of width less than 10 mm, but not less than 5 mm. The

minimum average values given in prEN 10210-2:2016, Tables A.3, B.4, C.4, D.4 and E.3 shall be reduced

in direct proportion to the actual width of the test piece compared to that of the standard test piece.

Impact tests are not required for specified thicknesses ≤ 6,3 mm.

NOTE If a Charpy test is performed at a lower temperature than specified in the standard and the impact

energy values obtained meet the requirements at the higher temperature, then the material is deemed to conform

to the standard and the test need not be repeated at the higher temperature.

4.3 Weldability

The steels specified in this European Standard are weldable as given in prEN 10210-2:2016, Annexes A

to E. General requirements for welding of the products in accordance with this European Standard are

given in EN 1011-1 and EN 1011-2.

The maximum carbon equivalent value (CEV) for all grades, based on the cast analyses, given in

prEN 10210-2:2016, Tables A.2, B.2, C.2, D.2 and E.2 shall apply.

When determining the CEV, the following formula of the International Institute of Welding (IIW) shall

be used:
Mn Cr++Mo V Ni+Cu
CEV=C++ +
6 5 15

NOTE 1 When welding hollow sections, as product thickness, strength level and CEV increase, the occurrence

of cold cracking in the welded zone forms the main risk. Cold cracking is caused by a combination of the following

factors:
— high levels of diffusible hydrogen in the weld metal;
— a brittle structure in the heat affected zone;
— significant tensile stress concentrations in the welded joint.

NOTE 2 By using guidelines, specified for example in EN 1011-1, EN 1011-2 or any other relevant welding

standard, the recommended welding conditions and the various welding ranges for the steel grades can be

determined. These will vary depending on the product thickness, the applied welding energy, the design

requirements, the electrode efficiency, the welding process and the weld metal properties.

4.4 Tolerances on dimensions and shape
Tolerances of dimensions and shape shall be as specified in prEN 10210-3.
4.5 Dangerous substances

National regulations on dangerous substances may require verification and declaration on release, and

sometimes content, when construction products covered by this standard are placed on those markets.

In the absence of European harmonized test methods, verification and declaration on release/content

should be done taking into account national provisions in the place of use.

NOTE An informative database covering European and national provisions on dangerous substances is

available at the Construction web site on EUROPA accessed through:
http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/construction/cpd-ds/.

more of the characteristics.

Assessment previously performed in accordance with the provisions of this standard, may be taken into

account provided that they were made to the same or a more rigorous test method, under the same

AVCP system on the same product or products of similar design, construction and functionality, such

that the results are applicable to the product in question.

For the purposes of assessment, the manufacturer's products may be grouped into families, where it is

considered that the results for one or more characteristics from any one product within the family are

representative for that same characteristics for all products within that same family.

NOTE 1 Products may be grouped in different families for different characteristics.

NOTE 2 Reference to the assessment method standards should be made to allow the selection of a suitable

representative sample.

Products bearing regulatory marking in accordance with appropriate harmonized European

specifications may be presumed to have the performances declared in the DoP, although this does not

replace the responsibility on the hot finished structural steel hollow sections manufacturer to ensure

that hot finished structural hollow steel sections as a whole is correctly manufactured.

6.2.2 Test samples, testing and compliance criteria

The number of samples of hot finished structural steel hollow sections to be tested/assessed shall be in
