Hot finished steel structural hollow sections - Part 3: Technical delivery conditions for high strength and weather resistant steels

This part of this European Standard specifies technical delivery conditions for hot-finished seamless, electric welded and submerged arc welded steel structural hollow sections for mechanical engineering purposes 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 properties to those obtained in the hot formed product.
NOTE 1   The requirements for tolerances, dimensions and sectional properties are specified in EN 10210-2.
NOTE 2   The attention of users is drawn to the fact that whilst cold formed grades in EN 10219-3 can have equivalent mechanical properties to hot-finished grades in EN 10210-3 the sectional properties of square and rectangular hollow sections in EN 10210-2 and EN 10219-2 are not equivalent.
NOTE 3   A range of material grades is specified in this document 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 generally comparable with those in EN 10025-2, EN 10025-3, EN 10025-4, EN 10025-5 and EN 10025-6.
NOTE 4   The requirements for seamless and welded steel structural hollow sections for use in offshore structures are covered in EN 10225.
NOTE 5    Spiral welded hollow sections are to be used with caution in construction of dynamic behaviour (fatigue stress) where up to now, there is insufficient knowledge of their performance.

Warmgefertigte Hohlprofile für den Stahlbau - Teil 3: Technische Lieferbedingungen für Anwendungen im Maschinenbau

Dieser Teil der Europäischen Norm legt die technischen Lieferbedingungen für warmgefertigte nahtlose, elektrisch und unterpulvergeschweißte Hohlprofile für Anwendungen im Maschinenbau mit runder, quadratischer, rechteckiger oder elliptischer Form fest.
Sie gilt für warmgefertigte Hohlprofile mit oder ohne nachfolgende Wärmebehandlung sowie für kaltgeformte Hohlprofile mit einer anschließenden Wärmebehandlung oberhalb von 580 °C um gleichwertige mechanische Eigenschaften wie bei den warmgeformten Erzeugnissen zu erzielen.
ANMERKUNG 1   Die Anforderungen an die Grenzabmaße, Maße und statische Werte sind in EN 10210-2 festgelegt.
ANMERKUNG 2   Der Anwender wird darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass die kaltgeformten Hohlprofile nach EN 10219-3 zwar vergleichbare mechanische Eigenschaften zu den warmgefertigten Hohlprofilen nach EN 10210-3 aufweisen können, dass aber die Maße und statischen Werte von quadratischen und rechteckigen Hohlprofilen nach EN 10210-2 und EN 10219-2 nicht vergleichbar sind.
ANMERKUNG 3   Eine Anzahl von Stahlsorten ist in dieser Norm festgelegt und der Anwender sollte die geeignetste Sorte für die beabsichtigte Verwendung aussuchen. Die Sorten und die mechanischen Eigenschaften der fertigen Hohlprofile sind im Allgemeinen vergleichbar mit den Sorten die in EN 10025-2, EN 10025-3, EN 10025-4, EN 10025-5 und EN 10025-6 aufgeführt sind.  
ANMERKUNG 4   Nahtlose und geschweißte Hohlprofile für Offshore-Konstruktionen werden in der Europäischen Norm EN 10225 behandelt.
ANMERKUNG 5   Spiralnahtgeschweißte Hohlprofile sind mit Vorsicht bei dynamischer Beanspruchung (Ermüdungsbelastung) der Konstruktionen zu verwenden, da es bis heute nur unzureichende Kenntnisse bezüglich des Verhaltens gibt.

La présente partie de cette Norme européenne spécifie les conditions techniques de livraison pour les profils creux de construction finis à chaud en aciers sans soudure, soudés électriquement et soudés à l’arc immergé pour des applications de construction mécanique de forme circulaire, carrée, rectangulaire ou elliptique.
Elle s’applique aux profils creux formés à chaud, avec ou sans traitement thermique ultérieur, ou formés à froid avec traitement thermique ultérieur supérieur à 580 °C afin d’obtenir des caractéristiques mécaniques équivalentes à celles des produits formés à chaud.
NOTE 1   Les exigences pour les tolérances, dimensions et caractéristiques de section sont spécifiées dans l’EN 10210-2.
NOTE 2   L’attention des utilisateurs est attirée sur le fait que, même si les nuances formées à froid de l’EN 10219-3 peuvent avoir des caractéristiques mécaniques équivalentes aux nuances finies à chaud de l’EN 10210-3, les caractéristiques de section des profils creux carrés et rectangulaires de l’EN 10210-2 et de l’EN 10219-2 ne sont pas équivalentes.
NOTE 3   Une gamme de nuances de matériau est spécifiée dans le présent document, et l’utilisateur doit sélectionner la nuance la plus appropriée à l’utilisation et aux conditions de service prévues. Les nuances et caractéristiques mécaniques des profils creux finis sont généralement comparables à celles de l’EN 10025-2, l’EN 10025-3, l’EN 10025-4, l’EN 10025-5 et l’EN 10025-6.
NOTE 4   Les exigences pour les profils creux de construction en aciers sans soudure et soudés destinés aux structures marines sont couvertes par l’EN 10225.
NOTE 5   Les profils creux soudés en spirale doivent être utilisés avec prudence dans la construction quand le comportement dynamique (contrainte en fatigue) est important car  jusqu'à présent, les connaissances sur leurs performances sont insuffisantes.

1 Scope

This document specifies technical delivery conditions for high strength and weather resistant 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 properties to those

obtained in the hot formed product.

NOTE 1 The requirements for tolerances, dimensions and sectional properties are specified in EN 10210-2.

NOTE 2 The attention of users is drawn to the fact that whilst cold formed grades in EN 10219-3 can have

equivalent mechanical properties to hot-finished grades in this document the sectional properties of square and

rectangular hollow sections in EN 10210-2 and EN 10219-2 are not equivalent.

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

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

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

NOTE 4 The requirements for seamless and welded steel structural hollow sections for use in offshore

structures are covered in the EN 10225 series.

NOTE 5 Spiral welded hollow sections are expected to be used with caution in applications involving dynamic

behaviour (fatigue stress) as, up to now, there is insufficient data regarding their performance.

7 Requirements
7.1 Chemical composition

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

shall comply with the requirements given in Tables C.1, D.1 or E.1.

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

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

In addition to the cast analysis the following option can be specified by the purchaser at the time of

enquiry and order:

Option 3.3 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 When products are supplied with a control on Si e.g. for hot-dip zinc-coating there could be a

need, for certain grades and thicknesses, to increase the content of other elements such as C and Mn, to

achieve the required mechanical properties. In such cases, the maximum carbon equivalent values of

Table C.2 to Table E.2 may 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.
