Stainless Steel for Structural Applications

Designer Handbook

Including Directory of Stainless Steel Structural Producers

Stainless steel can be fabricated by methods similar to those used by carbon steel. However, other considerations must be taken into account because of the difference in material properties such as yield strength and rate of work hardening. This Designer Handbook has several suggestions on techniques for cutting, bending, forming, and finishing the austenitic and ferritic stainless steels.
