Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures - Part 1-10: Material toughness and through-thickness properties (+ AC:2009)
91.010.30 Technical aspects 91.080.13 Steel structures
This prEN contains design rules for selecting and specifying steel materials that are resistant to failure by brittle fracture and lamellar tearing. Brittle fracture is characterized as failure of a structural element without significant plastic deformation. Lamellar tearing is characterized as failure of parent metal by delamination along planes of segregation in its microstructure as a result of excessive through-thickness strain.
