SSAB's EPD for piles, structural hollow sections, precision tubes, line pipes and steel sections are now published in the EPD-Norway, Norwegian EPD program for products (EPD = Environmental Product Declaration). An EPD gives information about a product’s environmental issues and environmental impacts.
The 9th Steel Pile Day has been established as an event in which professionals in the field in Finland gather annually. On 21 January 2016, there were again over 300 participants, a third of which were design engineers, a third were contractors and the rest were e.g. authorities and students.
SSAB ‘s RDc casing tubes are intended for various casing tube applications installed by drilling and where a reliable and, above all, cost-effective splicing technique is required. Use of a threaded splice can save up to 90% of time at the installation stage compared to a traditional welded splice. Each splice takes around just 1-2 minutes.
Calculation of cross section properties and bending resistances of the pile walls is easy with SSAB’s new PileWallCalc design tool. The program calculates the bending resistances and normal force resistances of RD pile wall, Combi wall and Zig-Zag Combi wall.
