  • Tubes - Structural Hollow Sections

    Steel hollow sections are the most versatile and efficient form for construction and mechanical applications.

    Many of the strongest and most impressive structures in the world today would not have been possible without hollow sections.

    • Celsius 420: Raising standards in structural steel

      Celsius 420 is our next-generation steel.

      Developed in conjunction with our customers, it delivers significant weight savings and helps to cut construction time and costs on site, as it enables you to use smaller foundations and fewer temporary structures.

    • Celsius 355 Hot finished structural hollow section

      You can rely on Celsius 355 to perform in even the most challenging conditions.

      The ultimate hot finished hollow section, its unique strength and weldability allow it to be used for all structural and mechanical applications, including columns, space frames, lattice beams and trailer frames.

    • Structural hollow sections

      Without hollow sections, many of the world’s most impressive structures just would not be possible. Why?

      Because steel hollow sections offer the ideal combination of versatility, stength and efficiency for construction and mechanical applications.

    • Complete range of customer specific precision tube

      Size range between 10 and 323 mm.  Narrow tolerance, high surface quality, customer specific tube. Yieldstrength up to S700, DP grades, Boron grades.

      Supplied via different routes to a multitude of end-users in different markets.

    Technical Response Documents

    Here you will find a collection of technical response documents that refer to recent tubular technical developments and current industry topics.


    Construction Product Regulations (CPR) - Technical Interview

    The new Construction Product Regulations (CPR) came into effect on 1 July 2013 for construction products. Our structural hollow sections – Celsius 355 and Hybox 355 – are fully compliant with the regulations. Click below to read a question and answer session with Kieran Butroid, Technical Advisory Engineer, on CPR and related changes to fabrication standard EN1090.

    Celsius 355 NH explained (Nederlandse)
    Celsius 355 NH explained (Francais)

    Celsius 355 NH hot finished hollow section is manufactured exclusively from normalised, fine grain steel. This enables you to benefit from many advantages – in both performance and processing. Celsius 355 is supplied with an inspection certificate type 3.1. This guarantees that our products comply with European Standard EN10210. Until now, however, our product certification has not fully reflected the quality and traceability inherent in Celsius 355. Click here to read the new "Celsius 355 NH explained" booklet which guides you through the changes we have made to our certification in an easy to read question and answer format.

Read our special Q&A feature with Paul to find out how Tata Steel can help when designing concrete filled hollow section columns and connections.

    Design of Welded Joints - Technical Interview (English)
    Design of Welded Joints - Technical Interview (Deutsch)
    Design of Welded Joints - Technical Interview (Francais)

    Tata Steel has produced free design aids for use with its hot-finished Celsius 355 structural hollow section. The aim is to help customers design tubular steel welded joints with ease and confidence. In our special Q&A feature, our technical expert in welded joints, Chris Morris, explains what’s on offer.

    Welded Joints Examples

    To provide further support when it comes to welded joints, we have created some examples that give typical solutions to a range of joint arrangements, including K-gap and overlap, KT-joints and joints with UB chords and hollow section bracings. Here are twelve simple examples showing full calculations and references to the Tata Steel welded joints design manual and EC3.

     


    Design data for structural hollow sections

    The essential aid for the design of steelwork

    Comprehensive section property data is provided in this ‘blue book’  as well as tables of member resistances, which are given for both Celsius® and Hybox® structural hollow sections. This enables rapid selection of steel members in compression and bending. Tables are also provided for combined bending and compression, web resistance and shear resistance. This edition provides resistances in accordance with Eurocode 3 together with the relevant UK and German National Annexes, as well as resistances to BS 5950.
