The same is also true of the concrete slab in a composite girder bridge, but the steel orthotropic deck is considerably lighter, and therefore allows longer span bridges to be more efficiently designed.
The stiffening elements can serve several functions simultaneously. They enhance the bending resistance of the plate to allow it to carry local wheel loads and distribute those loads to main girders. They also increase the total crosssectional area of steel in the plate, which can increase its contribution to the overall bending capacity of the deck (i.e. the deck plate acts as a top flange in a box or I beam girder). Finally, the stiffeners increase the resistance of the plate to buckling.
]]>Expanded metal is used in grates and in outdoor furniture (e.g. benches) or fencing. It is often used for guarding to prevent contact with hot surfaces or machinery.
Expanded metal is often used for architectural details.

Both Galvanized pipe and black pipe are made from steel, but the coating applied to them after forging differs. Galvanized pipe is coated with a layer of zinc to minimize corrosion, while black pipe has a black oxide coating that forms after it is forged.
With a lifespan of 40 years, galvanized pipe is primarily used for nonresidential water lines and outdoor fixtures that require the strength of steel, such as railings and fence posts. Black pipe is used to move natural gas and air throughout buildings.
Water will corrode steel over time, so neither galvanized nor black pipe are used for residential waterlines. Galvanized pipes are not recommended for gas lines, as the zinc coating reacts with the gas and flakes off, eventually causing blockages.
Galvanized pipes rust from the inside out, so you may have a problem before any noticeable symptoms appear on your pipes. Both types of pipe may corrode and rust at the join site, even if they are joined to noncorroding pipes such as copper or PVC.

Sheet metal is available in flat pieces or as a coiled strip. The coils are formed by running a continuous sheet of metal through a roll slitter.
The thickness of the sheet metal is called its gauge. The gauge of sheet metal ranges from 30 gauge to about 8 gauge. The larger the gauge number, the thinner the metal.
Sheet metal has applications in car bodies, airplane wings, medical tables, roofs for buildings and many other things. Sheet metal of iron and other materials with high magnetic permeability, also known as laminated steel cores, has applications in transformers and electric machines. Historically, an important use of sheet metal was in plate armor worn by cavalry, and sheet metal continues to have many decorative uses, including in horse tack.
]]>Framing for floor penetrations are either done with steel channel or steel angle. This is mainly because they are less expansive and easy to handle. Another common application of steel channels is for supports of hanging loads such as mechanical units or fans hanging from roofing or floor framing.
If the span is 3 to 5 feet long, angle iron will work. For longer spans from 6 to 14 feet long +/, steel channel will work best. But it all depends on the load. If the load is too heavy even at 3 ft span, steel channel may be the best option. Sometimes for heavier load it may be required to double up the steel channels or use wide flange with higher yield strength to be able to support the load.

An angle iron is made in such a way that there are holes at regular intervals along the length of the metal. Depending on which point of the metal the screws are placed, different tension supports are established.
These prefabricated metal brackets range in prices, depending on their length and size. Larger angle irons can support more weight than smaller ones. Home use angle irons can be purchased at local hardware stores. A variety of lengths are available depending on the home project and area of the home you will use it for.
Sometimes, pre packaged bed frames and shelving units will have an angle iron or Lbracket included in the box. In home furniture, most of the time, if you find two wood pieces joined together at an angle, you will notice an angle iron at the corner where the two sections meet.
When purchasing an angle iron, you will need at least two pieces so these are commonly sold in packs of two. Make sure you include the bolts nuts or screws that will be used to bolt it into place. Don’t worry about the color of the metal. It usually comes in stainless steel, grey, black and sometimes even white. If it doesn’t match your room decors and it will be exposed, you may always opt to paint over it to make it blend in with the wall. You must also determine the weight that the steel will support. If you are using it to install shelving, determine what items you will place on the shelves. Books will require good support since these can get very heavy. Lighter items such as picture frames and dolls will require less support. If the length of the shelf will be unusually long, place supports in the mid length as well.
Angle irons are a necessary and convenient construction tool. It looks simple but it bears a lot of weight.
