JK-Stainless Steel Joint Speciallly For "U" Girders

Stainless steel is a revolutionary material that has produced countless advances in all manner of industries. But perhaps no arena has been more transformed by the many benefits of stainless steel than architecture and engineering.

The most salient feature of stainless steel is rustproof, commonly used as landscape material for interior and exterior structural members that use stainless steel in building designs. Structural applications of stainless steel in infrastructure include load-bearing components in pedestrian, road and railway bridges (girders, arches, tension rods etc) and tunnels (support framing for lining, maintenance walkways, lighting and signage supports). Stainless steel is also widely used for street furniture (barriers, handrails) and for the entrance structures to underground stations.

The advantages of using steel as a material for the u girder joints are described below.

  • High strength to weight ratio – The high strength to weight ratio of steel minimizes substructures costs, which is particularly beneficial in poor ground conditions. Minimum self-weight is also an important factor in transporting and handling components.
  • Material with high quality – Steel is a high-quality material, which is readily available in different certified grades, shapes and sizes. Prefabrication in controlled shop conditions has benefits in terms of quality. Trial assembly can be done at the fabrication shops to avoid fit-up problems on site.
  • Versatility – Steelwork can be constructed by a wide range of methods and sequences. . Installation may be by cranes, launching, slide-in techniques or transporters. Steel provides the erection contractor flexibility in terms of erection sequence and construction programme. Girders can be erected either singly or in pairs, depending on plant constraints.
  • Modification, demolition and repair – Steel bridges are adaptable and can readily be altered for a change in use. They can be widened to accommodate extra lanes of traffic and strengthened to carry heavier traffic loads.
