Abstract: This paper is concerned with the material characteristics of various commercial high strength structural steels (yield strengths between 460 and 700 N/mm2) at elevated temperatures. These steels vary in chemical composition and production route but have similar tensile properties at ambient temperature. Preliminary data of the following: proportional limit (fp,θ), elastic modulus (Ea,θ), effective yield strength (fy,θ) based on the total strain level at 2% (in accordance with the Eurocode approach) obtained from isothermal tests are presented as reduction factors and compared with literature and the Eurocode (EN 1993-1-2). The consequences for material selection and design are also discussed.
