LARGE STEEL STRUCTURE

EVALUATION OF DEGRADATION OF LARGE STEEL STRUCTURE

Degradation of large steel structures used in aerospace, shipping and civil engineering can have catastrophic consequences. Large steel structures are prone to fatigue cumulative damage, especially under the action of natural disasters will exacerbate fatigue damage, resulting in cracking failure caused by fracture collapse. Coercimetry non-destructive evaluation is very sensitive to microstructure changes and residual stress can be used to measure safety state and remaining life of steel structures assessment and grading.

Applications:

● Lifting machinery, transmission towers, recreational facilities, steel bridges, large ships, offshore platforms.

Equipment:

● Magnetic structurescope (coercimeter) MC-04H-2

Coercive force parameters of gantry crane beam elements (main girder and support legs) were measured. The dangerous area of the crane was quickly identified, and fatigue degradation degree and the remaining life of the crane were quantitatively evaluated.

 

 

Assessment of the safety and residual life of the lifting machinery steel structure by means of the ISO 4301 international standard using the hysteresis characteristic non-destructive evaluation technique.
