Steel Components

Steel is a metal alloy that consists of iron and carbon. The level of carbon in steel determines its properties, such as hardness and ductility, which allow it to be used for a variety of purposes.

The most important components of steel are iron (Fe) and carbon (C). Other elements may include silicon (Si), manganese (Mn), sulfur (S), and phosphorus (P). These elements make up a very small amount of the total weight of steel, but they alter their properties because they each have different atomic structures. The other components in steel are all considered impurities that change the properties of steel to varying degrees.

Iron is by far the most abundant element in steel alloy, accounting for greater than 95% of the metal alloy by weight. The purest iron is virtually solid and very soft; however, it has high specific gravity and melts at almost 2700 degrees Fahrenheit (1500 degrees Celsius).

Iron can be combined with other elements to generate metallic alloys that are much harder and stronger than iron. One of the most common alloys is carbon steel, which consists of about 0.2% or less carbon and 98.8% or more iron.

Carbon steel is so named because it contains from 0.1 to 2 percent by weight of carbon, depending upon use. Carbon steel has a lower melting point than pure iron. Carbon steel is strong, hard, malleable, and ductile.

Build Stronger Steel Buildings with Steelcore Built in Indianapolis, IN

Carbon steel has become a very important component of any building structure. It is one of the main materials used to construct tall buildings. It allows steel high-rise structures to be created at a competitive cost and with more weight-bearing strength than traditional reinforced concrete designs.

Steelcore's technology ensures your building will stand strong and tall and provide optimum support for whatever you want to place on it. We can design and provide any steel component that you need for your building.

With our structural steel, you can create an incredibly strong, stable building that will last for years to come.

They come with many advantages, including:

  • Thinner cross-sections give more usable floor space.
  • Lower weight reduces the steel frame's overall size and the forces it must withstand.
  • Stronger than concrete in compression, but less dense so you can build taller structures that incorporate a higher percentage of window glass.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I finance my project?

How long will my project take to complete?

Construction length can vary greatly depending upon your specific circumstances. We will talk through all of the project components and variables in order to establish a time frame and an overall game plan that works for everyone.

What potential location/site/land issues should I know about?

We suggest knowing the answers to the following questions in regards to a potential location for your next project:

Is there a clear title to the site?

Has proper zoning been approved?

Have surveys been taken?

Have watershed and drainage requirements been checked?

What building code restrictions govern the site?

Are there easements on the site?

Will they interfere with the use of the property?

Is the site big enough for future expansion and parking?

Will there be easy access to the building after the area develops?

What are the setback requirements of the lot?

What site preparation work is needed? (such as soil testing, clearing, grading, demolition, fill/dirt removal, etc.)

What traffic facilities are needed? (such as driveways, pedestrian walkways, traffic signs/signals, parking/handicapped parking, separate customer parking, etc.)

What will my project cost?

There is no way to accurately answer this question without considering many variables of a project. These variables include the use of the building, location, overall appearance of the exterior and interior, and compliance with all zoning, covenants, local codes, and regulations. We will meet with you in order to gather information about your needs and discuss all the details and variables that truly affect your specific project. Building costs can be provided after that initial meeting. We believe in being honest and upfront with you from the very beginning. We want you to have a clear understanding of the overall construction process and how we can best benefit you and meet your needs.
