SS400 Structural Steel - An Overview
JIS G 3101 SS400 is one of the most commonly used hot rolled general structural steel. Supplied as plates, sheets, flats, bars, sections etc. They are cheap, excelling in weldability & machinability.
SS400 Mechanical PropertiesDensity (kg/m3) 7860 Young’s Modulus (GPa) 190-210 Tensile Strength (MPa) 400 – 510 MPa Yield Strength (MPa) 205-245 MPa Poisson's ratio 0.26
SS400 HardnessBrinell Hardness (HB) 160
DIN Equivalents for JIS SS400
ASTM Equivalents for JIS SS400
