    Strength and Sustainability: Exploring the Applications of Steel Structures in Modern Construction
    Author(s): Robert Paul*

    Steel structures are widely used in construction due to their high strength, durability, and versatility. They are typically made from a combination of steel beams, columns, trusses, and plates that are welded or bolted together to form a structural frame. Steel structures are commonly used in high-rise buildings, bridges, stadiums, airports, and other large-scale projects. One of the main advantages of steel structures is their strengthto- weight ratio, which allows for the creation of large, open spaces without the need for supporting columns or walls. This makes them ideal for large buildings or structures with long spans. Another advantage of steel structures is their durability. Steel is resistant to fire, corrosion, and pests, making it a low-maintenance option for long-term use. It also has a high resistance to seismic forces, making it a good choice for are.. Read More»
