Literature survey, Report TT.0874, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In the past ten years a new kind of steel, with a high yield strentgh, has been developped. These materials have already been used in crane-construction.
Rules for designing with these materials are not yet given by standards.
In this report an attempt is made to find out whether sufficient data is available in the literature to justify the use of these materials. This is done by trying to find data about acceptable stresses and metallurgical aspects of the use of steels with a high yield strentgh.
In this report the new design-method with Fracture Mechanics is investigated also.
