Z Sections - AZ Sheet Piles



The essential characteristics of the Z sheet pile are the continuous form of the web and the specific location of the interlock symmetrically on both sides of the neutral axis. Both aspects have a positive influence on the section modulus.

The AZ series, a combination of a section with extraordinary characteristics and the proven qualities of the Larssen interlock, has the following advantages:

- an extremely competitive section modulus-to-mass ratio.

- increased inertia, reducing deflection and allowing high-yield steels to be used for the most economical solution.

- large width resulting in good installation performance.

- good corrosion resistance, the steel being thickest at the critical corrosion points.

STEEL GRADES

The standards we normally refer to regarding steel grades for hot-rolled sheet piles is EN 10248 Part 1. The mechanical properties and chemical composition are shown in the table below.

Materials to other specifications, such as special steels, steel with an improved corrosion resistance, or copper addition in accordance with EN 10248 Part 1 Chapter 10.4 can be supplied on request.

Grade A 690 with higher yield strength upon request.

AMLoCor - New corrosion resistant steel grade for marine applications
 
AMLoCor, ArcelorMittal’s new ‘low corrosion’ steel grade will undoubtedly revolutionize the design of port structures. One concern of designers and port authorities is the durability of marine structures like quay walls, breakwaters, jetties.

The main advantage of AMLoCor is a significant reduction of the corrosion rates in the ‘Low water zone’ and in the ‘Permanent immersion zone’, especially since in most cases the maximum bending moments, and consequently the steel stresses, are in the permanent immersion zone.
