Original Abstract

The paper is generally focused on the problems of the yield strength and ultimate strength of structural steels. The attention is mainly paid to the determination of the characteristic (respectively nominal) and design values of steel strengths, especially from the viewpoint of the rules given in European Standards (EN) and from this arising problems of the failure probability and reliability of steel structures. The paper deals with the actual yield strength obtained from the material tests and its actual characteristic and design values determined based on the tests versus nominal and design values considered according to EN rules. The statistical differences between actual and standard values are shown in this paper.
