Prevalent applications of steel structures in Vietnam

08-04-2022

Structural steel has become an explosive trend for a wide range of industries, typically construction, shipbuilding, infrastructure, and energy. Besides advantages such as good-bearing capacity, high durability, and affordable price, steel structure projects are also environmentally friendly and energy-saving. Which steel structures are currently being produced and commonly used in Vietnam? Follow the article below with BMB Steel.

1. What is a steel structure?

A steel structure is a structure made up of interconnected steel structures, which is the primary bearing part of construction works. Thanks to its high bearing capacity, cost saving, and solidity, this type of building are currently being widely applied to almost all types of construction such as industrial factories, buildings, infrastructure, airport, etc.

2. Advantages of steel structure

The steel structure is currently the choice of businesses for projects because of the following outstanding advantages:

  • Good bearing capacity.
  • Low construction cost.
  • Fast build time.
  • Flexible adjustment, easy to move and install, scale up.
  • Durable

3.1. Steel structure construction of the industrial building

Because of its flexibility in adjustment, assembly, and dismantling, in addition to its high durability and bearing capacity, significant cost savings during construction and repair costs, steel structures are the ideal choice for building constructions such as factories, warehouses, commercial centers, factories, industrial parks, etc.

3.2. Steel structure construction of buildings

In high-rise buildings, city towers with many floors, especially buildings from 18m-100m high to 20-30 floors, the internal force in the column must be tremendous and require a suitable rigidity. Most businesses use steel structures because this is an appropriate bearing-capacity method on the market. In addition, this type of structure also has good fire resistance and quick construction time, so this is considered the most optimal measure.

3.3. Steel structures in the construction of tall towers

Thanks to its flexibility, ease of transportation, erection, dismantling, lightweight structure, and bringing modernity, and high aesthetics, steel structure is also widely used in tall towers such as advertising panels, outdoor advertising, telecommunication towers, power poles, radio antenna masts, oil drilling towers, etc.

3.5. Steel structure supporting equipment

For underground constructions, steel structure acts as a bracing system to support. For large-scale and high-rise buildings, steel plays the role of a truss system to support construction. Specifically, a steel structure is used to install the oil and gas rig support system.

3.6. Steel structure in traffic infrastructure projects

Besides the advantages mentioned above, steel structures are also elastic, solid, and anti-corrosion malleable. Hence, businesses also use them in the production of traffic infrastructure works such as railway tracks, steel bridges, trains, stations, etc.

3.7. Steel structure for the shipbuilding industry

According to drawings, steel structures can withstand high external pressures and are easy to fabricate. Besides, they do not rust and have a quick construction time. Thus, most watercraft such as boats, steel nets, and ladders manufacture with steel structures.

3.8. Structural manufacturing by the steel structure

Oil storage tanks, blast furnace equipment or petrochemical plants, and industrial tanks are also manufactured with steel structures. This is the best choice because the steel structure is waterproof and sealed under adverse temperature and pressure conditions
