Abstract This report is one of a series concerning fire resistance of offshore structures. Temperature dependent material properties for the various types of steel that are commonly found in offshore installations are examined; these include structural steels and "boiler" steels used for pressure vessels and some piping. The effects of the steel making process and the chemical composition of the steels are considered and an outline of the use of steel on offshore structures is presented. The study shows that there is limited test data at elevated temperatures for steels which are not the common structural steels, and data which are available should be used with caution. Glossary.
