pipes are used in construction, transportation, and manufacturing. different materials, design features, and manufacturing methods for steel pipes have evolved and vary depending on the application.
structural uses are generally associated with buildings and construction sites where the construction material is commonly referred to as steel pipes. steel pipes are used to provide additional strength and stability to especially high-rise buildings or structures. two types of steel pipes used in structures are end-bearing piles and friction piles, both of which serve the purpose of transmitting the load of the structure. in these applications, steel pipes are driven deep into the ground before the foundation is laid, providing excellent support for the building, especially when the ground is unsafe. another structural application of steel pipes is as scaffolding columns that allow construction workers to access any out-of-reach areas of the building. they are created by connecting steel pipes together like a cage surrounding the building.
used in manufacturing
steel pipes are used for a variety of purposes in the manufacturing sector. railings are one of the most common uses for ensuring safety on stairs and balconies or on streets for cyclists and pedestrians. steel pipes can also be used as security barriers to isolate an area from traffic to protect people, buildings, or infrastructure. additionally, steel pipes are an option for the exterior development of construction sites. many commercial bicycle racks are formed by bending steel tubing. steel's high toughness and strength make it safe from thieves.
use for transportation
the most common application of steel pipes is product transportation because the properties of the raw material are well-suited for long-term installations. as we mentioned earlier, different applications require different properties, for low-pressure applications, steel pipe is not expected to have very high strength as it is not exposed to significant loads. more specialized applications aimed at the oil and gas industry may require more stringent specifications due to the hazardous nature of the product and the potential for increased pressure. these requirements lead to higher costs and quality control becomes more important.
