Several of the most important properties include:  1. Yield strength. When an external load is applied, the structure must deform elastically, that is, without permanent deformation, so that when the load is removed, the structure returns to its initialshape. Usually the maximum design load is limited to a safety factor of between 0.5 and0.8  percent of the yield strength.  2. Ductility. Ductility is a quantifiable property, normally determined by the amount of deformation prior to failure in a tensile test. f the yield strength is inadvertently exceeded, the ability of the steel to plastically deform without brea!ing is an important to avoid catastrophic failure . While the structure may no longer be functional, more serious damage, and possible loss of life, is generally avoided.  3. Toughness.  Under conditions of high impact loading and low temperatures, cracs !ay for! and propagate leading to brittle failure   little to no ductility#, an event to be avoided if at all possible.  . #eldability.  $or some structures, mechanical %oining by bolts or rivets is adequate. &owever, many structures are assembled by welding and this requires that permanent damage is not incurred during the process. Welding is a form of heat treatment, and alloying and high cooling rates e.g. by using thic! sections which allow rapid heat extraction# are generally deleterious.'lastic modulus and (oisson)s ratio are also inherent properties of structural steel and cannot be manipulated.
