A large variety of modern high strength, high toughness steels with good weldability have been put on the market by the European steel industry. Many potential users are still reluctant to exploit the tremendous improvements of steel properties for their advantage. The promotion of high performance steels needs to go along with the development of rules and codes for design and fabrication.

The present report presents the results of the review of 47 ECSC research projects having made essential contributions to provide the scientific basis on which such rules can be established for steels with minimum yield strength values up to about 900 MPa. .
