strength, toughness, ductility, weldability, durability

__________ is the most common property that the designer will need as it is the basis used for most of the rules given in design codes

yield strength

the ability to resist brittle fracture are dependent on a number of factors that should be considered at the specification stage

toughness

a measure of the degree to which a material can strain or elongate between the onset of yield and eventual fracture under tensile loading

ductility

defined as the ratio of strength of the member to its maximum anticipated stress

factor of safety

a code where it reflects historically successful building practices and communicate to practicing professionals those level of safety considered acceptable by society

building codes

It provides essential insight into accepted design and construction practice in steel

specification

________permanent loads that includes the weight of structure , enclosing walls, mechanical equipment, interior finishes , etc.. _________ identified by building codes as lives or transient loads appropriate for the proposed occupancy.

dead load, live load

Also known as the Elastic Design Method wherein the working loads are estimated

WSD or allowable stress design
