AD.2007-03.2.5 Updated and Additional Standard Steel Grades in Eurocode 3

The standard steel grades are referenced in the Eurocode 3 have been provided as standard steel grades in order that the appropriate buckling curves can be selected.

The steel grade can be specified using the parameter SGR which accept values of 0 to 5. This translates to the following:
Grade SGR
S 235 0 (default)
S 275 1
S 355 2
S 450 3
S 460 4
Note: If a user-defined yield stress PY is specified, the buckling curve will still be determined from the SGR setting (i.e., if not specified, it will be based on the default SGR parameter). Therefore, if setting a user PY, this should be preceded in the file by the appropriate steel grade command.
