Abstract

The quality of steel rods used in structural applications has beensubjected to continuous scrutiny by researchers in Nigeria. In thisdata article, the experimental data on the chemical and mechan-ical properties of steel rods from collapsed building sites and localsteel plants have been reported. The chemical composition con-sisting of carbon, manganese, silicon, sulphur, phosphorus amongother elements were recorded using an optical emission spectro-meter. Some of the main elements were used to evaluate thecarbon equivalent value and the results are reported in this article.The yield strength, ultimate tensile strength and percentageelongation were also presented as obtained from the universaltesting machine. The hardness values of the steel rod samples werealso presented.
