Steel plates have a wide range of uses and purposes. Because steel is such a robust and strong material, it is manufactured for major engineering, structural and construction projects in marine and military applications. A steel plate is a broad term for a piece of steel in the form of a plate. However, other materials such as concrete or other metals can be added to make the steel plates stronger, lighter or more corrosion resistant. Different thicknesses of steel plates are required for different purposes, for example in military uses the steel needs to be quite thick to provide protection against ammunition and a pressure vessel needs the plates to be very thin. Steel plates are commonly used in the marine industry for building ships and barges, also in oil rigs and other offshore equipment.
