Default Challenges, TDMs and Feats for ST (Strength)?

Greetings, all!

Some game systems have a page listing sample feats that would require having this much strength to achieve. Bending bars, turning gears, ripping chains, forcing open unpowered doors etc. I know there are some scattered around, but I'm interested in at least consolidating some of them and perhaps finding ways to benchmark some more. E.g. I know that spaceship doors tend to do (SM) dice of damage, and can back-calculate their ST from that, and there's a (somewhat overcomplicated) way of calculating the roll modifier for breaking handcuffs with brute strength, but surely I'm missing a lot more of them than I have.

So, what are good places to look for more such examples, or for ways of easily benchmarking them on the fly?

Thanks in advance!

Dungeon Fantasy 2, Page 8 has the Muscling Through section with rules for Bashing, Forcing, Bending, Lifting, and Hiii-yah!'ing your way past doors, chests, bars, portcullises, etc.

I am now wondering how many grains of salt I should add to anything coming from DF into a less-blatantly-cinematic game.

Also, is it me, or is focusing on ST for feats like that less viable in GURPS than in other systems (being either very expensive bang-for-buck)?
