Mechanical properties standard for steel, carbon and alloyed.

Mechanical properties standard for steel, carbon and alloyed.

(OP)
Hello,

anybody knows the standard/s where I can find the mechanical properties of steels like 1045, or 4140, 4340... in the state of normalized, and quenching and tempering condition?
I have been searching in so many ASTM steel standards, but haven't found it.

Any clue?

Thanks in advance...

Hi metengr, thanks for your response.

I need the mechanical properties written in ASTM, to put it in a document for my company, that has to be in accordance with the ASTM standards.

I have been searching in a lot of steel ASTM standards but I haven't been lucky.

It should be more easy to find!...

Thanks again...

RE: Mechanical properties standard for steel, carbon and alloyed.

As a starting point you can use matweb to search for ASTM listed steels. Also, you need to have access to ASTM specifications and go to the section most applicable to steel end products (plate, rod/bar forgings).

Hi!

I am looking for an ASTM standard which includes the mechanical props of "steel bars, carbon (non-alloyed), and hot-rolled (not cold-drawn)"... specifically the mechanical props of 1045 steel.

I've found the "A311: Stress-relieved steel bars subject to mechanical property requirements, cold-drawn carbon", which includes the mech props of cold-drawn steel bars, but not the hot-rolled...and it seems that hot-rolled standard doesn't exists. Does anybody knows why? ponder

Already, I've found the "A576:Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Carbon, Hot-Wrought, Special Quality" which covers the heat chemical, and uses the grade designation like 1020,1040,1080...but in the "A675: Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Carbon, Hot-Wrought, Special Quality, Mechanical Properties" (which is suposed to talk about the same steels), it uses other grade designation like 45, 60,80...I don't understand why.

thank you for your time ... winky smile

Look first at ASTM A 29.
