Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference ashcac (Civil/Environmental) (OP) 26 Oct 16 10:14 Can anyone give me the exact ASTM Reference where the mechanical properties of a structural steel is reflected? I'm just new in structural engineer and would appreciate if you could help me out. Thanks RE: Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference ajh1 (Structural) 26 Oct 16 11:11 This is not a singular reference. There are about 30 ASTM plate steel standards, probably that many more for pressure vessel steel, sheet steel has around 20, and coated sheet steel again more. Within those some have as many as 30 grades each with their own properties. You're going to have to be a lot more specific in your needs.

RE: Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference wannabeSE (Civil/Environmental) 27 Oct 16 02:07 The link is to a Modern Steel article that includes the ASTM standard for common structural steel Are You Properly Specifying Materials RE: Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference EdStainless (Materials) 27 Oct 16 02:19 There are also handbooks and articles from trade associations that will summarize the more common structural steel specs. You might also look for guides published by major producers of structural steel. = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = P.E.

I just went to Industrial Metal Supply to buy some square tube (smaller than HSS). The guy bragged about how it met ASTM A (Whatever) and was 72 ksi steel. But he didn't know that this spec is a dimensional spec that allows steel down to 33 ksi and he had no purchase order to prove what he bought. ASTM's are tricky! RE: Steel Mechanical Properties - ASTM Reference weldstan (Materials) 31 Oct 16 16:08 The ASTM specification for each structural steel provides this information. You can also review AWS D1.1 and find numerous structural steel specifications used and the strength thereof.
