Help me please

Help me please

Hi I am new here and have a question I am hoping one of you guys or girls can help me with. Ok, I work for a supply company and have a customer (BP) who was requesting the following:

Beam, W12 x 26 A131 DH36 / A-633 Gr C (ABS Mill Certified)

well of course they do not make beam out of that material. Now my task is to find a viable subsitute material. Can any of you help me by suggesting a substitute material for A131 DH36 / A-633 Gr C, that they actually make beam out of? Thank you

RE: Help me please

Tell BP that the item is not available.

RE: Help me please

Yes they are aware that it is not available. My question is what type of material would be a good substitute to replace what they were requesting? Something that is made into beams.

"Grades C and D provide a minimum yield point of 50ksi [345MPa] in thicknesses up to 2.50 in. [65mm], inclusive and 46ksi [315MPa] in thickness over 2.50 in. to 4.0 in. [65mm to 100mm], inclusive. "

That website seems to suggest that A992 Grade 50 might be what you're looking for.
Why not call and discuss it with them.
