    1. Rationale

    Rationale #1 - The Subommittee has been asked by a member to add Grade 1006 to Table 2. Rationale #2 - Subcommittee A01.09 and Committee A01 approved a change to another shaped tubing specificatio, A500, to disallow the seam weld to be located in the corner radius, unless specified by the customer. Rationale #3 - The Referenced chemical analysis method suggested by A01 is A751, not E1806. Rationale #4 - The preferred title for Table S5.1 based on Standard Guide A994, Paragraph 6.9, should be changed from Hardness Limits and Tensile Properties for Round Tubing to Mechanical Properties for Round Tubing.
