    Abstract

    Data from more than 300 tension tests made at several laboratories on 5083-0 sheet and plate at cryogenic temperatures have been evaluated. Based on these data, minimum, allowable design stresses have been developed for temperatures as low as -320°F for inclusion in Section VIII, Division 1 of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.
