Cut Reference Time With ASTM Steel Sheet Compilations

Steel sheet is a heavily-used commodity. When fabricating this material for warehouse storage systems, file cabinets, and a multitude of industrial and commercial products found in every niche of the world, engineers often reference ASTM standards.

To cut reference time, the most commonly-used ASTM standards for flat-rolled steel are now available in two documents:

• A 1011, Specification for Steel, Sheet and Strip, Hot-Rolled, Carbon, Structural, High-Strength Low Alloy, and High-Strength Low-Alloy with Improved Formability; and

• A 1008, Specification for Steel, Sheet, Cold-Rolled, Carbon, and Structural, High-Strength, Low-Alloy, and High-Strength, Low-Alloy with Improved Formability.

The new standards were compiled by Subcommittee A01.19 on Steel Sheet and Strip, led by John Mahaney, Jr., metallurgical service engineer, LTV Steel, Akron, Ohio. They offer convenient references for steel sheet and parts manufacturers, service centers, and stampers, he said.

For further technical information, contact John Mahaney, Jr., LTV Steel, 737 Hampton Ridge Dr., Akron, OH 44313-5082 (330/835-4215; fax: 330/867-3813). Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel, and Related Alloys meets November 13-16 in Orlando, Fla. For meeting or membership details, contact Director George Luciw, ASTM (610/832-9710). //
