Active Standard ASTM A1083 / A1083M | Developed by Subcommittee: A01.19
Book of Standards Volume: 01.03
This specification covers cold-rolled, carbon, structural, and high-strength low-alloy, in coils and cut lengths produced by the twin-roll casting process. Cold-rolled steel sheet is available in the following designations: commercial steel, drawing steel, structural steel, and high-strength low-alloy steel. Sheet steel grades defined by this specification are suitable for welding if appropriate welding conditions are selected. For certain welding processes, if more restrictive composition limits are desirable, they shall be specified at the time of inquiry and confirmed at the time of ordering. The material shall be capable of being bent, at room temperature, in any direction through 180° flat on itself without cracking on the outside of the bent portion. Two tension tests shall be made from each heat or from each 50 tons [45,000 kg]. Yield strength shall be determined by either the 0.2 % offset method or the 0.5 % extension under load method unless otherwise specified.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.2 Cold rolled steel sheet produced by the twin-roll casting process is available in the designations as listed in 4.1.
1.3 This specification does not apply to steel strip as described in Specification A109/A109M.
1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
