Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers cold-formed, light gage carbon steel sheet piling for use in the construction of shore walls, trench shoring, wingwalls, and bulkheads. Heat analysis shall be done wherein the carbon steel sheet shall conform to the required chemical composition for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and copper. Sheet and strip source materials shall undergo the tension test and conform with the specified tensile values of yield point, tensile strength, and elongation.
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.
1.1 This specification covers cold-formed, light gage carbon steel sheet piling of structural quality for use in the construction of shore walls, trench shoring, wingwalls, bulkheads, and like applications.
1.3 When the sheet piling is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service will be used. See Appendix X3 of Specification A6/A6M for information on weldability.
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
