    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminum–alloy seamless pipe in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Table 1 [Table 2] and seamless extruded round tube in the alloys and tempers shown in Table 3 [Table 4] intended for pressure applications. The standard sizes for seamless pipe are listed in Table 16.7 of ANSI H35.2 and H35.2M. Nonstandard alloys, tempers, and sizes of pipe are produced as seamless extruded tube.

    A The basis for establishment of tensile property limits is shown in Annex A1.
    B For purposes of determining conformance with this specification, each value for tensile strength and yield strength shall be rounded to the nearest 0.1 ksi, and each value for elongation shall be rounded to the nearest 0.5 %, both in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
    C Elongation of full-section and cut-out sheet-type specimens is measured in 2 in.; of round specimens, in 4 × specimen diameter.
    D For wall thicknesses less than 0.250 in., the minimum elongation is 8 %.
    E For wall thickness 0.050 to 0.259 in., the minimum elongation is 10 %.
    F For wall thickness 0.260 to 0.500 in., the minimum elongation is 12 %.
    G For wall thickness less than 0.125 in., the minimum elongation is 8 %.

    A The basis for establishment of mechanical property limits is shown in Annex A1.
    B For purposes of determining conformance with this specification, each value for ultimate strength and yield strength shall be rounded to the nearest 1 MPa, and each value for elongation shall be rounded to the nearest 0.5 %, both in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
    C Elongations in 50 mm apply for pipe tested in full-section and to sheet type specimens taken from pipes having a wall up to 12.50 mm thick. Elongations in 5D

    Equation B0241_B0241M-12_2
    where D and A are diameter and cross-sectional area of the specimens respectively, apply to round test specimens machined from wall thicknesses over 6.30 mm.
    D For wall thicknesses up through 6.30 mm the minimum elongation is 8 %.
    E For wall thicknesses over 1.25 through 6.60 mm, the minimum elongation is 10 %.
