    (1) Update footnotes and headings in Table 2 for consistency with other standards as directed by Subcommittee A01.18. The grade names, along with mechanical property values, were not changed as a result of this ballot. (2) Change Yield Point to Yield Strength determined per 0.2% offset method in Table 2. Yield Point is an outdated term that, according to E6 (Standard Terminology Relating to Methods of Mechanical Testing), has been replaced with Upper Yield Strength. Upper Yield Strength is used when a material exhibits discontinuous yielding. The casting grades in A27 do not exhibit this phenomenon.
