This specification covers steel castings for general structural purposes.
Keywordsbuilding construction, cast structural steel similar to wrought grades
It is possible to cast similar grades to wrought grades used in building construction (and for other structural purposes). Purchasers are currently limited to the cast grades in ASTM, which do not mirror the requirements (chemistry, tensile properties, etc.) of the wrought ASTM grades (A36, A572 and A992). Purchasers who are not familiar with castings, are likewise not familiar with how to call out NDT. This new standard will address these.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.Back to Top
