Standard Specification for Hot-Rolled Carbon, Low-Alloy, High-Strength Low-Alloy, and Alloy Steel Floor Plates

Abstract

This specification covers carbon, low-alloy, high-strength low-alloy, and alloy steel hot-rolled floor plates for flooring, stairways, transportation equipment, and general structural purposes. Steel materials shall undergo heat and product analysis. Steel specimens shall also undergo tensile tests and shall conform to the required values of yield point, yield strength, and tensile strength.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers carbon, low-alloy, high-strength low-alloy, and alloy steel hot-rolled floor plates for flooring, stairways, transportation equipment, and general structural purposes. While it is generally provided in the as-rolled condition, floor plate also may be provided in the heat-treated condition, depending on the material specification. Rolled floor plates have raised figures at regular intervals on one surface of the plate.

1.2 Floor plate is available in dimensions that meet the classification size limits for sheet, heavy thickness sheet coil, or plate. Maximum thickness for product delivered under this specification is 1 in. [25 mm].

1.3 When the steel is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service will be utilized. 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 separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and the values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
