ASTM WK77154

Revision of A514/A514M-18e1 Standard Specification for High-Yield-Strength, Quenched and Tempered Alloy Steel Plate, Suitable for Welding


The chemical requirement for the heat analysis for vanadium for Grade S is listed as 0.06 without any description as to whether this value represents a maximum value, a minimum value or a specified value. This ballot item clarifies that the 0.06 requirement for vanadium for Grade S is a maximum value. To address ambiguity concerning whether the requirement of 6.2 for product analysis is mandatory or only applicable if the purchaser specifies Supplementary Requirement S2 or if the purchaser opts to perform a product analysis as described in ASTM A6, section 7.2, revision to paragraph 6.2 of A514 is proposed to clarify that the requirement of 6.2 is only applicable if a product analysis is made.
