ASTM WK78066

Revision of A595/A595M-18 Standard Specification for Steel Tubes, Low-Carbon or High-Strength Low-Alloy, Tapered for Structural Use

Rationale

Tables 1 and 3 have footnotes relating to when copper is specified. The notes and reference are unnecessary and in the case of Table 3 incorrect regarding allowable copper content. Grade C addresses weather-resistant steel composition in the Scope and Section 6.2. Additionally, Referenced Documents lists corrosion resistant steel A606 not currently cited in the specification text. It belongs in Section 6.2.
