Revision of A105/A105M-23 Standard Specification for Carbon Steel Forgings for Piping Applications


In a previous revision to A105 the last sentence of Section 8.3.3 was to be modified so that it was identical to Section 7.2 of A694. Minutes of the meeting where this modification was discussed indicate that it was to clarify the Section as a result of a difference in interpretation between a producer and a user. For reasons that are unexplained (as the technical contact for the modification passed-away) a portion of Section 7.2 of A694 was not included in the modification. This was brought to the attention of A01.22.03 by a producer. The purpose of this WK is to correct the apparent oversight, which will align the source of a tensile test specimen with other standards including A694, A350, A182, and A707.
