Standard Specification for Steel Tubes, Low-Carbon or High-Strength Low-Alloy, Tapered for Structural Use
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
|ICS Code (Steel pipes and tubes for specific use):||77.140.75|
This specification covers three grades of seam-welded, round, tapered steel tubes for structural use. GradesAand B are of low-carbon steel or high-strength low-alloy steel composition and Grade C is of weather-resistant steel composition.
The product may be modified from its round cross section into other shapes without subsequent retesting.
This tubing is produced in welded sizes in a range of diameters from 2 3⁄8 to 30 in. [60 to 762 mm] inclusive. Wall thicknesses range from 0.1046 to 0.375 in. [2.66 to 9.53 mm]. Tapers are subject to agreement with the manufacturer.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
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.
