Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Carbon and Alloy, Hot-Wrought, General Requirements for
|Publication Date:||1 March 2004|
|ICS Code (Steel bars and rods):||77.140.60|
1.1 This specification covers a group of common requirements which, unless otherwise specified in the purchase order or in an individual specification, shall apply to carbon and alloy steel bars under each of the following ASTM specifications (or under any other ASTM specification which invokes this specification or portions thereof):
1.2 In case of any conflict in requirements, the requirements of the purchase order, the individual material specification, and this general specification shall prevail in the sequence named.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
1.4 For purposes of determining conformance to this specification and the various material specifications referenced in , dimensional values shall be rounded to the nearest unit in the right-hand place of figures used in expressing the limiting values in accordance with the rounding method of Practice E 29.
Specification A 29 previously listed dimensional tolerances for cold-finished bars; these are now found in Specification A 108.
