Standard Specification for Structural Carbon Steel Plates of Improved Toughness
|Publication Date:||15 December 1993|
|ICS Code (Flat steel products and semi-products):||77.140.50|
1.1 This specification covers structural quality carbon-manganese-sil
1.2 Plates covered by this specification are limited to a maximum thickness of 1.5 in. [40 mm].
1.3 When the steel is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service will be utilized. See Appendix X 3 of Specification A 6/A 6M for information on weldability.
1.4 The values stated in either 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.
