Re: 44 ksi Steel used in Canada ?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     44 ksi (yield) is a common grade of steel in Canada.  It is called the 
     44W - for Weldable. It corresponds to 300 MPa.
     They also use US shapes, but rolled in Canada.  I don't recognize the 
     sizes you listed.

I am working on a project that involves a chemical plant in West Hill, 
Ontario. In a 1975 report, the engineer says the structural steel  used has a 
yield of 44,000 psi. Is there a grade of steel used there with this minimum 
specified yield, or I am wondering if it is A36 and he is giving the tested 
There is also a beam identified as 15 x 5-1/2 I 42.9 and one that is        
18 I @ 54.7 with section modulus stated as 89.3. I don't see anything exactly 
like that in the AISC. Are these Canadian sizes ?
