RE: Properties of SA508 Class III steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I found an entry for SA508 forgings in the Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code,
Section VIII, Div. 2, Table UCS-23.  For Grade 3, it gives yield as 50 ksi,
tensile as 80 ksi, and allowable stress as 21.3 ksi up to 200 degrees F.

	Can someone help me get this information?

	I would like to know the properties of SA508 Class III steel.  I am
told the
	yield stress is 55 ksi.  I am particularly interested to know if
this steel is
	weldable.

	I looked though my ASTM standards and have informatin to A508 steel,
but it
	refers to ASME for SA508 steel.

	If anyone has ASME with SA508, may I get a faxed copy?  If it is too
lengthy
	document, could it be mailed to me?

	Thanks in advance.
