a "standard" pipe section "DN_" that is an ASTM 53 material. Although ASTM
is a referenced code in our Steel Handbook, I can't find such simple data
without getting hold of the ASTM standard.
Can anyone give me the
properties of that material? (Fy, Fu, etc.) I assume that E is
same/similar to regular steels.
For Canadians, I believe it is close to
The CISC handbook page 6-97 (the page
just before HSS Properties & Dimensions if you have an older copy)
refers to yield strengths of 205 & 240 MPa (30 & 35
The AISC ASD handbook page 1-95 gives Fy = 35 ksi & Fu = 60
ksi. On page 3-35 it advises that A53 pipe may be designed to Fy = 36 ksi,
the same as for A501 pipe - all the AISC tables are based on 36
The ASTM web site gives a short introduction to all standards -
sometimes including a substantial chunk of useful information. Start
at http://www.astm.org and you'll get
there easily enough.
