RE: STRUCTURAL STEEL: Large Pipe Column?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I suppose. What are the properties for that material? I do not have any
information on it.

Does it have a corresponding ASTM designation?

I would think such material would be easy enough to procure, but since I
only need a little bit of it-less than 30 feet-it might be pretty expensive.
API material is usually ordered in thousand-ton quantities!

I haven't bothered to check the relative properties, but is API 5L pipe an
option?
