RE: STRUCTURAL STEEL: Large Pipe Column?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The problem is, Harold, that this is only one itsy-bitsy piece of pipe
around 30' long. You really don't have the luxury of specifying something
that would have to be rolled or fabbed upon receipt of the order.

With that material why can't they make it per ASTM A500 Grade C, as opposed
to the pipe spec?  If that is not an option, go ahead and use the A53 with
supplemental requirements.  A53 lists the MINIMUM yield and tensile
strength.  You can require something greater as a supplement.
