Re: ASTM A 36 steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


This still would not help.  The bolt specification is ASTM F1554 (not A1554) however it is not by itself a material grade but rather a manufacturing specification for grades 36, 55, and 105 ksi yield strengths.

Oops... I guess they would call if I specified A1556, because that doesn't
exist.  I really meant to say A1554.
