Re: STEEL: Stainless Steel for Structural Applications

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

I am not familair with any.  
Perhaps it is so seldom used in these types of applications that the
code developers just don't bother.

We aerospace types use MIL-HDBK-5 for design properties.
We typically require chemical & physical certs be provided when we
purchase materials.
