Anyone know where I can find specifications for steel SAE1009?
I am reading a catalogue from a local pipe supplier and it seems to me that this is a steel not suitable for structural work, but I want to be sure. Thanks in advance.
You can be absolutely sure SAE 1009 isn't a structural steel. The SAE designations are chemistry only; real structural steels specify chemistry, mechanical properties and necessary manufacturing process variables. 1009 is a very soft steel used for cold formed sheet metal where strength isn't all that important. Get yourself a copy of _Machinery's Handbook_ for a general discussion of SAE grades of steel.
