ASTM Standard List - Structural and Constructional Steels Standards: Part One

Abstract:

ASTM specifications represent a consensus among producers, specifiers, fabricators, and users of steel mill products. ASTM’s designation system for metals consists of a letter (A for ferrous materials) followed by an arbitrary sequentially assigned number. These designations often apply to specific products, for example A548 is applicable to cold-heading quality carbon steel wire for tapping or sheet metal screws.

This article contains a list of standards that covers among other things:

  • Industry specific steel standards for applications in ships, cars and constructional reinforcement
  • A wide range of specific spring steels and their relevant applications
  • Numerous standards covering carbon steels

For more information on the ASTM designation system see our related article:
Introduction to the ASTM Standard Designation.
