GB standards for steel materials

Abstract:

This group of Chinese (GB) standard specifications covers carbon and alloy steel plates and forgings used in boilers and pressure vessels, high-strength low-alloy steels, heat-treatable steels, hot and cold-rolled plates for cold forming, steels for concrete reinforcement and prestressed concrete and the properties for railway service rails and accessories. Standards for various types of steel pipe which specify requirements for high-temperature service, ordinary use, and special applications such as fire protection use, are also presented. Specifications for steel tubes list standard requirements for boiler and superheater tubes, general service tubes, still tubes in refinery service, heat exchanger and condenser tubes, mechanical and structural tubing. Steel casting specifications call out the standard properties for pressure purposes.

Review of GB Standards for steel consists of one volume. It contains formally approved GB standard classifications, guides, practices, specifications, test methods and terminology and related material such as proposals.

Covers:

The following data are given for each standard: standard number, grade, chemical composition and mechanical properties (yield point, tensile strength, notch toughness). When deemed useful, steel type, manufacturing method, thickness of plate, heat treatment and other data are described.

With Total Materia finding information about a metal standard specification, its current status and the materials it defines is one click away.

Within seconds it is also possible for you to find related detailed material property data or search equivalent materials starting from the Total Materia standard list.

To get started, click on the standard list button in the menu bar.


By simply selecting a Standard Development Organization (SDO) and/or typing the standard number, you receive immediate results from the multi-lingual database containing over 30,000 standards.

For example, you can review all metal standards from GB by selecting this SDO from the popup.


The result list consists of over 1300 GB metal standards. Information includes: standard description, year of last issue, current status (valid, replaced, etc.) and a hot link to the materials defined by this standard.


By simply clicking the materials hot link, you can see a list of metal materials defined by the selected standard.


From the list of materials, you can review detailed properties and equivalents of each material.
