British (B.S.) standards for steel materials

B.S. standards for steel materials

 

Review of B.S. Standards for Steel consists of 3 volumes. It contains formally approved B.S. standard classifications, guides, practices, specifications, test methods, and terminology and related material such as proposals.

Covers:

The following data is given for each standard: standard number and year, 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.

This group of B.S. specifications covers the carbon steel forging and alloy steels, plates and forgings used in boilers and pressure vessels, high-strength low-alloy, heat-treatable steels, spring steels, sheet and strip. This volume features standards for various types of steel pipe which specify requirements for high-temperature service, ordinary use, and special applications such as fire protection use. Specifications for steel tubes list standard requirements for boiler and super heater tubes, general service tubes, still tubes in refinery service, heat exchanger and condenser tubes, mechanical tubing, and structural tubing. Steel casting specifications call out the standard properties for pressure purposes. Presentation is group standards for tool steels, stainless, heat resisting and valve steels
