A-434 Steel Bas, Alloy, Hot-Wrought or Cold Finished, Quenched & Tempered

Description

This specification covers hot-wrought and cold-finished quenched and tempered alloy steel bars. The steel materials shall be melt processed by using open-heart, basic oxygen, or electric furnace and shall conform to the austenitic grain size requirement. Tension tests shall be performed wherein the steel specimens shall conform to the required values of yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation.

Hot-wrought bars are available in three strength level classes designated BB, BC, and BD, and cold-finished bars in two strength level classes designated BB and BC.
