A-656 Hot-Rolled Structural Steel, High-Strength Low-Alloy, HSLA, Plate with Improved Formability

Description

This specification covers the three types and four strength grades of high strength low-alloy, hot rolled structural steel plate with improved formability. These steels are normally furnished in the as-rolled condition. For plates produced from coil, and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, additional testing requirements and the reporting of additional test results, of a reference material shall apply. Chemical composition requirements shall be dependent upon thickness, grade, and intended applications. Tension tests shall be executed to evaluate conformance of specimens with specified mechanical properties requirements.

Applications

Truck frames, brackets, crane booms, rail cars and similar applications when lighter weight and improved formability are critical.
