ASTM A 36
Specification for Structural Steel Plate

DISCUSSION ASTM A 36 steel is a widely accepted general purpose structural quality steel offering a constant 36 ksi min. yield point for all thicknesses of material. It is widely used in the construction of buildings, bridges and other structures by means of welding, bolting or riveting. This steel is useful because of its wide availability. NOTCH TOUGHNESS While these steels are not normally recommended where low temperature notch toughness is critical, they have been used in many bridges and other dynamically loaded structures at temperatures at least as low as those found in the settled areas of Canada. Some improvement in the low temperature notch toughness can be obtained by specifying KILLED FINE GRAIN PRACTICE on all thicknesses, but no consistent minimum value can be expected unless impact testing has been specified by the purchaser. CORROSION RESISTANCE These steels have the same atmospheric corrosion resistance as plain carbon steels, however, this may be enhanced by specifying copper additions.

WELDABILITY ASTM A 36 steel can be easily welded, using good shop or field practices by all of the usual methods; shielded metal-arc, submerged-arc, gas metal-arc and resistance welding. GAS CUTTING This material can be gas cut using good shop or field practices. Cutting of this material generally does not require preheating, but the steel temperature should not normally be below 50°F during cutting. FORMABILITY ASTM A 36 can be cold formed using conventional equipment and good shop practices. Suggested minimum cold forming radii are given in the table.

This may be enhanced somewhat by specifying a minimum copper addition. Hot forming of Q & T steel may impair the physical properties of the as-received plate. Special attention should be given to electrode selection. Typical applications include liner plates in hoppers. Q & T steel can be cold-formed satisfactorily. good weldability and improved notch toughness are required. WELDABILITY Q & T steel plate is readily weldable by all major plate welding processes. since Q & T steel has two to three times the yield strength of common structural grades. lbs. Suitable precautions should be taken to control fabrication procedures. a minimum inside radius of 2t should be used when bending plate up to 1" in thickness and a 3t radius should be used for plate over 1" to 2" thick.
