FOREWORD

0.1 This Indian Standard (Fifth Revision) was adopted by the Indian

Standards Institution on 15 January 1975, after the draft finalized by


the Wrought Steel Products Sectional Committee had been approved by
the Structural and Metals Division Council.

0.2 This standard was first issued in 1950 in response to a request made
to the Steel Advisory Committee of the Government of India by steel
manufacturers in the cou~ary. It was revised in 1955, 1958, 1962
and 1969.
0.3 In this revision, provision has been made for removal of surface
defects by chipping or grinding as is being followed in many other
countries.
Further, it has been made clear that this standard covers
structural
steel ( standard quality ) intended to be used for all types of
structures
including those sttbjected to dynamic loading and where fatigue,
wide fluctuation of stresses, reversal of stresses and great restraint are
involved as for example in crane gantry girders and road and rail bridges.
Steel specified in this stan atd is suitable for welding provided that the
thickness of material (ices not exceed 20 mm. When the material
conforming to this standard i: over 20 mm thick, special precautions
may be required in case the material is to be welded (see IS: 823~l964*).
0.3.1 The designations of steels have been aligned with the revised
designations given in IS: I 762 (Part I )-1974t. However, the old designattons are also given in parenthesis lbi~ information.
0.4 The steel products conforming to the requirements of this specificatton can be rolled from the billets conformitig to IS 2830-1975 or
IS : 69l4-1973.
Code of procedure for manual metal arc welding of mild steel.

18:226-1975
0.5 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of
this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated,
expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in
accordance with IS : 2~l960*. The number of significant places retained
in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value

in this standard.
1. SCOPE

1.1 This standard covers the requirements for mild steel (standard
quality) plate, sections and bars, etc, designated as Fe4lO-St (5t42-S)
for use in structural work.
1.1.1 The steel may also be supplied in copper-bearing quality in
which case it shall be designated as Fe4lOCu-S (5t42-SC).
2. SUPPLY OF MATERIAL
2.1 General requirements relating to the supply of steel shall conform
to IS : l387-l967~.

3. MANUFACTURE
3.1 Steel shall be manufactured by the open-hearth, electric, duplex,
basic-oxygen or a combination of these processes. In case arty other
process is employed by the manufacturer, prior approval of the purchaser
should be obtained.
3.1.1 Steel shall be supplied semi-killed or killed. Rimming steel

shall be supplied only by special agreement between the purchaser and


the manufacturer.
4. CHEMICAL COMPOSITION
4.1 The ladle analysis of steel, when made in accordance with IS: 2281959, shall be as follows:

Product analysis shall not apply to rimming quality steel.

5. FREEDOM FROM DEFECTS

5.1 All finished steel shall be well and cleanly rolled to the dimensions,
sections and weights specified. The finished material shall be free from
cracks; surface flaws; latninations; rough, jagged and imperfect edges;
and all other harmful defects.

5.2 Minor surface defects may be removed by the manufacturer by


grinding provided that the thick ness is not reduced locally by more than
4 percent (with a maximum of 3 mm). Reductions greater than 4 percent
but not exceeding 7 percent may be made only with the agreement of
the purchaser.
5.2.1 Subject to agreement with the purchaser, surface defects which
cannot be dealt with as in 5.2 may be repaired by chipping or grinding
followed by welding provided that:
a) after complete removal of the defects .ind before welding, th~
thickness of the item is in no place reduced by more than 20
percent;
b) welding is carried out by an apprcved procedure by competent
operators with approved electrodes and that the weld is ground
smooth to the correct nominal thickness; and
c) subsequent to the finish grinding, the item may be required
to be normalized or otherwise heat~treated. at the purchasers
discretion.

15:226 -1975
6. SELECTION AND PREPARATION OF TEST SAMPLES
6.1 The points from which test samples are taken shall be so located in
the product as to yield the clearest possible information regardin~
properties in the cross-sectional and longitudinal pLnes. The recommended locations for taking test samples for plates, sections and bars are
indicated in Fig. 1. Alternatively, in case of sections, the samples may be
taken from the web.

6.2 Wherever practicable, the rolled surface of the steel shall be retained
on the two opposite sides of the test sample.
6.3 In case of flat test samples for tensile test, both surfaces are normally
tQ be left on the test specimen for plate up to 32 mm thick. At least
.dne rolled surface shall be left on rectangulat test samples taken from
plate more than 32 mm thick. Round test samples are permitted, but
should only be adopted for thickness exceeding 28 mm.
6.4 In case of flats up t& 16 mm thick, the test sample shall undergo, if
possible, no machining whatsoever prior to use as a test piece. If this is
not possible, the test sample shall undergo the minimum amount of
machining.
6.5 Barsbelo~28 mm may also be tested without machining. In case of
bars having diameters or thicknesses between 28 and 71 mm, the bars
-may be symmetrically reduced by machining. For bars having diameters
or thicknesses exceeding 71 mm, the test sample may be taken from the
position shown in Fig. 1.
6.6 In the case of sections, flats and plates, bend tests are to be carried
out on rectangular test samples which, as far as possible, should be of
the full thickness of the product. In the case of sections, flats and plates
.exceeding 28 mm in thickness, it is permissible to remove metal fnim one
side of the test sample before using it as a test piece. The rolled surface

of the test piece shall be on the outer side of the bend during the test.
6.7 Before test samples are detached, full particulars regarding cast
number, size and weight of plates, sections, flats and bars in each cast
shall be furnished by the manufacturer to the purchaser. In case of
plates, the number of plates in each cast shall also be given.
6.8 Test samples shall be cut in such a manner that deformation is avoid.
ed as far as possible, if guillotining or flame-cutting is employed, an
adequate allowance shall be left for removal by machining.
6.9 Test samples taken from rolled steel which have undergone deformation through bending or twisting shall in all cases be straightened cold.
If the deformation is too severe to allow cold straightening, it is persnissible, in the case of materials to be delivered i~ the annealed or
normalized condition. to carry out straightening under the application
of heat, provided the temperature does not exceed 65000. While
straightening test samples, care shall be taken to avoid any cold-working
or temperature rise which will alter the properties of the samples as
compared with the finished product which they represent.
