Get a detailed explanation of HOW & WHY one steel is comparable to another—NO OTHER BOOK currently on the market does this. Completely UPDATED and REVISED, the new edition includes over: • 1,000 new and updated alloys • 1,700 data changes • 5,000 alloys listed from 350 worldwide standards • Expanded table of contents and 4 subject indexes Additionally, Chapter 5 on Pipes and Tubes has been completely rewritten and reorganized.
Recently revised A 240 stainless steels that now pertains to pressure vessel and general applications have been added to Chapter 8 on Wrought Stainless Steels, but are also still listed in Chapter 4 on Pressure Vessel Steel Plates.
Also, there has been a significant increase of EN standards replacing former national European and UK standards. This publication assists the reader by grouping comparable steels based on their chemical composition and/or mechanical properties according to a detailed set of rules outlined in the first chapter.
It also takes into account product form, application, and type of service, and aids in finding the new CEN standards that have replaced former national standards from Europe and the UK.
This has changed dramatically since the publication of the 2002 edition.
This product includes: • Criteria for comparing steels, including examples of the comparison process • Updated! Defining the rules of comparison, including the list of comparison rules—includes changes in this edition • Updated! Non-comparable steels (not all steels have comparable counterparts) —expanded in this edition; with new EN standards, former non-comparable steels are now comparable and vice versa.
• Designation systems of ASTM, SAE, UNS, and CSA are explained with lots of examples. • Introduction to European (EN) standard steel designation systems, including steel names and steel numbers. • Latest designation changes from DIN, BSI, and AFNOR to their new CEN designations. • And Much More!
