specifications.



mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"">For steel plates can I substitute
ASTM A572 grade 50, or ASTM A A572 Grade 50 KSI Max. for ASTM A36?

That would largely depend on the application. A36 has lower specified yield and tensile strength and marginally higher elongation. For almost all structural applications, I don’t see any issues unless you desired a lower strength or slightly higher ductility. There may be some applications where this is necessary, for some kind of fracture critical or energy absorbing component.

 

Thanks
