ASTM Standard A992

ASTM A992 Structural Steel

The standards defined and set by ASTM International are essential for the construction industry. These standards help achieve consensus and maximize performance for a complete array of construction materials, including all types of steel alloys.

The ASTM A992 standard specification is employed most frequently in building framing components such as I-beams and wide-flange shapes. In addition to building frames, A992 steel is frequently found in bridge construction and other public infrastructure. This steel is defined by a mixture of elements that includes copper, vanadium, chrome, nickel, and molybdenum.

Excellent Strength and Weldability

The composition of A992 lends itself to improved weldability, adding to its utility for all types of construction projects. This steel maintains a tensile yield strength of 50,000 psi and ultimate tensile strength of 65,000 psi. A992 steel is used to fabricate structural steel components with high corrosion resistance, essential for construction projects that are exposed to harsh weather conditions.

Some of the forms we offer include the following:

Composition Especially Suited for Transportation Projects

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials relies on A992 for many of its construction projects. It is available in a full variety of grades to suit all different applications, with the grade indicating the core strength of the material. A992 steel is generally composed of the following elements:

•  Carbon — < 0.23 %
•  Columbium — < 0.05 %
•  Copper — < 0.60 %
•  Manganese — 0.50 % to 1.50 %
•  Molybdenum — < 0.15 %
•  Nickel — < 0.45 %
•  Phosphorous — < 0.035 %
•  Silicon — < 0.40 %
•  Sulfur — < 0.045 %
•  Vanadium — < 0.11 %
•  Iron — remainder
