ASTM A479 Scope: This specification covers hot- and cold-finished bars of stainless steel, including rounds, squares, and hexagons, and hot-rolled or extruded shapes such as angles, tees, and channels for use in boiler and pressure vessel construction. Four grades of the stainless steel are available which includes austenitic, austenitic-ferritic, ferritic, and martensitic grades. Mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and hardness shall be determined for the specimens subjected to normalized, tempered, annealed, and quenched conditions. The austenitic stainless steels shall be subjected to heat treatment and shall undergo corrosion test.
