    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives requirements in specified nominal diameters and width across flats, of bars of round, square and hexagonal cross sections, for the manufacture of bolts, studs and nuts for pressure retaining applications at either sub-zero or elevated temperatures and rolled and forged billets (i.e. semi-finished bars) for further processing into bars and blanks for these products. Covers bars and billets supplied in a range of steels comprising medium carbon steel, low alloy steels, austenitic and martensitic stainless steels and precipitation hardenable stainless steel. Provides sub-zero temperature impact properties for a number of these grades and for their verification.
