What is ASTM A1011?ASTM A1011 is a Specification for Steel, Sheet and Strip, Hot-Rolled, Carbon, Structural, High-Strength Low-Alloy, High-Strength Low-Alloy With Improved Formability, and Ultra-High-STRENGTH
ScopeThis specification covers hot-rolled, carbon, structural, high-strength low-alloy, high-strength low-alloy with improved formability, and ultra-high strength steel sheet and strip, in coils and cut lengths.
Ok let's start with ASTM A1011 chemical composition.

Learn more about density.
Elastic Modulus190 GPa (27557 ksi) - 210GPa (30458 ksi).
Learn more about the Elastic Modulus.
Poisson's Ratio0.27 – 0.30.
Learn more about the poisson ratio.
Allowable StressDepends on the project (And its factor of safety).
Learn more about the what is allowable stress.
My Material's RankWhile engineers will often look for the cheapest material they can use, I took a different approach to material's selection to help newbie students.
I ranked materials according to their yield strengths and ASTM A1011 currently ranks 79 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 78 materials that are more resistant.
Note: I've analysed 134 materials in order to create an yield strength index. Check my astm material's comparison post for more details.

CitationWhen you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.
That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.
To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:
Luz, Gelson. ASTM A1011 Properties (Chem., Mech. & Rankings). Materials Blog. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>
Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
