What is ASTM A335?ASTM A335 is a Specification for Seamless Ferritic Alloy-Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service.
ScopeThis specification covers nominal wall and minimum wall seamless ferritic alloy-steel pipe intended for high-temperature service.
Ok let's start with ASTM A335 chemical composition.
C0.05 - 0.15
Mn0.30 - 0.60
Si0.50 - 1.00
Cr1.00 - 1.50
Mo0.44 - 0.65

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 A335 currently ranks 38 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 37 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 A335 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.
