What is ASTM A353?ASTM A353 is a Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Alloy Steel, Double-Normalized and Tempered 9% Nickel.
CategorySteel Plates, Sheets, and Strip for Pressure Vessels
ScopeThis specification covers double-normalized and tempered 9% nickel steel plates intended particularly for welded pressure vessels for cryogenic service.
Ok let's start with ASTM A353 chemical composition.
Si0.15 - 0.40
Ni8.50 - 9.50
Learn more about chemical composition.
Now it's the mechanical properties turn:
75 ksi (515 MPa) min. Yield strength
Learn more about what is yield strength.
100 - 120 ksi (690 - 825 MPa) min.
Learn more about what is tensile strength.
Elongation (min.) 50 mm20.0.
Learn more about what is elongation.
Reduction of Area (min. %)Not Required.
Learn more about reduction of area.
To be made at -195°C and according to A20
Learn more about impact testing (charpy v notch).
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 A353 currently ranks 26 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 25 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 A353 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.
