What is ASTM A829?ASTM A829 is a Specification for Alloy Structural Steel Plates
CategoryStructural Steel Plates
ScopeThis specification covers structural quality alloy steel plates. The plates are usually specified to chemical composition requirements, but tensile properties may also be specified.
Ok let's start with ASTM A829 chemical composition.
C0.36 - 0.44
Mn0.75 - 1.00
Si0.15 - 0.35
Cr0.80 - 1.10
Mo0.15 - 0.25
Learn more about chemical composition.
Now it's the mechanical properties turn:
When tensile requirements are specified, the requirements must be compatible with the chemical composition, condition, and the plate thickness.
Learn more about what is tensile strength.
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 A829 currently ranks 169 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 168 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 A829 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.
