What is ASTM A848?ASTM A848 is a Specification for Low-Carbon Magnetic Iron
ScopeThis specification covers the requirements for wrought low-carbon iron having a carbon content of 0.015 % or less with the remainder of the analysis being substantially iron.
Ok let's start with ASTM A848 chemical composition.
Learn more about chemical composition.
Now it's the mechanical properties turn:
Hot rolled (Typical)36 ksi (250 MPa) min.
Learn more about what is yield strength.
Hot rolled (Typical)46 ksi (320 MPa) min.
Learn more about what is tensile strength.
Elongation (min.) Hot rolled (Typical)0.47.
Learn more about what is elongation.
Reduction of Area (min. %)Not Required.
Learn more about reduction of area.
Density7.86 specific gravity.
Learn more about density.
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 A848 currently ranks 85 in my yield strength index. This means there are other 84 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 A848 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.
