This specification covers the general requirements for carbon, structural, and high-strength, low alloy steel sheets in coils and cut lengths. The steel sheets shall be manufactured by hot-rolling, cold-rolling or temper rolling. Cold-rolled sheets shall undergo annealing after being cold reduced to thickness. Products shall undergo cast or heat analysis, product, check, or verification analysis, and sampling. Product analyses shall be performed wherein specimens shall conform to required chemical composition of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, copper, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, columbium, niobium, titanium, aluminum, and nitrogen. Mechanical properties of the materials shall conform to the following properties: tensile strength, yield strength, and bending strength. Thickness, length, width and flatness tolerances and allowances for cold-rolled and hot-rolled sheets are indicated. Steel may be produced as ingot-cast or strand-cast.
