The A979/A979M-03(2014)e1 steel grade is a standard specification for cold-formed steel structural framing products. It specifies the chemical composition, mechanical properties, and other requirements for this steel grade.
The chemical composition of the A979/A979M-03(2014)e1 steel grade includes elements such as carbon (C), manganese (Mn), phosphorus (P), sulfur (S), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), molybdenum (Mo), and copper (Cu). The specific composition may vary depending on the manufacturer and specific product variant.
The mechanical properties of the A979/A979M-03(2014)e1 steel grade determine its strength and durability. These properties include yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and fracture toughness. The steel grade must meet certain minimum requirements for these properties to ensure its suitability for structural applications.
The standard number A979/A979M-03(2014)e1 refers to the specific version of the standard that outlines the requirements for the A979/A979M-03 steel grade. This standard is published by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and is widely used in the construction industry for cold-formed steel framing products.
Corresponding to the A979/A979M-03(2014)e1 steel grade, there may be other steel grades with similar chemical compositions and mechanical properties. These corresponding grades may be specified by different standards organizations or may be proprietary grades developed by manufacturers. It is important to ensure that the corresponding grade meets the specific requirements of the intended application.
