May 03, 2007 · The thickness of the flanges of the A588 is 1 3/4". The A588 material is Grade B. The A572 material is a similar thickness. The structure is statically loaded and will be exposed to temperatures from +100degF to 0degF. Weld are typically large fillets, but include full penetration groove welds (TC-U4c).
What are the specific grades of A 588 and A 572?The yield point for both materials is 50 ksi. The A588 is a rolled beam, the A572 is structural plate. Does that help?It helps some, but you don't provide enough information as to the application (low temperature service conditions) and weld joint detail. ASTM A 58...The thickness of the flanges of the A588 is 1 3/4". The A588 material is Grade B. The A572 material is a similar thickness. The structure is stat...No, stress relief (post weld heat treatment) should not be performed, otherwise impact toughness properties will degrade.It shouldn't be a problem. We routinely allow substitution of A 588 for A 572 Gr. 50 or 50S.
