ASTM A514 steel

ASTM A514 Alloy Steel Application

This ASTM A514 specification covers quenched and tempered alloy steel plates of structural quality in thickness of 6 in. and under.The low carbon content of this grade allows ASTM A514 steel to be used in welded structures; ASTM A514  is suitable welding procedures for the grade and intended use are required. This ASTM A514 steel must be made to a fine grain practice and shall be killed. General requirements for delivery, Material shall conform to the requirements of ASTM A6. ASTM A514 standard is the Standard Specification for High-Yield-Strength, Quenched and Tempered Alloy Steel Plate, Suitable for Welding used in applications where Yield Strengths of ≥ 100 ksi are required for plates up to 2-1/2" thick, inclusive.  

ASTM A514  Alloy Properties

The properties of ASTM A514 steel include eight common variations. This page shows summary ranges across all of them. For more specific values, follow the links immediately below. The graph bars on the material properties cards further below compare ASTM A514 steel to: wrought alloy steels in the same category (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.

Plates > 2-1/2"  and ≤ 6" in thickness have a minimum Yield Strength requirement of 90 ksi.    Each grade has different chemistry requirements.  Typical applications include transport trailers, construction equipment, crane booms, mobile man-lifts, agricultural equipment, heavy vehicle frames and chassis, and welded bridge structural members.
