AISI 1566 Carbon Steel

    Where can I find the yield strength for AISI 1566 Carbon Steel? I tried googling it but I can't find a reliable value.

    One can buy a material data sheet (MDS) from ASM International

    or check a supplier or commercial site

    or Matweb

    Some data might be found on Key-to-Metals: http://www.keytometals.com/page.aspx?ID=Articles&LN=EN
    However, one have to subscribe or purchase a particular datasheet to get the information on a particular alloy.

    Yield strength will depend on the metallurgical state. Most properties are provided for metals in the recrystallized/annealed state. YS increase with cold-work.

    Nice background in this
