Carbon steel fatigue and temperature properties

  1. Jul 7, 2014 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I need some specific mechanical properties of A516 carbon steel, but as yet I am unable to find it online. Can you help me find the fatigue limit and the relation between yield strength and temperature? Are there tabulated values for this?


    edit: found it! seems i need the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code part 2: materials section D: properties...

    I'm sorry you are not generating any responses at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us? Any new findings?

    Thanks Greg,

    no worries! i found where i can find the data i need and had already put it in the edit of the opening post. that's probably why nobody has reacted.

    One pretty much has to buy the appropriate ASME BPV section/case for a code/case material.

    ASM has some books, including one on Carbon steels, but they are fairly general. If one is using a case, then buy the appropriate documentation.
