ASTM-A1085 › Standard Specification for Cold-Formed Welded Carbon Steel Hollow Structural Sections (HSS)
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers cold-formed welded carbon steel hollow structural sections (HSS) for welded or bolted construction that are used in, although not limited to, buildings, bridges, towers, cranes, sign supports and poles, off-shore production and drilling platforms, roll-over protective structures (ROPS), falling object protective structures (FOPS), and amusement rides. This HSS is produced in welded sizes with a periphery of not more than 88 in. [2235 mm] as well as a specified nominal wall thickness of at least 0.148 in. [3.8 mm] and not more than 0.875 in. [22 mm]. The standard addresses areas such as ordering information, the steel-making process, HSS manufacture, heat analysis, product analysis, tensile requirements, flattening test, permissible variations in dimensions, number of tests, retests, test methods, rejection, certification, product marking, packing and loading, and government procurement.

1.1 This specification covers cold-formed welded carbon steel hollow structural sections (HSS) for welded or bolted construction. These shapes are utilized in but not limited to the following applications: buildings, bridges, towers, cranes, sign supports and poles, off-shore production and drilling platforms, roll-over protective structures (ROPS), falling object protective structures (FOPS), and amusement rides.
1.2 This HSS is produced in welded sizes with a periphery of 88 in. [2235 mm] or less, and a specified nominal wall thickness of 0.148 in. [3.8 mm] or greater and 0.875 in. [22 mm] or less.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the “M” designation of this specification is specified in the order.
1.4 The text of this specification contains notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. Such notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables and figures, do not contain any mandatory requirements.
