There is a newer edition of this document available.
This is a service Code for reference by the boiler and pressure vessel construction Codes providing tables of material properties including allowable, design, tensile and yield stress values, physical properties and external pressure charts and tables. Part D facilitates ready identification of materials to specific Sections of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. Part D contains appendices which contain criteria for establishing allowable stress, the bases for establishing external pressure charts, and information required for approval of new materials. Access to the online version of the stress tables is included with purchase of this hard copy.
This publication is issued with an automatic addenda service. All addenda service publications are issued in loose leaf format to facilitate later insertion of replacement pages which incorporate the latest approved changes to the standard. Purchasers may wish to purchase a binder from ASME (BPVC Binder), but the publication will also fit a standard three ring binder. The addenda service includes all updates issued prior to publication of the next edition in July 2013.
