ASTM A992 Beam

Characteristics

ASTM A992 is the most commonly used beam in construction. It is a structural steel containing small additions of vanadium or columbium, copper, nickel, chrome, and molybdenum, which provide A992 with better material definition. In most cases it can be dual certified to A572 grade 50, exhibiting the high strength and improved weight-to-strength found in A572 carbon steel.

Applications

A992 steel is used for I- and H-beams for bridge construction and building frames.
