[Vol. 01.01] - Steel - Piping, Tubing, Fittings

Published annually in January. This volume contains 123 standards. Volume 01.01 features standards for various types of steel pipe that specify requirements for high-temperature service, ordinary use, and special applications, such as fire protection. It includes specifications on steel tubes for boiler and superheater tubes, general service tubes, still tubes in refinery service, heat exchanger and condenser tubes, mechanical tubing, and structural tubing. Steel casting specifications address standard properties for valves, flanges, fittings, and other pressure containing parts for high-temperature and low-temperature service. Others cover black, plain end steel pipe for use in the conveyance of fluids under pressure.

[Vol. 01.02] - Ferrous Castings; Ferroalloys

Published annually in January. This volume contains 120 standards. Volume 01.02 covers specifications and practices that set forth the property requirements of steel castings used for general applications, structural purposes, and high-temperature and low-temperature service. It also features alloy-casting specifications that list the necessary qualities for castings made of nickel and chromium alloys. Others detail property and testing requirements for gray and white iron castings, cast iron pipe and fittings, ductile iron castings, malleable iron castings, and various ferroalloys. Standards that focus on radiographic examination of castings to be used with ASTM's standard reference radiographs appear as well.

[Vol. 01.03] - Steel - Plate, Sheet, Strip, Wire; Stainless Steel Bar

Published annually in February. This volume contains 87 standards. Under the heading of steel plate, sheet, and strip, this volume covers specifications that stress various mechanical property requirements and applications.
