(a) Steel plate: Steel plate materials used to fabricate tank shell and manway nozzle must comply with one of the following specifications with the indicated minimum tensile strength and elongation in the welded condition. The maximum allowable carbon content must be 0.31 percent when the individual specification allows carbon greater than this amount. The plates may be clad with other approved materials.
Specifications Minimum tensile strength (p.s.i.) welded condition1 Minimum elongation in 2 inches (percent) welded condition (longitudinal)
1 Maximum stresses to be used in calculations.
2 These specifications are incorporated by reference (IBR, see § 171.7 of this subchapter).
