Acknowledgements
The authorgratefully acknowledges the assistance of Michael Ling, P.Eng. and Denise Lamy,
P.Eng., who were the Assistant Editors of the second (DS67A) and third (DS67B) editions of this
handbook. They worked many long hours, weekends, and holidays to researching hundreds of
standards and double-checking thousands of pieces of data. Their work in compiling the heat
treatment terms for each standard andresearching the new EN piping and tubing standards was of
particular importance. They were also my main sounding boards when difficult technical decisions
had to be made.
There were also several ASTM committee members contacted for their input during the progress of
this handbook, including Ralph Davison, Frank Christensen, David Knupp, and John Mahaney.
They added valuable insights into thehistory and technical aspects of the ASTM standards data
found in this handbook. The ASTM publishing staff—including Kathy Dernoga, Roberta Storer and
Margie Lawlor—was most supportive of my requests to obtain access to the hundreds of standards
needed to write this book and assistance with editing. I appreciate their patience and confidence in
me to complete the work. Thank you all.
Theauthor also acknowledges the dedicated assistance of Steven Li and Nina Phan who assisted in
the research and entered much of the data in the book with care and diligence. A special thank you
to Christine Doyle who entered data almost endlessly into the late hours of the night for the second
edition (DS67A), and to Debbie Knack–who kept the office running smoothly during the production
of thishandbook.
A special thanks is extended to IHS Engineering Products for use of their Engineering Resource
Center (ERC).
One person could not have produced this handbook and the accompanying e-book. It took a dedicated
team of professionals. These acknowledgments cannot adequately express the author’s sincere
appreciation and gratitude for everyone’s assistance. Without it, this book would neverhave been
completed.

Preface
This is the book I never wanted to write, but always wanted to own. As a metallurgical engineer and
long time user of steel standards, author of the four CASTI Metals Data Books, and member of
ASTM A01 and B02 standard committees, I knew all too well the many pitfalls and challenges of
writing such a...
