ASTM A517 covers the standard specification for pressure vessel plate alloy steel, high-strength, quenched and tempered. Steel tested with the practices of ASTM A517 are often used in fusion welded boilers and other pressure vessels. The steel must meet composition requirements and tensile property requirements. Mechanical properties that must meet ASTM A517 requirements include; tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation. To determine these mechanical properties ASTM has constructed test practices for tension tests, and transverse Charpy V-notch impact test.
