Case 2120-1 VIII, Division 1 construction provided the following addi-

Nickel-Iron-Chromium-Molybdenum-Copper Low tional requirements are met.
Carbon Alloy (UNS N08926) for Code (a) The maximum allowable stress values for the
Construction material shall be those given in Table 3. For welded
Section VIII, Division 1 pipe, welded tubing, and welded fittings, the stress
values shall be multiplied by a factor of 0.85.
(b) For pipe and tube sizes larger than those listed
Inquiry: May austenitic nickel-base alloy (UNS in ASTM B 677 seamless pipe and ASTM B 673
N08926) sheet, strip, plate, bar, fittings, welded pipe welded pipe, the dimensional requirements of ASTM
and tube, and seamless pipe and tube that meet the B 464 shall be used. The maximum nominal pipe size

(1) The revised criterion of 3.5 on tensile strength was used in estab-
lishing these values.
(2) Due to the relatively low yield strength of these materials, these
higher stress values were established at temperatures where the
TABLE 2 short time tensile properties govern to permit the use of these
MECHANICAL PROPERTY REQUIREMENTS alloys where slightly greater deformation is acceptable. These
(All Product Forms) higher stress values exceed 23, but do not exceed 90% of the
yield strength at temperature. Use of these stresses may result
