FOREWORD

0.1This Indian Standard ( First Revision ) was adopted by the Indian


Standards Institution on 24 August 1979, after the draft finalized by the Steel Tubes, Pipes and Fittings Sectional Committee had been approved by the Structural and Metals Division Council. 0.2 This standard was first published in 1965. As a result of the experience gained since its publication it has been decided to revise this standard incorporating a few changes. Provision relating to surface protection of pipes during transit, permissible fin height and marking have been added. A reference has been made to IS : 5429-1979* and Amendment No. 1 has also been incorporated in this revision. 0.3 In the formulation of this standard due weightage has been given to international co-ordination among the standards prevailing in different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the field in this country. This has been met by deriving assistance from the following publications: B. S. 980: 1950 Steel tubes for automobile purposes. Institution. British Standards

DIN 2391 : 1967 Sheet 1 -Seamless steel precision tubes cold-drawn or cold-rolled special grade accuracy sizes. Deutscher Normenausschuss.

DIN 2393: 1957 Welded precision steel tubes cold drawn to close tolerances. Deutscher Normenausschuss. ASTM Designation : A 268-61 Seamless and welded ferritic stainless steel tubing for general service. American Society for Testing and Materials. ASTM Designation : A 269-61 Seamless and welded austenitic stainless steel tubing for general service. American Society for Testing and Materials.
*Dimensions for steel tubes for automotive purposes ( first revision ).

IS : 3074- 1979 0.4 The composition

given for different types of steel tubes in this standard has been brought in line with IS: 1570-1961*. 0.5 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS: 2-19607. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
1. SCOPE 1.1 This standard covers the requirements for steel tubes for use in automotives including scooters and motorcycles, in sizes up to and including 1143 mm outside diameter and of the following types: Type of Tube Tube Designation Reference

3.3 A sufficient discard shall be removed from each ingot to secure freedom from piping, undue segregation, and other harmful defects. 4. WORKMANSHIP 4.1 Tubes shall be free from loose rust, scale and other harmful unless specified otherwise, ends of tubes shall be cut square. 4.2 The height of the internal specified wall thickness. 5. STRAIGHTNESS 5.1 Unless agreed to otherwise between the purchaser and the manufacturer, tubes shall not deviate from straightness by more than 1/600th of any length, measured at the centre of that length. 6. MECHANICAL 6.0 Mechanical TESTS tests, where specified, shall be carried out as follows. fin shall be not greater than 60 percent defects, of the

test shall be made on lengths cut from the ends 6.1 Tensile Tests -Tensile of selected tubes ( the ends being plugged for grips where necessary ) or on longitudinal strips, not including the weld, cut from tubes. The tensile strength, yield stress and the percentage elongation shall be determined in accordance with IS : 1894-1972 and shall be not less than that specified. 6.2 Flattening Test - Flattening test shall be made on lengths cut from the ends of selected tubes in accordance with IS: 232%1963t. The tubes shall be capable, without showing crack or flaw, of being flattened until the interior surfaces, at the middle, are brought to such a position that the distance apart is not more than that specified. In the cast of welded tubes the weld shall be placed at the point of maximum curvature. The burrs may be removed before testing. 6.3 Crushing Test -The test piece shall be capable of being crushed endwise, without cracking, until its length is reduced by at least the specified percentage of the original length. The length of the test piece shall be about one-and-a-half times the outside diameter of the tube and the ends shall be cut square to the axis of the tube. 6.4 Drifting Test-This IS : 2335-1963:.

For the purpose of this test, tubes shall not be belled by spinning methods. 6.5 Re-test - Should anyone of the test pieces first selected fail to pass any of the tests specified, two further samples shall be selected for testing in respect of each failure. In case the test pieces from both of these additional samples pass, the materials,shall be deemed to comply with the requirements of that particular test. Should the test pieces from either of these additional samples fail, the material represented by the test samples shall be liable to rejection. 7.
