Abstract:

Data are presented on the chemical composition and mechanical properties of HY-100 steel manufactured by Broken Hill Proprietary Steel International, Slab and Plate Products Division and heat treated by Bunge Industrial Steels Pty Ltd. These data satisfy the requirements laid down by US Naval Sea Systems Command for first article qualification following a procedure in which explosion bulge testing is waived, but where HY-80 steel from the same source is already qualified. The Australian-made HY-100 steel is found to be eminently suitable for Royal Australian Navy ship construction. Keywords Australia.
