One Comment

dear mr.Kaushal ji, pl.refer IRC 112. the max 0.2 proof stress for FE 500 and Fe 500D are given as 545 565 Mpa respectively. Please incorporate the codal observation in your above table. I appreciate the wonderful work done by you to educate engineers in understanding the material properties in detail. Regards. K.Jagadeesh.
