1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers nominal (average) wall steel pipe piles of cylindrical shape and applies to pipe piles in
which the steel cylinder acts as a permanent load-carrying member, or as a shell to form cast-in-place concrete piles.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical
conversions of the values in inch-pound units to values in SI units.
1.3 The text of this specification contains notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. Such notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables and figures, do not contain any
mandatory requirements.
1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 16 of this specification. This
standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user
of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

for Natural Gas and Oil Pipelines Q235B S275 S275jr A53 Spiral Welded Steel Pipe PileWhen the cofferdam is used, the steel pipe piles are overlapped with each other in an arc or circular shape. It can enclose water, soil and sand. The utility model has the advantages of novel design, simple structure, convenient use, easy lapping and good sealing. It includes non-circular cross section profile, equal wall thickness, variable wall thickness, variable diameter and variable wall thickness along the length direction, symmetric and asymmetric cross section, etc. Such as square, rectangular, tapered, trapezoidal, spiral tube, etc.for Natural Gas and Oil Pipelines Q235B S275 S275jr A53 Spiral Welded Steel Pipe Pile

3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions—Definitions of terms used in this specification shall be in accordance with Terminology A 941.
3.1.1 defect—an imperfection of sufficient size or magnitude to be cause for rejection.
3.1.2 imperfection—any discontinuity or irregularity found
in the pipe.
4. Ordering Information
4.1 Orders for material under this specification shall contain
information concerning as many of the following items as are
required to describe the desired material adequately:
4.1.1 Quantity (feet or number of lengths),
4.1.2 Name of material (steel pipe piles),
4.1.3 Method of manufacture (seamless or welded),
4.1.4 Grade (Tables 1 and 2),
4.1.5 Size (outside diameter and nominal wall thickness),
4.1.6 Lengths (single random, double random, or uniform)
(see Section 13),
4.1.7 End finish (Section 15), and
4.1.8 ASTM specification designation and year of issue,
4.1.9 Location of purchaser’s inspection (see 19.1), and
4.1.10 Bar coding (see 22.2).
5. Materials and Manufacture
5.1 The piles shall be made by the seamless, electric
resistance welded, flash welded, or fusion welded process. The
seams of welded pipe piles shall be longitudinal, helical-butt,
or helical-lap.
NOTE 1—For welded pipe piles, the weld should not fail when the
product is properly fabricated and installed and subjected to its intended
end use.
6. Process
6.1 The steel shall be made by one or more of the following
processes: open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric-furnace.
7. Chemical Composition
7.1 The steel shall contain no more than 0.050 % phosphorous.

separately and its weight shall not vary more than 15 % over or
5 % under its theoretical weight, calculated using its length and
its weight per unit length (see Section 11).
12.2 Outside Diameter—The outside diameter of pipe piles
shall not vary more than 61 % from the specified outside
12.3 Wall Thickness—The wall thickness at any point shall
not be more than 12.5 % under the specified nominal wa

shown in Table X1.1 (see Appendix) for various nominal wall thicknesses.
