This specification has been declared "NONCURRENT "by the Aerospace Materials Division, SAE, as of February 2009. It is recommended, therefore, that this specification not be specified for new designs.
RATIONALE AMS5061H has been stabilized as mature technology that has similar specifications. STABILIZATION NOTICE AMS5061H has been declared "STABILIZED" by AMS Committee E. This document will no longer be updated and may no longer represent standard industry practice. This document was stabilized because other documents contain similar but not necessarily equivalent requirements. Previously this document was reaffirmed non-current. The last technical update of this document occurred in March 2004. Users of this document should refer to the cognizant engineering organization for disposition of any issues with reports/certifications to this specification; including exceptions listed on the certification. NOTE: In many cases, the purchaser may represent a sub tier supplier and not the cognizant engineering organization. AMS Committee E recommends that the following similar but not identical specifications may be considered for future procurement. This listing does not constitute authority to substitute these specifications for the “STABILIZED” specification. ASTM A29/A29M General Requirements for Steel Bars, Carbon and Alloy, Hot-Wrought ASTM A510/A510M General Requirements for Wire Rods and Coarse Round Wire, Carbon Steel, and Alloy Steel
