This problem occurs most commonly in NL and PL measurements in highly banded structures. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the banding or alignment characteristic at specic locations. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. If possible, a gf load should be used, particularly if the equivalent Rockwell C hardness HRC is to be estimated. The Knoop microindentation hardnesses gf for matrix and segregate are converted to HRC values Eq 1 and Eq 3 of Annex A2 and the carbon contents are e268 using Eq 2 or Eq 4 Annex A2depending on the hardness level.

Because the degree of banding or orientation may vary through the product cross section, the test plane should sample the entire cross section. The correlation coefficient is 0.

Tangent hits are counted as one intersection. S1268 Publis lished hed Apr April il The Knoop indenter is particularly well suited for this work. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. NOTE 3—If the difference in Knoop hardness between the bands is not large, the statistical signicance of the difference can be determined e268 the t-test as described in most statistics textbooks.

Generally, it is best to count the banded phase present in least amount. The above equation is simple to use with a pocket calculator. Last previous edition E — Calculation of Results The relative accuracy of test measurements parallel to the hotworking axis is nearly always poorer than for measurements perpendicular to the deformation direction, as demonstrated by the test data in Annex A1.

The deformation axis in each microstructure shown is horizontal. The grid used for these asttm consisted of eight parallel lines, spaced 20 mm 0. The microindentation hardness method may be used for such structures.

This method is only applicable to as-quenched, fully martensitic steels minor levels of retained austenite will be present in higher carbon steels with carbon contents from 0. The deformation axis in each microstructure shown is horizontal. Originally published as E — The test grid is astk over the image projected onto the digitizing tablet and a cursor is used for counting.

Etching must produce strong contrast between satm phases or constituents of interest. Precision and Bias It is best if the etchant used does not reveal grain boundaries within a given phase. E — 01 Standard Aztm for Assessing the Degree of Banding or Orientation of Microstructures1 This standard is issued under the xed wstm E ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.

This practice covers procedures to describe the appearance of banded structures, procedures for characterizing the extent of banding, and a microindentation hardness procedure for determining the difference in hardness between bands in heat treated specimens.

There are presently no absolute guides between the measured quantitative parameters and the qualitative terms used to describe the microstructure.

For fully martensitic carbon and alloy steels 0. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A number in paren parenthese thesess indicates the year of last reappr reapproval. If a line ends within a particle, patch or grain, count it as one half an interception. Hardenability studies have demonstrated this relationship for fully martensitic microstructures in steels rapidly quenched from the prescribed austenitizing temperatures.

This method is applicable only to steels with carbon contents from 0. Test specimens should be prepared as described in 7. 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. Next, depending on the measurements performed, list the anisotropy index or indexesAI, calculated in Align the specimen so that the deformation direction is horizontal on the projection screen.
