ASTM Volume 03.01 Metals -- Mechanical Testing; Elevated and Low-Temperature Tests; Metallography
Volume 03.01 covers tests and practices that outline the standard procedures needed to perform mechanical testing. This includes machine calibration, bend and flexure testing, compression, ductility, formability, elastic properties, impact, linear thermal expansion, shear, torsion, residual stress, tension testing, structural films for MEMS, and electronic applications.
Other standards cover fatigue and fracture testing of materials, including crack tip opening displacement (CTOD), fracture toughness measurement, and linear elastic plane-strain fracture toughness of metallic materials.Also featured are metallography tests and practices that define standard optical, electron, and X-ray procedures for determining the constituents and structure of metals and alloys.
