ASTM WK40273

    Revision of E1921 - 12 Standard Test Method for Determination of Reference Temperature,

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1921 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: E08.07 | Committee E08 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    E1921 assumes homogeneous data sets - and this in not ever the case, though it is often an adequate assumption. This work will add a nonmandatory appendix providing a procedure to investigate and quantify the inhomogeneity of the test material and the effect that the inhomgeneity has on the tolerance bounds of the ductile-to-brittle reference temperature evaluated using E1921.
