ASTM WK40686

    Work Item: ASTM WK40686 - Revision of F606M - 12 Standard Test Methods for Determining the Mechanical Properties of Externally and Internally Threaded Fasteners, Washers, and Rivets (Metric)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F606M - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: F16.01 | Committee F16 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    (1)Added requirement for free running cross head speed and calculation of tensile stress area in section 3.5, similar to section 3.4, as discussed at May, 2013, meeting in Indianapolis (2)Modified sections 3.4.3 and 3.5.1 to adequately clarify the question of the location of fracture during tensile/wedge tensile testing of externally threaded fasteners. Most notably, the previous wording allowed for fracture to occur in the shank for a hardened fastener. The current proposal addresses negatives and comments received on SCLB F16.01 (13-01, and is being submitted for concurrent ballot.
