ASTM WK42929

    Revision of B312 - 09 Standard Test Method for Green Strength of Specimens Compacted from Metal Powders

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B312 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: B09.02 | Committee B09 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The standard is due for periodic review. The opportunity will be taken to bring it in line with current form and style and to correct the fact that the captions for the two figures in the standard have been switched. In addition, an option will be added to test bars compacted at a given pressure rather than just at a specified green density.
