ASTM WK44340

    Revision of F606 - 11a Standard Test Methods for Determining the Mechanical Properties of Externally and Internally Threaded Fasteners, Washers, Direct Tension Indicators, and Rivets

    (What is a Work Item?)

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


    1. Rationale

    F606 Rationale: It was decided by the attending committee members to change the test speed of the proof load to equal that of the tensile test speed.
