    1. Rationale

    At the regularly scheduled meeting of the ASTM A04.02 subcommittee in November, 2013, the committee discussed the need to Revise text in Section 1.3 as follows: 1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The metric values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for informational purposes only and are not to be considered standard. Revise Table 1 as follows: Table 1 Tensile Test Requirements Tensile strength, min, psi [MPa] 40000 [276] Yield strength, min, psi [MPa] 30000 [207] Elongation in 2in. [50 mm], min % 5 [5] these changes are necessary to correct metric conversion issues within the testing procedures and to indicate that metric units given are provided for informational purposes.
