ASTM WK45095

    Revision of E2218 - 02(2008) Standard Test Method for Determining Forming Limit Curves

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2218 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E28.02 | Committee E28 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    E2218 was recently balloted for reapproval. I received one negative concerning its Terminology Section and certain items not complying with the ASTM Form and Style Manual. This negative was found persuasive. The changes have been made below. Only the changes below are being balloted as the rest of the standard was approved.


    circle grid; forming limit curve (FLC); forming limit diagram (FLD); limiting dome height (LDH); major strain; minor strain; strain analysis; Biaxial stress; Cold-rolled steel sheet/strip--specifications; Deep drawing steel; Deformation--metals/alloys; Hemisherical deformation punch test; Metal fabrication strain analysis; Metallic steel sheet; Press performance; Quantitative analysis/measurement; Uniaxial tensile test;
