ASTM WK46245

    Work Item: ASTM WK46245 - Revision of A370 - 13 Standard Test Methods and Definitions for Mechanical Testing of Steel Products

    Active Standard: A370 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.13 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    The Rate of Straining Control Method for Determining Yield Properties contained in ASTM E8 is useful when testing materials that exhibit low strain rate sensitivity. Inclusion of this method of determining yield properties in A370 would be helpful when testing such materials that reference A370 for testing.
