Drop-Weight Test for Determination of Nil-Ductility Transition Temperature: User's Experience with ASTM Method E 208
STP 919 addresses the user’s experience with the drop weight test, ASTM standard E 208, which determines the nil ductility transition temperature of ferritic steels. The four broad topics of this book are: unusual material behavior; advantages of the test including correlations with service, other tests, or both; Shortcomings of the method; and unique testing equipment and experimental techniques.
