Significance and Use
These test methods for the chemical analysis of metals and alloys are primarily intended to test such materials for compliance with compositional specifications. It is assumed that all who use these test methods will be trained analysts, capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen, in steel, iron, nickel, and cobalt alloys having chemical compositions within the following limits:
