    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods cover establishment of procedures for conducting tests to determine the mechanical properties of metric externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, and rivets.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F16 on Fasteners, these test methods were withdrawn in November 2014 and replaced by Test Methods F606/F606M for Determining the Mechanical Properties of Externally and Internally Threaded Fasteners, Washers, Direct Tension Indicators, and Rivets .1

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover establishment of procedures for conducting tests to determine the mechanical properties of metric externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, and rivets.

    1.2 Property requirements and the applicable tests for their determination are specified in individual product standards. In those instances where the testing requirements are unique or at variance with these standard procedures, the product shall specify the controlling testing requirements. In the absence of any specified test requirement(s), these test methods shall apply.

    1.3 These test methods describe mechanical tests for determining the following properties:
