ASTM WK65722

    Revision of A668 / A668M - 17 Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, Carbon and Alloy, for General Industrial Use

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A668 / A668M - 20a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.06 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK65722


    Keywords

    alloy steel forgings; carbon steel forgings; general industrial applications; heat treatment classifications; strength classifications;;

    Rationale

    The test location give states that specimens must be 3.5 inches from the nearest quenched surface. However, for forgings of 7 inches and smaller Tc this is not possible without increasing the Tc of the prolongation or separate test forging to dimensions larger than the forging to be qualified. This ballot provides a solution to that issue.
