    Revision of D3878 - 18 Standard Terminology for Composite Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3878 - 19

    Developed by Subcommittee: D30.01 | Committee D30 | Contact Staff Manager




    These ballot items are the result of work in Subcommittee D30.01 which was initiated to consolidate and harmonize terms currently defined in multiple individual D30 standards. The first group of terms we looked at were related to coordinate axes/systems. Upon reviewing those terms, along with the related existing defined terms within D3878, it was recognized that it would be necessary to harmonize the entire group of terms to ensure consistency, both within D3878 as well as within other D30 standards. Based upon this review, we are recommending that five existing D3878 terms be revised, and five new terms be balloted for incorporation within D3878. Once those new terms are transitioned, the intention is to remove the definitions of these terms from the individual standards.
