ASTM WK75054

    Revision of B909 - 17 Standard Guide for Plane Strain Fracture Toughness Testing of Non-Stress Relieved Aluminum Products

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B909 - 21

    Developed by Subcommittee: B07.05 | Committee B07 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK75054


    Keywords

    aluminum; aluminum alloys; aluminum products; fracture toughness; residual stress;;

    Rationale

    The correction procedure within B909 can give incorrect results in some circumstances. However, the remainder of the document provides a range of useful indicators of and methods to manage residual stress effects in E399 test specimens and data. This ballot item removes the correction procedure until such time that alternate procedures are developed and revises the remaining text in several places.
