ASTM WK75055

    Revision of E18 - 20 Standard Test Methods for Rockwell Hardness of Metallic Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E18 - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: E28.06 | Committee E28 | Contact Staff Manager

    Rationale

    Correct the terminology section. The terminology section of E18 is not differentiated into Terms and Terms specific to this standard. Some of the terms in the terminology section have no application outside of E18, and therefore belong under the heading Terms specific to this standard. By the Form and Style Manual and the E28 bylaws, any term in the main Terminology section is adopted editorially into E6, the terminology standard, but some of the existing definitions also disagree with the definitions already in E6. This work item will partition the current terms into Terms and Terms specific to this standard as appropriate and ensure that the terms are also used in the body of the standard as defined in the terminology section. The intent of this work item is that it will not take effect until a technical change is also made to E18, so that this terminology correction will not create a new version of E18 by itself.
