New Standard Terminology Relating to Nonsieving Methods of Powder Characterization

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the stimulation of research, and the development of recommended practices and general methods for characterizing solid and liquid particles. Standard specifications for apparatus and techniques required for such purposes shall be promulgated.
The Committee will coordinate related methods and specifications that are under the jurisdiction of other technical committees so as to promote uniformity in methods of particle size measurement. The Committee will also cooperate with other standardization bodies in the pursuit of national and international uniformity in standards and methods for particle size measurement.
The Committee shall be concerned with all aspects of particle size measurement.

Keywords

nonsieving methods; particle size analysis; particle size measurement; particle size; particles; particulate; powder; powder characterization; surface area

Rationale

Much confusion exists in the powder industries regarding definitions of various terms relating to the characterization of powders, particularly the terms relating to particle size. This terminology standard will attempt to reduce this confusion by defining terms in such a way that the powder industries' jargon can be understood by all involved stakeholders.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
