ASTM WK75584

New Test Method for Additive Manufacturing Non-destructive testing and evaluation of fatigue cracks using tensioned computed tomography

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research and implementation of technology through the development of standards for additive manufacturing technologies. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and other national and international organizations having mutual or related interests.


Structure Integrity; Damage Tolerance


The fatigue performance of additively manufactured parts must be well understood for the safe use of additive components in service. This standard provides a non-destructively method of studying crack formation and crack growth and increase our understanding of fatigue properties. Expected users include materials development, structural integrity, and research development.

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