ASTM WK80077

Revision of A320/A320M-21a Standard Specification for Alloy-Steel and Stainless Steel Bolting for Low-Temperature Service


Section 6.2.3 of ASTM A320 contains the location requirements for charpy impact specimens. These requirements do not align with the, more restrictive, tensile specimen location requirements of A370. This work item is looking to update the verbiage of section 6.2.3 to maintain the current minimum location requirements while also allowing flexibility to align with the more restrictive A370 tensile location requirements, at the manufacturer's discretion.
