ASTM WK81518

Revision of A790/A790M-22 Standard Specification for Seamless and Welded Ferritic/Austenitic Stainless Steel Pipe


The proposed revision is to add 2 side bend tests as an alternative to the required face bend test in Section 13.3.1. Sample preparation for a face bend test for walls over 3/8" thick requires extensive machining. The side bend test option for 3/8" thick and over will also match up with side bend test requirements in ASME Section IX for weld procedure qualifications.
