New Test Method for Electrical Conductivity Test for Verification of Heat Treatment of Aluminum Alloys Using The Eddy Current Method

1. Scope

This standard contains procedures for verifying aluminum alloy heat treatment by means of eddy current techniques, which measure electrical conductivity. Aluminum alloy heat treatment can be verified when electrical conductivity measurements are used in conjunction with hardness measurements.


aluminum, heat treat, electrical conductivity, eddy current


This is a conversion of MIL-STD-1537. This supports ongoing efforts to convert MIL-STDs into industry approved standards when applicable.

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