ASTM WK87763

Revision of A350/A350M-23 Standard Specification for Carbon and Low-Alloy Steel Forgings, Requiring Notch Toughness Testing for Piping Components


The ASME BPVC Section II Materials Committee requests that the ASTM A01 Committee look at A350 para. 7.2.1 and consider what the intent was in regards to impact test temperature deviations from the Table 4 requirements. A350 7.2.1 allows for impact tests at temperatures different from those in Table 4 but is lacking clarity in the requirements of S1. A revision to 7.2.1 in conjunction with S1 is required to clarify the intent of the clause.
