Drop-Weight Test for Determination of Nil-Ductility Transition Temperature: User's Experience with ASTM Method E 208

Editor(s): Holt, Puzak

STP 919 addresses the user’s experience with the drop weight test, ASTM standard E 208, which determines the nil ductility transition temperature of ferritic steels.
