New Test Method for Determination of Hydrogen in Iron, Steel, Nickel, and Cobalt alloys by Hot Extraction

1. Scope

To prepare, evaluate, and issue test methods, practices, guides, and terminology for chemical and spectrochemical analysis as they apply to sampling and testing of metals, ores, and related materials; other practices including interlaboratory testing and statistical evaluation; physical testing of refractories and liaison with other ASTM Committees, especially those which write specifications.
The Committee shall promote knowledge and stimulate research in analytical chemistry for metals, ores, and related materials. The work of the Committee shall be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interests.


hydrogen; thermal conductivity; hot extraction; iron; steel; nickel alloys; cobalt alloys


Determined need for a test method for determining hydrogen in steel materials. The users of this test method will be steel manufacturers and testing facilities.

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