ASTM WK71882

Revision of A985/A985M-19 Standard Specification for Steel Investment Castings General Requirements, for Pressure-Containing Parts

Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

Ballot 1: Add a note to Terminology: A941 controlling cross section thickness (Tc) was added for forgings and shall not apply to castings, which provide complex shapes including internal geometry (rationale is both the challenge in determining a Tc for casting and who shall be responsible for it; also casting standards already use casting ruling section T). Ballot 2: Update mechanical testing: a. For consistency and conciseness, add note 1 from A781 to explain text bar relationship. b. For consistency and conciseness, revise sampling, mechanical testing and charpy testing.
