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.
atomic emission spectrometry; GD-AES; glow discharge; low-alloy steel; free machining steel; carbon steel
Currently, there is no standard test method for the analysis of Carbon, Low-Alloy, and Free Machining Steel by Glow Discharge Atomic Emission Spectrometry. The users of these tools have requested such a method.
