This test method describes the analysis of Carbon, Low-Alloy, and Free Machining Steel glow discharge atomic emission spectrometry (GD-AES). The Carbon, Low-Alloy, or Free Machining Steel specimen to be analyzed may be in the form of a disk, casting, foil, sheet, plate, extrusion or some other wrought form or shape. The elements and ranges covered in the scope by spark-AES of this method are listed below. (This list will be determined via the ILS)
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.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
