These test methods cover procedures and definitions for the mechanical testing of wrought and cast steel, stainless steels, and related alloys. The various mechanical tests herein described are used to determine properties required in the product specifications. Variations in testing methods are to be avoided and standard methods of testing are to be followed to obtain reproducible and comparable results. In those cases where the testing requirements for certain products are unique or at variance with these general procedures, the product specification testing requirements shall control.
This test method agrees technically with ASTM A 370-08 except for minor differences.
