|Publication Date:||1 December 2018|
|ICS Code (Particle size analysis. Sieving):||19.120|
These test methods describe simple manual procedures for measuring the size of the largest grain cross-section observed on a metallographically prepared plane section.
These test methods shall only be valid for microstructures containing outlier coarse grains, where their population is too sparse for grain size determination by Test Methods E112.
