ASTM - C1256
Standard Practice for Interpreting Glass Fracture Surface Features
|Publication Date:||15 December 1993|
|ICS Code (Glass in building):||81.040.20|
Fracture features on the surface of a crack reflect the nature and course of the fracture event associated with the breakage of a glass object. This practice is a guide to the identification and interpretation of these fracture surface features.
The practice describes the various fracture surface features as to their appearance, the process of formation and their significance.
The practice does not provide the procedural information necessary for a complete fractographic analysis. Such information is available in the general literature. (See Glossary for suggested literature).
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
