Standard Method for CONDUCTING DROP-WEIGHT TEST TO DETERMINE NIL-DUCTILITY TRANSITION TEMPERATURE OF FERRITIC STEELS
|Publication Date:||30 October 1981|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
This method covers the determination of the nil-ductility transition (NDT) temperature offerritic steels, 5/8 in. (15.9 mm) and thicker.
This method may be used whenever the inquiry, contract, order, or specification states that the steels are subject to fracture toughness requirements as determined by the drop-weight test.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
