About

Scope

Standardization of methods for mechanical testing, including the verification and calibration of equipment, that are used to determine the properties of metallic materials.

Excluded :

  • the responsibility for application of the method and for the results obtained.

Note:

This does not preclude product committees from developing tests appropriate to their specific materials.
