Banding or orientation is best observed using low magnications, for example, to ASTM D e1.

For Astj intersections, do not count phase or constituent boundaries between like particles, grains, etc. Stereological methods are not suitable for measuring individual features, instead use standard measurement procedures to define the feature size. NOTE awtm stereological measurement methods are used to assess the degree of banding or alignment, the measurements are only made on planes parallel to the deformation direction that is, a longitudinal plane and the three-dimensional characteristics of the banding or alignment are not evaluated.

However, this degree of aetm is not excessive and is less than can be achieved by micro-analytical analysis methods. Calculate the number of interceptions per unit length parallel to the deformation axis, N Lin accordance with: Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as ast, of the standard. Randomly select the initial eld by arbitrarily moving the e12668 and accepting the new eld without further stage adjustment.

Count only phase or constituent boundary intersections between unlike particles, grains, or patches. The experimental hardenability data lists an as-quenched hardness of 58 HRC for steels with carbon contents from 0. Signicance and Use 5. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.


The total length of the grid lines astk be at least mm. Calculate the number of feature interceptions per unit length perpendicular to the deformation axis, N L’, in accordance with: Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

However, an experienced operator can distinguish between the two forms of alignment, perhaps aided by the examples in Annex A1.

If a line ends within a particle, patch or grain, count it as one half an interception. This method is only applicable to as-quenched, fully martensitic steels minor levels of retained austenite e12688 be present in higher carbon steels with carbon contents from 0. SITE To ensure the functioning of the site, we use cookies. For as-quenched hardnesses of 58—64 HRC 0.

The deformation axis in each microstructure shown is horizontal. For plate or sheet products, a planar oriented that is, polished surface parallel to the surface of the plate or sheet test specimen, at subsurface, mid-thickness, or center ast, may also be prepared and tested depending on the nature of the product application.

ASTM E1268 – 01(2016)

Count only phase or constituent boundary intersections between unlike particles, grains, or patches. The mos mostt com common mon example of banding is the layered ferrite-pearlite structure of wrought low-carbon and low-carbon alloy steels.

Etching must produce strong contrast between the phases or constituents of interest. Other examples of ast include carbide banding in hypereutectoid tool steels and martensite banding in heat-treated alloy steels.

A plot of such data on standard rectilinear graph paper reveals two linear portions with a change of slope at 58 HRC 0.

Alternatively, both phases may be aligned with neither appearing as a matrix phase. E — 01 Standard Practice for Assessing the Degree of Banding or Orientation of Microstructures1 This standard is issued under the xed designation E ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption asttm, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. The correlation coefficient is 0. There are presently no absolute guides between the measured quantitative parameters aztm the qualitative terms used to describe the microstructure.

If a line ends within a particle, patch or grain, count it as one half an interception. Align the specimen so that the deformation direction is horizontal on the projection screen.

If both phases or constituents are banded, with no obvious matrix phase, choose one of the phases constituents for counting. Equ Equiva ivalen lentt inc inch-p h-poun ound d val values ues, whe when n listed, are in parentheses and may be approximate. P’ PL’ 5 L t 3 where: For a two-phase structure, count all of the interceptions of the phase of interest, that is, those that are clearly part of the bands and those that are not.

Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the banding or alignment characteristic at specic locations. Precision and Bias Tangent hits are counted as one intersection. The degree of carbon segregation may be estimated by this method and reported for such specimens. Tangent hits are counted as one half an interception.
