ASTM A370: Definitions for mechanical Testing of Steel Products
These test methods cover procedures and definitions for the mechanical testing of wrought and cast steels, stainless steels, and related alloys.
The various mechanical tests herein described are used to determine properties required in the product specifications
. Variations in testing methods are to be avoided, and standard methods of testing are to be followed to obtain reproducible and comparable results. In those cases in which the testing requirements for certain products are unique or at variance with these general procedures, the product specification testing requirements shall control.The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
Attention is directed to ISO/IEC 17025 and E 1595 when there may be a need for information on criteria for evaluation of testing laboratories.
ISO 6892:1998, ISO 7438:2005 are equivalent to this standard.
