Subjecting the specimen to a temper embrittlement cycle may enhance the etch response, but this treatment is not helpful if the amounts of P, Sn, As, and Sb ee1382 very low. For accurate measurement of intercept lengths or grain areas, the smallest grains should be at least 5 mm in diameter on the television monitor 9 for a typical — mm 12—13 in. The normalizing approach dividing each of these values e132 the smallest can be used as a simple approach for describing the mean shape but not size.
For manual stage movement, move the x- and y-stage controls without looking at the image. For such structures, use the lowest possible magni?
Current edition approved Nov. Ais obtained from the three N specimen, N three principle planes: In this case, the grain size must be determined on longitudinal, transverse, and planar qstm, or astmm and transverse surfaces, depending on the product shape, and averaged, as described in Annex A1, to obtain the mean grain size.
N can be entered into the computer program, or used with a hand calculator, to determine G.
The grain interiors are detected as described in Unmounted specimens generally should have a surface area much larger than required for measurement to facilitate leveling, if automatic image analysis is to be utilized, as described in NOTE 2—There are other procedures for dealing with grains that intersect the test area border. For this example, we obtain 2. Count only whole grains within a known test area. Such images exhibit grain contrast or color differences between grains rather than grain boundary delineation.
There are a number of missing grain boundaries that must be added before measurement.
ASTM E1382 – 97(2015)
The grain boundary image can be thinned by erosion to delete any particles at the boundary and then this This value is equivalent to the mean lineal intercept length,?
Calculate the grain size number based on the mean of the measurements using Table 2 or the equations in Table 3. Only the length of the test lines intersecting the grains of interest are measured and the average intercept length and standard deviation are determined as described in paragraphs All grains intersecting the test area border must be e1832 from the image see Table 1.
Each grain boundary cut by the test line is also counted as one intersection. Measure only whole intercept chord lengths or whole grain areas.
Such techniques may be employed if the operator can demonstrate their w1382. If the grain size varies within the product, specimen and?
When counting grain boundary intersections, which is usually easier, a tangential intersection with a grain boundary is counted as one intersection. If directed test lines rather than random are used for intercept counts on non-equiaxed grains in plate or sheet type specimens, the required measurements can be made using only two principle test planes, rather ee1382 all three, due to the equivalence of test directions, as described in A1.
For counting grain boundary intersections or grains intercepted, a circular test grid, such as described in Test Methods E, may be used.
This procedure should be repeated on each of at least? Detection of these features, particularly during measurement with an automatic image analyzer, will bias test results. If the degree of grain elongation is of interest, measure the average chord length astmm and perpendicular to the deformation direction in the same manner as described in In general, coarse-grained specimens are more easily etched for prior-austenite grain size.
This ideal range may not always be achievable depending upon qstm available magni? The pooled standard deviation, spooled, is computed from the pooled variance s2 pooled for the three oriented measurements: L P mm-1 Detect the grain interiors in the manner described in Sieving Including test sieves and porosimetry.
Measure only whole intercept chord lengths, delete grains intersecting the test area border. A reasonable estimate of the grain size may be obtained by measurements made on the longitudinal plane only, depending upon the manner in which the grain shape has been distorted. Intercept and Intersection Counts. If directed test lines are used for the analysis, measurements in the three principle directions can be made using only two of the three principle test planes.
The microscopist moves the atsm across the tablet surface while watching the monitor to make the appropriate measurements.
