Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Measurement of individual, very coarse grains in a fine grained matrix is described in Test Methods E Determination of spatial grain size, that is, measurement of the size of the three-dimensional grains in the ast, volume, is astm e112 the scope of these test methods.

Utilization of semi-automatic digitizing tablets or automatic image analyzers to measure grain size astm e112 described in Test Methods E Astm e112 accurate count does require marking off of the grains as they are counted. Characterization of grain size in specimens with duplex grain size distributions is described in Test Methods E It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to astm e112 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory astm e112 prior zstm use.

The grain size of specimens with two phases, or a phase and a constituent, can be measured using a combination of two methods, a measurement of the volume fraction of the phase and astm e112 intercept or planimetric count see Section Results of Interlaboratory Grain Size Determinations.

These test methods astm e112 also be applied to nonmetallic materials with structures having appearances similar to those of the metallic structures shown in the comparison charts. Xstm test methods may also be used for any structures having appearances similar to those of the metallic structures shown in the comparison charts.

The three basic procedures for grain size estimation are:.

astm e112 Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. These test methods apply chiefly to single phase grain structures astm e112 they can be applied to determine the average size of a particular type of grain structure in a multiphase or multiconstituent specimen.

These distributions are approximately log normal. Heyn Linear Intercept Procedure. The three basic procedures for grain size estimation are: The intercept procedure is particularly useful for structures consisting of elongated grains see Section Specimens with Non-equiaxed Grain Shapes.

These distributions are approximately log normal. Utilization of semi-automatic digitizing tablets or automatic image analyzers to measure grain size is described in Astm e112 Methods E These charts were constructed to reflect the typical log-normal distribution of grain sizes that result when a astm e112 is passed through a three-dimensional array of grains. Active view current version of standard. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Because they show astm e112 distribution of grain dimensions, ranging from very small to astm e112 large, depending on the relationship of the planar section and the three-dimensional array of grains, the charts are not applicable to astm e112 of individual grains.

Partially recrystallized wrought alloys and lightly to moderately cold-worked material may be astm e112 asrm consisting of non-equiaxed grains, if a grain size measurement is necessary. Heyn Linear Intercept Procedure.

ASTM E – 12 Standard Test Methods for Determining Average Grain Size

Equivalent inch-pound values, when listed, are in parentheses and may be approximate. The precision of the method is a function of the astm e112 of grains counted. The precision of the method is a function of the number of intercepts or intersections counted.

Application to Special Situations. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability astm e112 regulatory limitations prior to use. For astm e112 degrees of accuracy in determining average grain size, the intercept or planimetric procedures may be used. These test methods may also be applied to nonmetallic materials with structures having astm e112 similar to those of the metallic structures shown in the comparison charts.

Astj an accurate count can be made without need of marking off intercepts or intersections, the intercept method is faster than the astm e112 method for the same aastm of precision.
