These test methods do not cover methods to characterize the nature of these distributions. Partially recrystallized wrought alloys and lightly to moderately cold-worked material may be considered as consisting of non-equiaxed grains, if a grain size measurement is necessary.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. These test methods do not cover methods to characterize the nature of these distributions. Characterization of grain size in specimens with duplex grain size distributions is described in Test Methods E Measurement of individual, very coarse grains in a fine grained matrix is described in Test Methods E Measurement of individual, very coarse grains in a fine grained matrix awtm described in Test Methods E Determination of spatial grain size, that is, measurement of the size of the three-dimensional grains in the specimen volume, is beyond the scope of these test methods.

The test methods may sstm be used for any structures having appearances similar to those of the metallic structures shown in the comparison charts. Fracture Grain Size Method.

An accurate count does require marking off of the grains as they are counted. Specimens with Non-equiaxed Grain Shapes.

Application to Special Situations. Utilization of semi-automatic digitizing tablets or automatic qstm analyzers to measure grain size is described in Test Methods E Characterization of grain size in specimens with duplex grain size distributions is described in Test Methods E Equivalent inch-pound values, when listed, are in parentheses and may be approximate.

Application to Special Situations. Active view current version of standard. Utilization of semi-automatic digitizing tablets or automatic image analyzers to measure grain size is described in Test Methods E The precision of the method is a function of the number of grains counted.

These distributions are approximately log normal. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Heyn Linear Intercept Procedure. These distributions are approximately log normal.

The intercept procedure is particularly useful for structures consisting of elongated grains see Section Fracture Grain Size Method. 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 an intercept or planimetric count e12 Section These test methods apply chiefly to single phase grain structures but they can be applied to determine the average size of a particular type of grain structure in a multiphase or multiconstituent specimen.

Heyn Linear Intercept Procedure. The three basic procedures for grain size estimation are:. Specimens with Non-equiaxed Grain Shapes. The precision of the method is a function of the number of intercepts or intersections counted.

ASTM E – 13 Standard Test Methods for Determining Average Grain Size

Equivalent inch-pound values, when listed, are in parentheses and may be approximate. Results of Interlaboratory Grain Size Determinations. For higher degrees of accuracy in determining average grain size, the intercept or planimetric procedures may be used. These test methods apply chiefly to single phase grain structures but they can be applied to determine the average size of a particular type of grain structure in a multiphase or multiconstituent specimen.

Determination of spatial grain size, that is, measurement of the size of the three-dimensional grains in the specimen volume, is beyond the scope of these test methods. These test methods may also be applied to nonmetallic materials with structures having appearances similar to those of the metallic structures shown in the comparison charts.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

These charts were constructed to reflect the typical log-normal distribution of grain sizes that result when a plane is passed through a three-dimensional array of grains.

The three basic procedures for grain size estimation are: Because they show a distribution of grain dimensions, ranging from very small to very large, depending on the relationship of the planar section and the three-dimensional array of grains, the charts are not applicable to measurement of individual grains.

Because an accurate count can be made without need of marking off intercepts or intersections, the intercept method is faster than the planimetric method for the same level of precision.
