It is desirable that two of the specimens will have values of cleavage fracture above the value of n, and two will have values below this level. Materials shall be produced primarily by either electric-furnace, basic oxygen, vacuum-induction VIMor open-hearth melting process.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The longitudinal axis of the specimen shall be parallel to the length of the hub, as shown in Fig. Siddhagiri Metals and Tubes Rating: Forgings of large size are commonly used by industrial equipment and machinery such as steel, textile, paper, power generation and transmission, chemical and refinery industries.

This shall consist of two impact specimens from a location adjacent to and on either side of the specimen that failed. This table is applicable only for those elements for which product analysis variations are permitted by the material speci? The primary melting may incorporate separate degassing or re?

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Details of heat and product analyses for the evaluation of chemical composition are thoroughly discussed with the expertise. Dimensions and Finish Fracture Toughness Test S7. Steel shall be forged by any of these three classes based on forging temperature: Any straightening performed before heat treatment for properties atm not require an intermediate stress-relief heat treatment.

This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every? Such treatments are intended to simulate post-weld or other treatments to which the forgings will be subjected during subsequent fabrication.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Sequential or Continuous Strand Casting S3.

The resultant chemical analysis of each zone shall conform to the requirements of the product speci? The chemical composition thus determined shall conform to the requirements of the product speci? The upper shelf energy level is de? Cast shapes produced by a continuous casting process, without subsequent work, are considered to be ingots for the purposes of this speci? Examples for several elements shown below: Level A P S Heat 0.

The bar coding system, if applied at the discretion of the supplier, should be consistent with one of published industry standards for bar coding. Each of the retested specimens must exhibit an energy value equal to or greater than the minimum average value required by the product speci? For this purpose, a back re? It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and x788 practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This zstm is forged through various process depending upon the temperature at which it is done.

Rough Machining and Boring S Supplementary Requirement S4 concerns a specialized heat treat process see 3. In order for primary deoxidation to occur during vacuum treatment, deoxidizing agents such as aluminum or silicon are not to be added to the melt in any signi? The listed variation value is subtracted from the minimum speci? The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

Originally approved in Liquid Penetrant Examination S The number, orientation and location of the tests shall be speci? This standard has been approved for use by x788 of the Department of Defense.


In modern times, industrial forging is done either with presses or with hammers powered by compressed air, electricity, hydraulics or steam. After forging, specimens shall be allowed to cool prior to reheating for heat treatment. The capacity of the system must also asmt sufficiently high to reduce the initial surge pressure at the start of the pour to a low level within 2 min. The heat analysis of the remelted ingot shall be represented by a weighted average see Annex A2 of the individual chemical analyses for each zone.

The molten wstm shall be adequately stirred for a sufficient length of time to maximize exposure to the evacuated atmosphere. Required information including test temperature, conditioning, environment, and acceptance criteria shall be provided as necessary. Your xstm will receive careful consideration astn a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

ASTM A / AM – 10 Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, General Requirements

If the choice of test track is not made in the ordering information then the default ASTM track shall be used as noted in Test Methods A The penetrant system to be used shall be agreed upon between the manufacturer and purchaser.

Traditionally, forging q788 performed by a smith using hammer and anvil, though introducing water power in the production and working of iron in the 12th century which allowed the use of large trip hammers or power hammers that exponentially increased the amount and size of iron that could be produced and forged easily.

Vacuum Carbon Deoxidation S9. The evacuation system shall be capable of reducing the pressure surges, which occur each time a new portion of steel is admitted to the vessel to increasingly lower levels, until a blank-off pressure usually less than ?
