For such structures, use the lowest possible magni? Measure areas of whole grains only. Grains intersecting the test area border must be deleted. The average number of intercepts or intersections should be aboutwith a minimum of 70 and a maximum of unless the grain size is too coarse. No restrictions except for the diameter of a circular test grid; the number of grains per?
Nuclear fissile materials, see Again, if each directed P intercept value and the mean value,? If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.
If this cannot be done, count every other triple point intersection twice. Then calculate the mean lineal intercept,? Anisotropy indexes for the two perpendicular test orientations on the transverse and planar surfaces revealed values of 0. This is easily performed, without producing bias, if enlargements are used. The grain interiors are detected as described in Determine the average enlargement factor of the measured features and multiply this value by the magni?
Repeat this process for a number of features in the image. Prices subject to wstm without notice. The cementite grain boundary? Calculation of Results Automatic Image Analysis Hence, there are three pairs of statistically identical oriented test lines for intersection or intercept counts: A is the number of grains per unit area. If each P to a mean lineal intercept length using Eq 5, and the mean?
Some boundaries are light while others are missing. Guidelines and recommended practices are given in Practice E3.
A very high degree of grain boundary delineation is required. 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. The pooled standard deviation, spooled, is computed from the pooled variance s2 pooled for the three oriented measurements: If the anisotropy index, or other descriptions of the grain shape, was determined see Annex A1report the value s for the plane or planes, or directions evaluated.
A N Grain Size No.
ASTM E1382 – 97(2015)
Note that of the three principle planes, that is, A? Measure only whole intercept lengths, ignore intercepts that end within a grain.
If the grain size varies within the product, specimen and? Excessively deep etching with such etchants to bring out the fainter boundaries should not be done because deep etching creates excessive relief deviation from planar conditions and will bias certain measurements, particularly grain intercept lengths and grain areas, performed by automatic image analysis and also measurements made with a digitizing tablet.
When using an eyepiece reticle, use of a single test circle, of diameter ast
Specimens must be carefully cleaned and dried after polishing. In this case, the average number of intercepts or intersections should be at least 25 per circle. If a programmable stage is available, set the stage controls to sample the image in a systematic manner. This image can be inverted reverse detected and non-detected pixels to produce the grain boundaries within the measurement? The grain elongation ratio, or anisotropy index, AI, is de? Certain electrolytic etching techniques, 3,4 as summarized in Ref 1 will delineate the grain boundaries but not the twin boundaries thus permitting use of automatic image analysis.
The best possible sequence of specimen preparation and etching should be used before relying upon video techniques to further improve the image prior to detection.
