Methods based on the mean intercept length or the number of grain boundary intersections per unit length are directly related to the grain boundary surface area per unit volume, SV. If a digitizing tablet is utilized for the measurements, illumination modes other than bright?
Moderate image editing is required. Current edition approved Nov. 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 mean lineal intercept length,? Depending on the method used, a mean value of the particular microstructural feature is determined which can be used to calculate, or estimate, the ASTM grain size number, G.
The cementite grain boundary? In practice, it is equations for P generally easier to make P counts intersections of test lines with grain boundaries than N counts interceptions of test e11382 with grains. The presence of twin boundaries can be tolerated when semiautomatic digitizing tablets are utilized but measurement errors are more likely to occur.
No restrictions as long as the?
ASTM E1382 – 97(2015)
The square root of the pooled variance is the pooled standard deviation. L value is converted grain size was found to be These equations measured parameters: For such structures, e182 the lowest possible magni?
Some boundaries are light while others are missing. L values are handled in the same way as P mens. Methods based on the average grain area or the number of grains per unit area are directly related to r1382 total length of grain edges per unit volume, LV.
The computed ASTM grain sizes are 9. When working with a new alloy composition or a new etchant, it may be helpful to measure the grain size as a function of etch time, or other experimental conditions, to develop a reliable practice 10 that agrees with manual determination of the grain size in accordance with Test Methods E This adtm can be easily measured with a digitizing tablet but substantial image editing would be required for automatic image analysis.
If the grain size distribution is duplex, the grain size within Divide each area, Ai, by the magni? L, or the mean grain boundary intersections per unit length, P?
However, to eliminate grain anisotropy effects non-equiaxed grainseither the image should be rotated w1382 a prism to rotate the live image, or the digitized image can be rotated in memory, or scan lines of several orientations may be used, depending upon the capabilities of the image analyzer used.
Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. Sampling location and frequency should be based upon agreements between manufacturers and users.
Each grain boundary cut by the test line is also counted as one intersection. 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.
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.
NOTE 2—There are other procedures for dealing with grains that intersect the test area border. If each P to a mean lineal intercept length using Eq 5, and the mean? The etch delineation is too poor for accurate measurement. Al or A non-equiaxed specimen can be made from N from grain count or grain area measurements on the longitudinal plane alone, or the plane parallel to the grain elongation axis.
Repeat this process for a number of features in the image.
In such cases, the grain size must be measured on the three principal planes and averaged as described in Annex A1. This determine the average grain area of the a phase, A measurement can be performed using? In this case, the average number of intercepts or intersections should be at least 25 per circle.
The standard deviations for the measurements on each speci? A value is converted to an average nearest tenth unit. Annex A1 describes methods for measuring the grain size of non-equiaxed structures and for evaluating the degree of grain shape anisotropy. Calculate the grain size number based on the mean of the measurements using Table 2 or the equations in S1382 3. ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.
Grain boundary delineation is inadequate for automatic image zstm without extensive editing. Avoid an excessively high number of e182 per photograph as counting accuracy may be impaired. If you feel that your comments have not received xstm fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.
