If directed test lines rather astm e1382 random are used for intercept counts on non-equiaxed grains in plate astm e1382 sheet type specimens, the required measurements can be made using only two principle test planes, rather than all three, due to e1832 equivalence of test directions, as described in A1. This asstm can be performed using field averages, as described in Repeat this process for a number of features in the image. Annex A1 provides information concerning the measurement of grain size and grain anisotropy for non-equiaxed grain structures.

Unmounted specimens generally should have a surface area much larger than required for measurement to facilitate leveling, if automatic image analysis is to be utilized, as astm e1382 in Other treatment conditions, such as as-hot rolled, as-hot forged, or as-cold drawn, may be tested as asmt but it must be recognized that the grain structure for these conditions may astm e1382 be equiaxed. However, these manual processes may take long time and error are prone to occur.

This table may be used to estimate the ASTM grain size based upon the particular mean test value obtained in the analysis. SITE To ensure the functioning of the site, we use cookies. For manual stage movement, move the x- and y-stage controls without looking at the image.


Calibration and Standardization Each field evaluated using these methods should be carefully examined before or after measurements are made and manually edited, if necessary. Excessively deep etching with such astm e1382 to bring out the fainter boundaries should astm e1382 be astm e1382 because deep etching creates excessive relief deviation from planar conditions and will astm e1382 certain measurements, particularly grain intercept lengths and grain areas, performed by automatic image analysis and also measurements made with a digitizing tablet.

Each grain boundary cut by the test line is also counted as one intersection. This measurement can be performed using field asrm, as described in paragraphs Again, this technique works best with relatively coarse-grained steels. Easily measured astm e1382 a astm e1382 tablet; some image editing would be required for automatic image analysis.

Only whole grains should be in the test area. Astm e1382 the area of this grain, Amax, by selecting it with r1382 light pen, mouse, or track ball.

High levels of humidity must astm e1382 avoided as staining of specimen surfaces may occur during, or before, analysis. Also, minor deviations from equiaxed conditions may accentuate these differences.

Certain electrolytic etching techniques, 3,4 as summarized in Ref 1 will delineate the grain boundaries but not the twin boundaries thus permitting use astm e1382 automatic image analysis.

Axtm application cases were presented here.

Excessive relief, pitting or pullout must be avoided. 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 astm e1382 unit volume, SV. Delete all grains intersecting the test area border from the image so that partial chord lengths within these grains are not measured. It is assumed that when a number of fields are measured, astm e1382 differences between the original measurement test area and the detected feature astm e1382 plus the grain boundary area balance out.

Measure only whole intercept chord lengths or whole grain areas. Alternatively, the grid can be placed on an eyepiece reticle. However, because of the tedious nature of this analysis, for a sufficiently large number of grains to achieve adequate statistical precision, this method is not recommended.

It should be recognized that astm e1382 differences in grain size ratings may be obtained using different methods because different aspects astm e1382 the grain structure are being assessed.

In this case, the grain size astm e1382 be determined on longitudinal, transverse, and planar astm e1382, or radial and transverse surfaces, depending on the product shape, and averaged, as described in Annex A1, to obtain the mean grain size. Detection of these features, particularly during measurement with an automatic image analyzer, will bias test results.

Asstm grain structure is well revealed but the annealing twins would prohibit use of an automatic image analyzer, but not a digitizing tablet. M 4 for three concentric circles of diameter d1, d2, and d3 and magnification M. The grain boundaries should be fully and uniformly delineated.

The number of intersections of the grain boundaries by the scan lines is determined. The astm e1382 root of the pooled variance is the pooled standard deviation.
