This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Carbon multiplying factor 5 0. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

ASTM A255 Jominy Hardenability Testing

An anvil providing a means astn very accurately measuring the distance from the quenched end is essential. The variations between spacings should be even smaller.

A facsimile of the standard ASTM hardenability chart3 on which typical hardenability curves have been plotted is shown in Fig. Hardness data is given in cert format with actual curve of material being tested.

Then place the heated specimen in the support so that its bottom face is 0. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. For x255 statements regarding the use of test blocks and surface conditions, reference should be made to 4. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

ASTM A – Standard Test Methods for Determining Hardenability of Steel

Normalizing may be waived by agreement between the supplier and the user. It is important to heat the specimen in such an atmosphere that practically no scaling and a minimum of decarburization takes place. In the end-quench test the depth of hardening is the distance along the specimen from the quenched end which correlates to a given hardness level.


It is astm a quantitatively, usually by noting the extent or depth of hardening of a standard size and shape of test specimen in a standardized astm a Examples of this method are J 4? It is astm a responsibility of the user of this standard astm a establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

These curves give High and Low values which material should fall into. A satisfactory type of support for the standard 1. Users of this standard are expressly ast, that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.


The astm a given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. For readings to 8? If the retest also has greater than 4 HRC points spread, a new adtm should be tested. You can a25 and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. If negotiated between the supplier and the user, the end-quench specimen may be prepared from a given location in a forged or rolled product or from a continuous cast billet.

Rockwell or Superficial Hardness.

The two test methods include the quantitative end-quench or Jominy Test and a method for calculating the hardenability of steel from the chemical composition based on the original work by M. After the quench, warm the assembly in boiling water to melt the Woods metal and remove the specimen. Active view current version of standard. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. In cases of lack a525 reproducibility or of differences between laboratories, indenter spacing should be measured immediately.


The values given in parentheses are for information only. It is recommended that a test block be interposed asttm the specimen and the indenter to check the seating of the indenter and the specimen simultaneously. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. The sample shall be held at the temperature listed in Table 1 for 1 h and cooled in air. Originally published as Ast, — Tempering of the normalized sample to improve machinability is permitted.

In production testing slightly longer times up to 35 min may be used without appreciably affecting results. The time between removal of the specimen xstm the furnace and the beginning of the quench should not be more than 5 s.

They should be mutually parallel and 3 the grinding done in such a manner that no change of the asm structure takes place. As the voice of the U. Then make Rockwell hardness measurements on the C scale on the specimen as prescribed in 6.
