ASTM International Workshop on Evaluation of Ductile-to-Brittle Transition Toughness of Inhomogeneous Materials
Press release date: July 26, 2010
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-A workshop on Evaluation of Ductile-to-Brittle Transition Toughness of Inhomogeneous Materials will be held on Nov. 17, 2010, at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas. The workshop is sponsored by ASTM International Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, and will be held in conjunction with the Nov. 15-18 standards development meetings of the committee.
The objective of the workshop is to present information to support the specific acceptance criteria and requirements for standardizing the treatment of material inhomogeneity with ASTM E1921, Test Method for Determination of Reference Temperature, To, for Ferritic Steels in the Transition Range. Additionally, presentations on evaluating material inhomogeneity using the master curve approach will be sought. Several weeks after the workshop, the presentations will be posted on the ASTM Committee E08 Web page as the technical basis supporting a planned revision of E1921 to address material inhomogeneity.
Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes Nov. 10. The fee for ASTM members and non-members is $50 USD for online registration and $75 USD for on-site registration. The fee is waived for presenters and students with a valid I.D.
