Flexural Strength With Engineered Porosity ASTM C1674
The test method in ASTM C1674 determines the flexural strength (defined as modulus of rupture in bending) of engineered ceramic specimen components with two-dimensional multiple longitudinal hollow honeycomb-like channel architectures. Data obtained are used in product characterization and quality control of end use products.
The experimental data collected in ASTM C1674 can be utilized for product characterization, material and structural development, quality control, design data, and production/engineering specifications. Ceramics with honeycomb structures can be used as catalytic converters, combustion burner plates, high temperature filters, energy absorbers and dampers. The components produced can have varieties of geometries like cylinders, rings, rods, plates, and blocks.
The test method in ASTM C1674 uses honeycomb structured specimens with a wide range of shapes, architecture, porosity size, pitch, crush strength, and shear strength; so a single fixed geometry is not possible for flexure testing. Instead, considering the given cell size, mechanical properties, composition, and specimen limitations, a defined geometry is taken as reference with either four-point or three-point flexure testing geometries in Test A. Four-point flexures are strongly preferential for characterization and testing purposes. Test B in ASTM C1674 is recommended for cordierite and silicon carbide test specimens. These bear small cell sizes (~ 2 mm). It provides a referential baseline specimen size with advantages of reproducibility, experimental repeatability, and comparability.
The components described in ASTM C1674 in general have almost 30% porosity, bearing honeycomb cross-sectional channels of the order of 1 mm or greater. The test method is basically carried out for ceramic materials which are linear-elastic when failure is recorded with respect to the applied tension.
The values stated in ASTM C1674 are standardised by SI units. While in some places, English units are used for product definitions and tool descriptions in accordance with the cited references and as commonly referred in the US automotive industries.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
