Effective Boron-10 Areal Density in Aluminum Neutron Absorbers quantitatively using Neutron Attenuation Measurements is determined by ASTM E2971-16. This test is usually carried out in a laboratory. The values expressed in SI units should be considered standard.
The ASTM E2971-16 standard is used to quantify the 10B areal density of aluminium neutron absorber materials used in systems to manage criticality. Containers for transferring and transporting nuclear fuel, spent nuclear fuel pools, spent nuclear fuel dry storage canisters, and new nuclear fuel transport containers. This standard is expected to be used by designers, suppliers, neutron absorber users, testing labs, and nuclear criticality analysts.
In ASTM E2971-16, aluminum neutrons are placed in a thermal neutron beam and the number of neutrons transmitted through the material is counted. The neutron count is translated into 10B areal density. The neutron energy spectrum is thermalized. Other methods, such as neutron diffraction, are used to generate a thermal neutron beam
The 10B areal density, the number, and 10B areal density of the calibration standards used, the facility and apparatus used, and the calculation method used should all be included in the final result of ASTM E2971-16.
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.
