ASTM E561 Determination of Resistance to Fracturing of Metallic Materials by R-curves
ASTM E561 test method uses different specimens such as the middle-cracked tension specimen or the compact tension specimen to determine the fracture enduring and resisting capabilities of the metallic materials by plotting the KRCurve against the increasing stress intensity factor, K. The final results are expressed in SI units.
ASTM E561 test method determines the crack extension values of the materials by a careful study of the KRCurve. The yield strength and toughness of the materials are adjusted. Slow crack extension resulting from the growth of plastic zones in the presence of a progressing crack driving force contributes to the toughness and reliability of the materials. The specimen thickness, temperature, and strain rates are determined. This helps detect the instability and crack behavior of the material.
In ASTM E561, a testing machine with grip fixtures is used to distribute the stress uniformly. Displacement gauges are installed to measure the crack-mouth opening displacement. The thickness and width of the specimen are measured. The specimens are pre-cracked and aligned in the testing machine to get rid of misalignment and eccentricity. The rate of crack extension is increased through the application of force and displacement. Crack size and K values are determined. Direct measurement and compliance measurement techniques are applied to determine the elasticity of the specimen. Data recording equipment is used for an accurate record of force and displacement.
For ASTM E561 testing, the specimen size should be as required, within the desired range of radius 0.08 mm. The fatigue pre-crack shall extend from the starter notch by 1.3 mm length.
In ASTM E561 testing, the initial crack size ao in the specimens is recorded between 0.35 and 0.55W. The KR Value is calculated based on adequate crack size where P stands for applied force, B stands for specimen thickness, W is the width of the specimen, and α is the crack size.

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 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions 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.
