Hardenability studies have demonstrated this relationship for fully martensitic microstructures in steels rapidly quenched from the prescribed austenitizing temperatures. Decide which phase or constituent is banded. Astmm length of full cross-section samples, in the deformation direction, should be at least 10 mm 0. The test grid is placed over the image projected onto the digitizing tablet and a cursor is used for counting. Stereological methods are not suitable for measuring individual features, instead use standard measurement procedures to dene the feature size.
If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below. The microindentation hardness method may be used for such structures.

A minimum of ve measurements in each direction, generally more, were made on each micrograph by one or more persons. For small segregates, it may not be possible to obtain ve or more hardness tests values. If the section size is too large to permit full cross sectioning, samples should be taken at standard locations, for example, subsurface, mid-radius or quarter-pointand center, or at specic locations based upon producer-purchaser agreements.
Etching must produce strong contrast between the phases or constituents of interest. NOTE 2—Measurements made on the martensite. Calculation of Results The microindentation hardness test procedure should only be used to determine the difference in hardness in banded heat-treated metals, chiefly steels.
This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. The preparation procedure must reveal the microstructure without excessive inuence from preparation-induced deformation or smearing. When a test line is tangent to the particle, grain, or patch of interest, Aetm is counted as 12and P as 1.
Both the matrix and the segregates must be fully aetm except for normal minor amounts of retained austenite and in the as-quenched condition.
If both phases or constituents are banded, with no obvious matrix phase, choose one of the phases constituents for counting. The microindentation hardness test procedure should only be used to determine the difference in hardness in banded heat-treated metals, chiey steels. Each microstructure has been qualitatively described in accordance with the scheme outlined in Fig. Do not count phase or constituent boundaries between like particles, grains, or patches.
All of the measurements were made using 23 enlargements of the photomicrographs presented.

Nwith the test lines in the same way as described in Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the banding or alignment characteristic at specic locations.
There are presently no absolute guides between the measured quantitative parameters and the qualitative terms used to describe the microstructure. Calculate the number of boundary intersections per unit length perpendicular to the deformation axis, PL’, in accordance with: Referenc Referenced ed Documents 1.

Either NL or PL, or both see If both phases or constituents are banded, with no obvious matrix phase, choose one of the phases constituents for counting. The total length of the grid lines should be at least mm.
Etching must produce strong contrast between the phases or constituents of interest. Conversion of HK values to HRC or other scales may involve considerable error particularly for test loads below gf. The most common example of banding is the layered ferrite-pearlite structure of wrought low-carbon and low-carbon alloy steels.
Determine the nature of the banding present, for example, light versus dark etching martensite or bainite versus martensite. The Knoop microindentation hardnesses gf for matrix and segregate are converted to HRC values Eq 1 and Eq 3 of Annex A2 and the carbon contents are estimated using Eq 2 or Eq 4 Annex A2depending on the hardness level.
