The test specimens shall be made to the dimensions shown in Fig. Asrm average impact energy shall meet the requirement of Table 1. Addition of alloying elements when not required does not enchance the properties of ADI and merely adds to the cost of the iron. It also depends on the capabilities of the speci?

Warning— Achieving the required mechanical properties and austempered microstructure in the smaller cross sections of a premachined test bar does not ensure the correct response in the heavier sections of actual parts, as explained in X1.

Increased hardenability is only required to avoid the formation of pearlite during quenching. The heat treat process, austempering, was developed with the intent of improving on the strength and toughness of ferrous alloys. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.

However, this composition is a typical, industrially successful ADI composition. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. We deal strictly in the sourcing of castings and machined castings. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the speci?


The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the atm technical committee and must be reviewed every? When separately cast test coupons are used, selection shall be as outlined in Any of the aforementioned nonconforming conditions will reduce the toughness of an ADI component, even if adequate for conventional ductile iron.

The composition reported herein does not guarantee ADI properties, nor is it mandatory. The microstructure is uniformly formed with aus-ferrite and graphite nodules.

Another benefit of designing with ADI is the improved abrasion resistance properties.

ASTM AAM – Applied Process

This does not prevent an agreement wherein any one manufacturer in the chain of sequential operations can agree to assume full responsibility for all quality and inspection requirements. Lot size can be de? ADI is also a good conductor of heat and a better damper of vibration than steel 1. Single user license only. Floor, manual, squeezer, cope and drag, Hunter, Sinto and Disa molding processes.

This can be done by sectioning a casting, examining the microstructure in that section, and then comparing the results with that of x897 premachined test bar that has been austempered in the same furnace load.

ASTM A897-A897M-16

Current edition approved Feb. Excessively high levels of Si can suppress ausferrite in localized areas by stabilizing ferrite. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. ADI offers one of the best combinations when it comes to lower costs, design flexibility, machinability and strength-to-weight ratio.

The purchaser should establish by contract agreement, at the time asstm ordering, the responsibility of the various parties for meeting the specification requirements.

ASTM A is an alloyed nodular iron which is heat treated to achieve the desired properties. Lower temperature quench would give it a higher strength with abrasion resistance.

Proper molding control will minimize surface defects and other sub-surface discontinuities.

Requirements for the microstructure constituents such as graphite, ausferrite acicular ferrite and high carbon, stable austenitepearlite, and martensite are prescribed. Dimensions shall conform to drawings or patterns supplied by the purchaser.

Impact Test Specimens ADI Design Benefits Heat treating ADI involves a complicated quenching process in a liquid salt solution that is kept at a strictly controlled temperature.
