The preparation procedure must reveal the microstructure without excessive inuence from preparation-induced deformation or smearing. Align the specimen so that the deformation direction is horizontal on the projection screen. The Knoop indenter is particularly well suited for this work.

Both the matrix and the segregates must be fully martensitic except for normal minor amounts of retained austenite and in the as-quenched condition. For fully martensitic sit ic car carbo bon n an and d al allo loy y ste steel elss 0 0.

For small segregates, it may not be possible to obtain ve or more hardness tests values. This method is applicable only to steels with carbon contents from 0. The grid should be placed without operator bias. The grid used for these measurements consisted of eight parallel lines, spaced 20 mm 0.

Do not count phase or constituent boundaries between like particles, grains, or patches. The degree of carbon segregation may be estimated by this method and reported for such specimens.

Randomly select the initial eld by arbitrarily moving the stage and accepting the new eld without asmt stage adjustment.

The anisotropy index for a randomly oriented, non-banded microstructure is one.

The degree of orientation can vary from zero completely random distribution to 1. P’ PL’ 5 L wstm 3 where: Calculate the number of feature interceptions per unit length perpendicular to the deformation axis, N L’, in accordance with: Other examples of banding include carbide banding in hypereutectoid tool steels and martensite banding in heat-treated alloy steels. Both the matrix and the segregates must be fully martensitic except for normal minor amounts of retained austenite and in the as-quenched condition.

NOTE 2—T indicates a tangent hit and E indicates that the grid line ended within the particle; both situations are handled as shown.

As the degree of orientation or banding increases, the anisotropy index increases above one. This requires a measurement of the volume fraction, VV, of the banded or oriented phase constituent by point counting see Practice E or other suitable methods. The accuracy of this conversion will become poorer as the test load decreases below gf. Tangent hits are counted as one half an interception. For plate or sheet products, a planar oriented that is, polished surface parallel to the surface of the plate or sheet test specimen, at subsurface, mid-thickness, or center locations, may also be prepared and tested depending on the nature of the product application.


This method is only applicable to as-quenched, fully martensitic steels minor levels of retained austenite will be present in higher carbon steels with carbon contents from 0.

Calculation of Results Each microstructure has been qualitatively described in accordance with the scheme e268 in Fig. Ori Origin ginall ally y approved in For isolated particles in a matrix, the number of feature intersections will equal twice the number of feature interceptions.

Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting e12668 the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. When a test line is tangent to the particle, grain, or patch of interest, N is counted as 12and P as 1.

The equations given in Annex A2 may be helpful for such conversions. P Intersections—Count the number of unlike phase boundaries or constituent boundariesA crossed by the grid lines.
