This meeting will occur Sunday prior to INGSM – 21 at the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile.

ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards developing organizations in the world. It is a not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for the development and publication of international voluntary consensus standards for materials, products, systems and services.

The scope of the ASTM D02.F0 subcommittee is the promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research and the development and maintenance of standard test methods, guides, specifications and nomenclature for Manufactured Carbon and Graphite Products exclusive of those assigned to other ASTM committees.

Recently developed standards include:

  • D8075 – Standard Guide for Categorization of Microstructural and Microtextural Features Observed in Optical Micrographs of Graphite
  • ASTM – D8091 Standard Guide for Impregnation of Graphite with Molten Salt
  • ASTM – D8255 Standard Guide for Work of Fracture Measurements on Small Nuclear Graphite Specimens
  • ASTM D8186 – Standard Test Method for Measurement of Impurities in Graphite by Electrothermal Vaporization Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ETV-ICP OES)

The subcommittee includes members from graphite and carbon manufacturers, testing labs, equipment suppliers, research scientists, academics, nuclear power plant licensees and nuclear reactor designers and regulators. Anyone interested in the field covered by the subcommittee’s scope is eligible to become a committee member or attend the meetings.

The ASTM D02.F subcommittee will be holding a 1-day meeting before the INGSM to give graphite specialists the opportunity to find out more about the ASTM activities, have a say on the current technical challenges addressed by the subcommittee and be involved more in future standards development.
