ASTM F3122 - 14 - Standard Guide for Evaluating Mechanical Properties of Metal Materials Made via Additive Manufacturing Processes
Essential maintenance work will be carried out on BSI Shop over the weekend of 12 and 13 June 2021. BSI Shop will be operational during this time but you might experience slowness for a very brief period of time. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

ASTM F3122 - 14

Standard Guide for Evaluating Mechanical Properties of Metal Materials Made via Additive Manufacturing Processes

Status : Current   Published : January 2014



1.1 This standard serves as a guide to existing standards or variations of existing standards that may be applicable to determine specific mechanical properties of materials made with an additive manufacturing process.

1.2 As noted in many of these referenced standards, there are several factors that may influence the reported properties, including material, material anisotropy, method of material preparation, porosity, method of specimen preparation, testing environment, specimen alignment and gripping, testing speed, and testing temperature. These factors should be recorded, to the extent that they are known, according to Practice F2971 and the guidelines of the referenced standards.

1.3 The following standards are not referred to directly in the guide but also have information that may be useful in the testing of metal test specimens made via additive manufacturing: A370, A1058, B211, B348, B557, B565, B724, B769, E3, E6, E7, E290, E467, E468, E837, E915, E1049, E1823, E1942.

1.4  Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
