Specifications for steel products as well as the methods of testing and inspecting steel products are entrusted by the American Society for Testing Materials to Committee A-1. This is the oldest and one of the largest technical committees of the Society. The work of the committee is, in turn, delegated to a number of subcommittees covering various products such as sheet, plate, pipe, bars, etc. Steel forgings are the responsibility of Sub-Committee VI. The current yearbook of the Society indicates that Sub-Committee VI has 65 members. This paper covers the activities of Sub-Committee-VI Task Force on Brittle Failure of Steel Forgings.
