GENERAL TECHNICAL DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS FOR STEEL AND STEEL PRODUCTS
0. FOREWORD

0.1 This Indian Standard was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 15 September 1978, after the draft finalized by the Wrought Steel Products Sectional Committee had been approved by the Structural and Metals Division Council.
0.2 This Indian Standard has been formulated with a view to guide the steel industry and the consumers of steel and steel products with regard to the supply conditions of these products. This will also help the industry for the selection and preparation of test samples. 0.3 In formulation of this standard, assistance has been derived from Draft International Standard ISO/DIS 404 Steel and steel products General technical delivery requirements prepared by International Organization for Standardization.

1. SCOPE 1.1 The general

2. ORDERING

2.1 The purchaser selects the type of product specifying its dimensions and characteristics as well as the grade and quality of the steel. In his choice he may be guided by the manufacturer.
*For the purpose of this Indian Standard, the concept of crude proaucts 9 covers only ingots but also blooms, billets, slabs and all products of other shapes continuously cast and intended for forming at a later stage.

5.3.1 Where, in a standard, the mechanical characteristics arc specified bv thickness categories, the thickness to be considered is the nominal thickness of the product at the required location for taking samples for mechanical tests. 5.3.2 In the absence of any spccificntinn in the order or the product standard, the mechanical characteristics 1 elate to the delivery condition of the products. 5.3.3 For certain tests (impact tests, for instance), the interpretation of the reslrlts is based on a sequential method as follows given in 5.3.3-l to 5.3.3.3. 5.3.3.1 A series of tests ( usually 3 tests ) is carried out on test pieces taken from a single sample and the results obtained shall meet the criteria specified by the prcduct standard ( arithmetic mean and ; if necessary, individual values ). 5.3.3.2 In the case of unsatisfactory results, too low a mean or an individual value below the minimum specified value, a second series of tests may be carried out, again on test pieces from the same sample. 5.3.3.3 The mean of the two series of tests shall comply with the specified mean value. With regard to the individual values of the second series of tests, the requirements of the product standard shall apply. If these conditions are not satisfied, the product is rejected and re-tests are carried out on the remainder of the acceptance unit ( see5.5.2 ). 5.4 Invalidation of Tests unsatisfactory owing to: a) faulty production the steel itself, b) faulty mounting working c) faulty -4 test is invalidated not if the results are in

to defects

of the test machine,

d) incorrect heat treatment of the sample where the guaranteed mechanical characteristics relate to a heat treatment condition from that of the delivery conditions. In each of these cases, the test shall be repeated. 5.5 Re-tests - Where one or more tests give unsatisfactory results, retests may be carried out in accordance with the fc)llowing requirements for each unsatisfactory tests, except by agreement to the contrary when ordering. The unsatisfactory result comes from an individual test ( for example, tensiie test or bend test ). 9

IS : 8910 * 1978 5.5.1 The acceptance unit is the individual product. The manufacturer may, at his discretion, retain the product as an acceptance unit, or not. If the product is retained, two new tests of the same type as the one giving an unsatisfactory result are carried out. Both new tests shall give satisfactory results. If not, the product is rejected. 5.5.2 The acceptance unit is a cast or a batch. The manufacturer may, at his discretion, retain or not retain in the acceptance unit the product from which the unsatisfactory test piece comes, except by agreement to the contrary. 5.5.2.1 If the product is withdrawn from the acceptance unit, the inspection representative once more designates, within the same acceptance Two more tests of the same type unit, two other products of his choice. are then carried out on test pieces from these two products, under the same conditions as for the first tests; both new tests shall give satisfactory results. 5.5.2.2 If the product is retained in the acceptance unit, the procedure is as indicated in 5.5.2.1, but one of the new test pieces shall be taken from the product retained in the acceptance unit; both new tests shall give satisfactory results. 5.5.2.3 If the result of a test should deviate significantly from the specified requirements for the steel type to be supplied, SO that mixed material is suspected, 5.5.2.1 and 5.5.2.2 no longer apply. In that case, a special inspection and testing procedure may be agreed between the parties. 5.5.3 The unsatisfactory result arises from a sequential method as defined in 5.3.3 ( for instance, impact test ). As indicated in 5.3.3.2 the product which has not given satisfactory results is rejected. 5.5.3.1 The procedure is as indicated in 5.5.2.1 carrying out two new series of tests on two different products from the remainder of the acceptance unit, both of which shall give satisfactory results. In that case, 5.3.3.2 no longer applies, and a second series of tests may not be carried out. 5.6 Sorting or Re-treatment - The manufacturer reserves the right to carry out sorting or re-treatment ( heat treatment or mechanical treatment, for example ) ofthe products, except by agreement to the contrary when ordering, either before or after the re-tests and to submit these products as a new acceptance unit in accordance with the provisions of 4.5 and 4.6 without prejudice to the purchaser. The manufacturer shall state to the inspection representative the method of sorting used or the treatment applied. 10

6.0 Where the order contains requirements relating to chemical composition, the results of the analysis regarding the specified elements are given, in accordance with agreement at the time of order, in one of the documents defined in 4.3.1.3(a), 4.3.1.3(b) and 4.3.2.2(b). 6.1 Selection of Samples samples is carried out in Appendix A. for Chemical accordance with Analysis Selection the procedure given of in

6.2 Cast ( Ladle ) Analysis - The cast analysis shall apply, except where otherwise indicated in the product standard or by special agreement. 6.3 Product Analysis

6.3.1 Where the product analysis is required by the product standard or the order, the sample for product analysis shall be taken from the location specified in the product standard or by special agreement. 6.3.2 Re-analysis - Where one or more analysis give unsatisfactory results, re-analysis may be carried out according to the following procedures, for each unsatisfactory analysis, except by agreement to the contrary at the time of order. 6.3.2.1 The acceptance unit is the individual product. The manufacturer may, at his discretion, retain the product as the acceptance unit, or If the product is retained, two new analysis of the same type as the not. one which has given an unsatisfactory result, are carried out. Both new analysis shall give satisfactory results. If not, the product is rejected. 6.3.2.2 The acceptance unit is a cast or a batch. The manufacturer may, at his discretion, retain or not retain in the acceptance unit the product or products from which the -msatisfactory test pieces were taken, except by agreement to the contrary. 6.3.2.3 If the product is withdrawn from the acceptance unit, the inspection representative once more designates, in the same acceptance unit, two other products of his choice. Two new analysis of same type are then carried out on samples from the two products, under the same conditions as for the first analysis; both new analysis shall give satisfactory results. 6.3.2.4 If the product is retained in the acceptance unit, the procedure is as indicated in 6.3.2.3 but one of the new samples shall be taken from the product retained in the acceptance unit; both new analysis shall give satisfactory results. 11

6.3.2.5 If the result of an ana!~-sis deviates significantly from the specified composition so that mixed material is suspected, 6.3.2.3 and 6.3.2.4 no longer apply. In that case, a tighter inspection procedure shall be agreed between the parties. 6.4 Arbitration Andysis - Arbitration analysis, if any, are carried out in 4 laboratory chosen by common agreement, inaccordance withmethods specified in the corresponding Indian Standards. 7.
