Description of ASTM-A341/A341M 2016
1.1 This test method provides dc permeameter tests for the basic magnetic properties of soft magnetic materials in the form of bars, rods, wire, or strip specimens which may be cut, machined, or ground from cast, compacted, sintered, forged, extruded, rolled, or other fabricated materials. It includes tests for determination of the normal induction under symmetrically cyclically magnetized (SCM) conditions and the hysteresis loop (B-H loop) taken under conditions of rapidly changing or steep wavefront reversals of the direct current magnetic field strength. This method has been historically referred to as the ballistic test method. For testing hard or permanent magnet materials, Test Method shall be used.
1.2 This test method shall be used in conjunction with Practice .
1.3 This test method covers a range of magnetic field strength in the specimen from about 0.05 Oe [4 A/m] up to above 5000 Oe [400 kA/m] through the use of several permeameters. The separate permeameters cover this test region in several overlapping ranges.
1.4 Normal induction and hysteresis properties may be determined over the magnetic flux density range from essentially zero to the saturation induction for most materials.
1.5 Recommendations of the useful magnetic field strength range for each of the permeameters are shown in . Permeameters particularly well suited for general testing of soft magnetic materials are shown in boldface. Also, see Sections and for general limitations relative to the use of permeameters.
(A) Although the permeameters are capable of being used at the lower end of the measurement range, the measurement accuracy is reduced.
(B) I—magnetizing current; HC—fixed H coil; FC—flip coil; HP—Hall probe; RCC —Rogowski-Chattock coil.
(C) Fahy permeameters require a standard of known magnetic properties for calibration of the H coil.
(D) The boldface numbers in parentheses refer to a list of references at the end of this standard.
1.6 The symbols and abbreviated definitions used in this test method appear with and in appropriate sections of this document. For the official definitions, see Terminology . Note that the term magnetic flux density used in this document is synonymous with the term magnetic induction.
1.7 Warning—Mercury has been designated by EPA and many state agencies as a hazardous material that can cause central nervous system, kidney, and liver damage. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury-containing products. See the applicable product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for details and EPA’s website (http://www.epa.gov/mercury/faq.htm ) for additional information. Users should be aware that selling mercury or mercury-containing products, or both, in your state may be prohibited by state law.
1.8 The values and equations stated in customary (cgs-emu and inch-pound) or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within this standard, SI units are shown in brackets except for the sections concerning calculations where there are separate sections for the respective unit systems. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this standard.
1.9 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.
