Re: need standard to test steel plates Reply by Udo Schlengermann:

The market, i.e. your customer, decides on the standards to be used for the products you want to sell.

You made reference to differnt specifications for different markets. The standards are not identical, and - to some part - are not compatible.

American Society of Testing and Materials:
ASTM E 435-01 and ASTM E 578-01 on ultrasonic testing of steel plates (thicker than 0.5 inch).

EN 10160:1999 is a European Standard for steel plates thicker than 6 mm.

SEL 072 is a former delivery specification of the German Society for Iron and Steel (VDEh).
It is obsolete and has been replaced by EN 10160.

Usually these specification can only be bought from national standards institutes or from the editing societies.
But there are also other international standards providers.

For you information look at:
World Standards Services Network: www.wsss.net,
ANSI National Resource of Global Standards: www.nssn.org,
Global Engineering Documents: www.global.ihs.com.
