I was facing some difficulties when performing inclusion test accordance to E45method D Normally the test sample is carbon steel. 1. I polished the test sample’s. containing inclusions and their rating. Comparison of Methods A and D Applied to a Routine Test. Method A (according to Plate I of ASTM E45)(1). Method. MSQ Inclusion Rating is designed to produce ASTM E45 Method A and Method D inclusion ratings for inclusion types A, B, C and D. The details of the standard.

Historical Version s – view c versions of standard. Although compositions are not identified, Microscopic methods place inclusions into one of several composition-related categories mmethod, oxides, and silicates—the last as a type of oxide. Only those inclusions present at the test surface can be detected. Macroscopic methods are not suitable for detecting inclusions smaller than about 0. Jethod stated in 1. These inclusions are characterized by morphological type, that is, by size, shape, concentration, and distribution, but not specifically by composition.
The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories. In case of a dispute whether an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous, microanalytical techniques such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy EDS may be used to aid in determining the nature of the inclusion.
However, experience and knowledge of the casting process and production materials, such as deoxidation, desulfurization, and inclusion shape control additives as well as refractory and furnace liner compositions must be employed with the microanalytical results to determine if an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous. The degree of sampling must be adequate for the lot size and its specific characteristics.

Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings.
Qualification criteria for assessing the data developed by these methods can be found in ASTM product standards or may be described by purchaser-producer agreements.
By agreements between producer and purchaser, these test methods may be modified to count only certain inclusion types and thicknesses, or only those inclusions above a certain severity level, or both. Also, by agreement, qualitative practices may be used where only the highest severity ratings for each inclusion type and thickness are defined or the number of fields containing these highest severity ratings are tabulated.
While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not suitable for use on cast structures or on lightly worked structures. When such steels are evaluated, the test report should describe the nature of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D.

This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests.
Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination.
In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity. Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are briefly discussed. While the methods are primarily intended for rating inclusions, constituents such as carbides, nitrides, carbonitrides, borides, and intermetallic phases may be rated using some of the microscopic methods. In some aztm, alloys other than steels may be rated using one or more of these methods; the methods will be described in terms of their use on steels.
