HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL

Table I—lists the ASTM test methods alphanumerically by ASTM designation. If you know the ASTM designation, this is the

easiest way to find what you need.

Table of Contents—lists the ASTM test methods by their principle subject matter. In many cases, the citation may be replicated

in this table because of multiple key words involved. If you do not know the ASTM test method designation, then look in this

table to find the test method by subject matter.
