ASTM A-540 requires the mechanical tests to be conducted in accordance with the Methods and Definitions in A-370. Para 11.2 of A-370 allows the use of proportional small sized specimens as shown in the noted figure. When A-540 production pieces are too small to yield a standard sized specimen, are the proportional small sized specimens prohibited in A-540 or A-370?
