    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides requirements for chemical composition, mechanical properties, dimensional tolerances, the selection of test samples and test methods for solid bars and sections and for extruded round tube and hollow sections made from two grades of aluminium (unalloyed) and ten aluminium alloys in various tempers. Includes certificate of conformity, information to be supplied by the purchaser, details of the international alloy designations and chemical composition limits for wrought aluminium alloys, alloy and temper designation cross references, temper designation system and the rounding of numbers rule. Illustrates channel and lbeam dimensions for tolerance purposes, measurement of straightness, measurement of concavity and convexity of extruded sections, and measurement of twist of section.
