I looked at trying to find the testing procedure for the listed tests but the paper I found cost $42!
    I actually majored in mechanical engineering and I've worked with some ASTM development before, and the cost of standards is absolutely ridiculous considering how little it actually seems to cost them to develop (mostly volunteer labor).

    I thought this thread might attract fellow engineers (I'm an electrical engineer).
