Cast Test Bars Allowance may be made forreasonable pattern draft within the tolerances shown in Table 4. Test bars A, B, and C are all standard test bars in the form ofsimple cylinders. Test bar S is special and is intended for usewhere the standard bars are not satisfactory. The average grain size of thesand shall approximate that of the sand in which the castingsare poured. Molds for the test bars shall be approximately atroom temperature when poured.
