The federal government, responding to the pressing need for standards in many industries, established the National Bureau of Standards NBS in Many steel mills and cement plants that had traditionally supplied commercial materials now geared up for military production—foreign territory to most civilian manufacturers. Existing ASTM standards also played an important role in the creation of an industrial base that was necessary to sustain the war effort. Dudley soon realized that he had taken on a formidable task. Several ASTM technical committees provided vital testing and materials specifications to support these efforts.
First introduced after World War I, radiography found acceptance among metallurgists during the Depression decade, when several dozen welding shops introduced X-ray machines to inspect welds in high-pressure vessels. As in consumer products, social activism and government intervention were important factors. Furthermore, industries with interests in environmental protection solicited the assistance of ASTM, leading to the formation of new technical committees such as F on Hazardous Substances and Oil Spill Response and E on Pesticides. It will of necessity have to be modified from time to time.
ASTM was aware that the fit between defense and civilian standards was not always as seamless as in the example just described. Did Britain ultimately fare better or worse for having allowed itself to exist as a "dumping ground" until well after International steel statistics book War I?

ASTM soon accumulated an outstanding record in consumer products standards.

Membership[ edit ] Companies must produce at least 2 million tonnes of steel and operate as independent commercial enterprises in order to be eligible for regular membership.
American consumer-goods industries remained the undisputed leaders in this sector for close to two decades, but the steadily-growing availability of Japanese and European imports revealed problems with the quality of some American-made products.

Standard specifications greatly facilitated this conversion. Industrial Mobilization in World War II The trends of the s—advances in test methods, close cooperation between government and industry, and mass production techniques—converged during World War II, when ASTM joined the industrial mobilization effort.
It is often overlooked that the most active users of antidumping measures have been GATT members with the more open markets—countries such as Australia, Canada, the European Union, and the United States.
Data published in the Statistical Yearbook may also be of interest to companies and enterprises and to agencies engaged in market research. Internally, the Society had evolved from a handful of technical committees devoted to steel and cement standards into a fairly complex organization comprised of a management structure and more than 80 committees involved in a wide range of activities.
The work of Committee C-1 was part of industry-wide efforts to develop uniform test methods. Jacob Viner catalogs an anecdotal history of alleged dumping by English manufacturers in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
British "dumpees" generally could not do this; foreign markets were increasingly closed to their exports, and continuous running for purposes of serving only the home market tended simply to further depress prices in that market, without necessarily increasing sales volume.Apr 07, · China Steel Industry Yearbook () statistics involved in the iron and steel industry in in addition to the monograph monograph column using the Express data.
