Standards Update: ASTM D1555 and ASTM D1555M

| News

Standards ASTM D1555 and ASTM D1555M – Standard Test Method for Calculation of Volume and Weight of Industrial Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Cyclohexane (Metric) – have been revised and issued as new 2016 versions. QuantityWare has carefully analyzed these new versions. Since both ASTM D1555-16 and ASTM D1555M-16 require usage of the volume correction factor without rounding in calculations, new implementations are required to cover this new definition. The new implementations will be made available as advanced development within a note in Q4 2017, combined with an instruction guide how to migrate existing ASTM D1555 conversion groups to this new methodology. Template extensions will be shipped with the next BCS 3.0 CSP.
