Abstract : The basic purpose of the document is to serve as a guide to design engineers, project engineers, and contractors to aid in the selection and processing of metallic materials for use in various explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) tools and equipment. Materials for such uses are selected primarily because of their ability to comply with low-magnetic property requirements. Additionally, strength properties are important in selecting materials for specific requirements. This manual will therefore include information on (1) the magnetic properties of currently acceptable materials, (2) other physical and mechanical properties and (3) processing information on these materials.
