Should either a tensile or a bend test fail, two further
tests of the type which failed may be made on test pieces
cut from the same forging. If the results obtained from these
retests are satisfactory, the forgings shall be accepted,
provided that in other respects they fulfil the conditions
laid down above for steel forgings. If these retests do not
give satisfactory results the forgings represented may be
re-heat-treated together with the remainder of the test blocks
and presented for further testing.
In all cases where final retests do not give satisfactory
results, the forgings represented by the test pieces which
fail shall be rejected.
