You can't find the classifications by looking at the standards, but the pages related to writing a standard explain it. Check page A-4 for the classifications and more...

Out of curiosity, does anybody know the definition of the ASTM A, B, C, D, E, F, G classifications for Standards.
The "A" standards appear to all be steel.
"B" seems to be other metals.
"C" is concrete, cement, and similar.
"D" gets confusing - it has wood, asphalt and other stuff
"E" seems to be test methods
"F" seems to be mostly plastic but has other materials
"G" seems to be evaluation methods
I looked on the ASTM web site but couldn't find an answer.
