Flattening test of a metallic pipe


Flattening test of a metallic pipe
Presentation for participants
Reference of the ILC: FL18TU
References of test methods: ISO 8492
Frequency: Each 3 years
Main characteristics Pass/Fail (12 samples submitted to flattening with 6 different geometrical conditions of increasing severity, 2 samples per type of geometrical conditions)
Other characteristics -
Caution: The number of determinations may be low for the secundary characteristics, what may make inefficient the comparison between laboratories
Determination of the assigned values (“true values” for each characteristic):
By statistical computation of the totality of the results with possible selection on competence criteria (accreditation, validation by a reference body, quantity of tests performed in the year), test to detect possible collusion, merging of results not obtained in reproductibility conditions, suppression of technically unvalid results.
Type of statistical computation:
Results are of yes/no type. 12 samples are submitted to tests, by sets of 2 items, with increasing severity, so that cut-off conditions for failure can be determined. The assessment of the results of participants is achieved by reference to this cut-off.
Number of samples per participant: 12
Product submitted to tests: Non alloyed steel
Type of samples: Pipes
Approximate dimensions of samples: ± Ø20x2x50 mm
Specific preparation to be performed by the participant:  None (other than possible necessity to adapt dimensions of the test specimen to the equipment of the participant)
