Tensile test on machined steel test piece (ASTM)

Presentation for participants

Reference of the ILC:

TA21ASTM

   

References of test methods:

ASTM E8/E8M  ASTM A370

   

Frequency:

Each year

                       

Main characteristics:

TS, UYS, YS(offset0,2), E5D, ELu, E

Other characteristics:

LYS, YS(EUL0,5), YPE

 

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:

For numerical results, the statistical computation will provide an assigned value with its attached uncertainty, values of standard deviations for repeatability and reproductibility, limits of alerts for bias and repeatability of the participant, indiviual values for uncertainty of results of participants.

Number of products submitted to tests:

1

Number of samples per participation:

3

Max number of operators per participation:

1 (it is necessary to order as many participations as there are participating test operators)

Product submitted to tests:

Non alloyed steel

Type of samples:

Bars

Approximate dimensions of samples:

2x Ø18x200 mm

Specific preparation to be performed by the participant:

Machining of test specimens (2 test pieces per supplied sample)

                   

Special notice for this ILC:

LYS, UYS and YPE may be not determinable, according to the type of steel.
