Transverse tensile test on welded joints after heat treatment

Reference of the ILC TH23WJ
References of test methods ISO 4136
Frequency This ILC can be organised this year thanks to our preregistration procedure, which ensures an enough number of participants.
Main characteristics Rm, Location of fracture
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 6
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 Welded joints
Type of samples Plates
Approximate dimensions of samples 300x45x4-10 mm
Specific preparation to be performed by the participant  Machining of test specimens
Special notice for this ILC The test for this ILC is to be carried out after heat treatment (600°C for 1h, to be performed by the participant) in order to include the performance of the heat treatments in the evaluation. Another ILC with a series to be tested in tension without heat treatment is organised by CompaLab, see TA22WJ.
