TA24FS : Participation to ILC Tensile test on flat steel


Reference of the ILC TA24FS
References of test methods ISO 6892-1
References of test methods for which the ILC can indirectly provide an assessment of performance ASTM E8/E8M  ASTM A370
      These may be superseded standards, which some of the reference standards may have replaced, or EN or ASTM or ISO standards that are close but not exactly equivalent to the reference standards.
Frequency Each year
Main characteristics Rm, ReH, Rp0,2, At, Agt, Z, E
Other characteristics ReL, Rt0,5, Ae
  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 10 (For this ILC, the type of test and sample size allow to provide results determined by several different operators and by several different methods)
Product submitted to tests Flat steel
Type of samples Plates
Approximate dimensions of samples 2x 300x30x1-3 mm
Specific preparation to be performed by the participant  Machining of test specimens
Special notice for this ILC ReL, ReH, and Ae may be not determinable, according to the type of steel.
