Tensile Test

Tensile Testing is a form of tension testing and is a destructive engineering and materials science test whereby controlled tension is applied to a sample until it fully fails. This is one of the most common mechanical testing techniques. These test cover the tension testing of metallic materials in any form at room temperature, specifically, the methods of determination of yield strength, yield point elongation, tensile strength, elongation, and reduction of area.

Hardness Test

A test to determine the resistance a material exhibits to permanent deformation by penetration of another harder material. A hardness test is typically performed by pressing a specifically dimensioned and loaded object (indenter) into the surface of the material you are testing. The hardness is determined by measuring the depth of indenter penetration or by measuring the size of the impression left by an indenter.

Impact Test

Impact Testing of metals is performed to determine the impact resistance or toughness of materials by calculating the amount of energy absorbed during fracture. The impact test is performed at various temperatures to uncover any effects on impact energy. These services provide test results that can be very useful in assessing the suitability of a material for a specific application and in predicting its expected service life.

Bend & Rebend Test

The bend test is a simple and inexpensive qualitative test that can be used to evaluate both the ductility and soundness of a material. It is often used as a quality control test for butt-welded joints, having the advantage of simplicity of both test piece and equipment. This standard specifies the method for determining the ability of metallic wire of diameter or thickness O-3 to 10 mm inclusive to undergo plastic deformation during reverse bending. The range of diameters or thicknesses for which this standard is applicable may be more exactly specified in the relevant product standard. 1 The reverse bend test consists of repeated bending, through 90” in opposite directions, of a test piece held at one end, each bend being over a cylindrical support of a specified radius.

Flattening Test

This Test specifies method for determining the ability of metallic tubes of circular cross-section to undergo plastic deformation by flattening. It may also be used to reveal the defects in the tubes. This test is applicable to tubes having an outside diameter no greater than 600 mm and a thickness no greater than 15 % of the outside diameter. The range of the outside diameter or thickness, for which this International Standard is applicable maybe more exactly specified in the relevant product standard.

Proof Load Test

Proof load testing is designed to ensure that items of lifting equipment can perform to the required standard in accordance with manufacturer’s guidance, by giving it a full strength test. Proof load tests are often needed in addition to the statutory requirements Screen reader support enabled.

Pull Out Test

Pull-off’ or ‘pull-out’ testing generally involves the separation of two secured parts under tension. … Tensile force is then applied at a constant rate to ensure maximum repeatability between tests. The test can be destructive and runs until the component pulls off or breaks Turn on screen reader support Utkarsh Maloo has joined the document.
