Resistance welding - Destructive tests on welds in metallic materials - Torsion test of resistance spot welds
|Publication Date:||1 May 2012|
|ICS Code (Welded joints and welds):||25.160.40|
This International Standard specifies specimen dimensions, testing equipment and the procedure for torsion testing of resistance spot welds with single sheet thicknesses ranging from 0,5 mm to 6,0 mm in steels. It can be used for non-ferrous materials in certain circumstances.
The aim of this International Standard is to determine the weld diameter and the failure type of fractured specimens, and to evaluate the influence of different steel types, welding parameters and other factors on the deformation characteristics of a resistance spot weld.
