Metallic materials - Tube - Flattening test
|Publication Date:||15 November 2013|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
This International Standard specifies a method for determining the ability of metallic tubes of circular crosssection to undergo plastic deformation by flattening. It may also be used to reveal the defects in the tubes.
This International Standard 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, may be more exactly specified in the relevant product standard.
