Standard Test Method for Transverse Rupture Strength of Powder Metallurgy (PM) Specimens
|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
This test method covers determination of the transverse rupture strength of sintered, including post-treated, powder metallurgy test specimens by subjecting them to a uniformly increasing transverse force under controlled conditions. The term "transverse rupture strength" as used herein, defines the stress, calculated from the flexure formula required to break a specimen as a simple beam supported near the ends and applying the force midway between the fixed line center of the supports.
Limitations-The transverse rupture test is only applicable to relatively brittle materials. In cases where a ductile specimen is being tested and the permanent deflection as a result of testing exceeds 0.02 in. (0.5 mm), the test results may be questionable.
Test Method B406 should be consulted for determining the transverse rupture strength of cemented carbides.
