Standard Test Method for Green Strength for Compacted Metal Powder Specimens
|Publication Date:||10 September 1996|
1.1 This test method covers determination of the green strength of unsintered compacted metal powder specimens by subjecting them to a uniformly increasing transverse loading under controlled conditions. The term green 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.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
