Standard Practice for Determining Offset Yield Strength in Tension for Copper Alloys
|Publication Date:||10 October 1998|
|ICS Code (Copper and copper alloys):||77.120.30|
1.1 This practice establishes the requirements for determining offset yield strength (0.01 %, 0.02 %, and 0.05 % offset) at room temperature. It is intended for copper alloys in tempers commonly used for spring applications, and materials thicker than 0.010 in. (0.25 mm).
1.1.1 The primary application of this practice is intended for flat strip materials that are used for springs; however, this practice can be used for other product forms, such as wire, rod, and bar.
1.2 The values stated in inch pound units are the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
