Standards for Metals Testing

In most cases, metals are tested according to a specific standard. Standards define properties and procedures including specimen geometries, the test process, as well as the test equipment and test settings. Various national and international organizations are responsible for creating and maintaining the standards.

Metals testing standards according to test type:

Tensile tests Compression tests and flexure tests Hardness tests Impact tests Fatigue tests & fracture mechanics Creep tests Deformation tests Calibration Specimen geometries

Metals testing standards according to segment:

Heavy plate Sheet metal and strips Thin sheets Bars and rods Sections and reinforcing steel Wires and cables Tubes Castings and forgings Fastening elements

Standardized materials testing with ZwickRoell testing machines for all segments of the metals industry

  • Standardized setup of the testing machine
  • Testing software that complies with standards
  • Simple operation thanks to standard and custom presets
  • Standard-compliant naming of test results
  • Standard-compliant creation of test results/test reports

The standard stipulates the general requirements for test methods used to determine characteristics. ZwickRoell materials testing machines are equipped to fulfill these requirements and to meet customer specifications. To fulfill these requirements, the testing software uses test programs that specify the test procedure and important presets or request required variable parameter values from the operator.
