Metal Standards

ASTM and ISO standards for materials tests on metals

In most cases, metals are tested according to a specific standard. Metal standards are important when it comes to consistency and comparability of results obtained from mechanical material tests on metals. They ensure that test methods are standardized and reproducible, so that the mechanical properties of these metals can be reliably evaluated. This is critical for quality assurance, research and development, material selection and design calculation purposes in many industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, and more. Various national and international organizations, such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO standards) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM standards), are responsible for creating and maintaining metal standards. Metal standards define parameters such as specimen geometries, the test process, as well as the test equipment and test settings.

The most important standards for mechanical materials tests on metals include:

  • ASTM E8 / ISO 6892-1: these standards establish the test methods for tensile strength, yield strength, strain and reduction of the cross-sectional area of metals. They define the procedure for tensile tests on standardized metal specimens at room temperature and enable the determination of important mechanical properties. The ASTM E21 / ISO 6892-2 standards define the tensile test on metals at high temperatures.
  • ASTM E23 / ISO 148-1: these standards cover the Charpy impact test method for metals. The test measures the strength and resistance of a material when subjected to impact loads.
  • ASTM E399 / ISO 12135: These standards establish the method for determination of the crack initiation and crack growth resistance properties of metals.
  • Hardness tests on metals are described in standards ISO 6508 / ASTM E18 (Rockwell), ISO 6507 / ASTM E92 (Vickers) and ISO 6506, ASTM E10.

Metals 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 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
  • Standard-compliant testing software
  • Simple operation thanks to standard and custom pre-configurations
  • Standard-compliant naming of test results
  • Standard-compliant generation of test results/test reports

The metal standards specify the fundamental requirements for test methods used to determine characteristic values. ZwickRoell materials testing machines are optimally equipped to meet both these requirements, as well as individual customer specifications. Our testXpert testing software implements the basic conditions through test programs for all ASTM and ISO standards, in which the test sequence with important parameters from the standard is already specified and pre-configured or necessary variable parameters are specifically set by the operator.
