Besides the standardized tensile tests we perform regularly in accordance with ASTM, ASME, API and other national and international standards (EN, JIS, BNS, DIN, etc.) we also perform comprehensive tensile tests- providing comprehensive information about the mechanical properties having strong impact on formability of sheet metal.
Within our reports delivered on the comprehensive tensile testing process- in addition to the values reported within the standardized tensile tests (Yield Strength, Ultimate Tensile Strength, Elastic Ratio, Total Elongation and Reduction of Area), the following values can be provided:
Strain Hardening Exponent (n-value),
Plastic Strain Ratios (R-value and R-bar values ),
Bake Hardening Index (BHI),
Strain Hardening Index (SHI), all tested and reported either separately or in desired combinations
Our experts will be more than happy to provide you any additional help in defining the most efficient combination and the right choice of the tests and mechanical properties.
