ASTM WK20176

    Work Item: ASTM WK20176 - Revision of E855 - 90(2000) Standard Test Methods for Bend Testing of Metallic Flat Materials for Spring Applications Involving Static Loading

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E855 - 08(2013)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E28.02 | Committee E28 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    This standard does not have a precision and bias section that satisfies current ASTM requirements. This work item will develop an acceptable P&B section for this standard.


    bend testing-metallic materials; cantilever beam test; four-point loaded beam method; loading tests-metals/alloys; mass moment of inertia; mechanical testing; metals and metallic materials; modulus of elasticity; oscillating pendulum method; pendulum test; springs; steel springs; tension (tensile) properties/tests-metallic materials; third-point loading; bend testing of metallic flat materials (for spring applications);
