Significance and Use
4.1 The complex stress and strain conditions that occur in the sample during the torsion test are sensitive to minor variations in materials, making the torsion test a useful tool in assessing wire ductility under torsional loading.
1.1 This test method describes the torsion (or twist) testing of metallic wire.
1.2 The values stated in U.S. customary units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI equivalents of U.S. customary units may be approximate.
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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
