Effect of Dither on Strain-Controlled Fatigue and Tensile Results Obtained with a Closed-Loop Servohydraulic Testing Machine



The flow stress of alpha brass was found to decrease during strain-controlled tension tests when the dither amplitude was increased. It is suggested that when conducting such tests using specimens requiring low deformation loads that alternative means of preventing silting be used.
