This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2020. Therefore this version remains current.
Covers procedures for designing, preparing and using bent-beam test specimens. These specimens may be used to test a variety of product forms (i. e. sheet, plate, flat extruded material, wire or rod). They are espesially suitable for multiple testing and for atmospheric stress corrosion tests; they are usually tested under nominally constant strain conditions. Bent-beam specimens made from high strength materials may fracture rapidly and can be dangerous.
