Resistance spot welding -- Destructive tests of welds -- Method for the fatigue testing of spot welded joints
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 14324:2003 specifies test specimens and procedures for fatigue testing spot welds, at ambient conditions, under repeated tensile loading to produce either shear or cross-tension loading of the spot weld, in steel of sheet thicknesses of 0,5 mm to 6 mm. The test results are not, in general, directly applicable to the fatigue behaviour of a spot-welded component or structure. This procedure can be used for other materials provided proper test conditions (e.g., heating) have been determined.
