4.1 Rupture life of notched specimens is an indication of the ability of a material to deform locally without cracking under multi-axial stress conditions, thereby redistributing stresses around a stress concentrator.
4.2 The notch test is used principally as a qualitative tool in comparing the suitability of materials for designs that will contain deliberate or accidental stress concentrators.View Less
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the time for rupture of notched specimens under conditions of constant force and temperature. These test methods also includes the essential requirements for testing equipment.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The units in parentheses are for information only.
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.
