Touchstone is experienced in the performance of fatigue testing in almost every material system and at a wide variety of temperatures from cryogenic to over ? The trial test specimen should be turned about its axis, installed, and checked for each of four orientations within the?

Testing Procedure Place the specimen securely in the grips of the testing machine. Obvious abnormalities, such as cracks, machining marks, gouges, undercuts, and so forth, are not acceptable. Improper methods of preparation can greatly bias the test results.

For tests run in compression, the length of the test section should be approximately two times the test section diameter to minimize buckling. A caveat is given regarding the gage section with sharp edges that is, square or rectangular cross section since these are inherent weaknesses because the slip of the grains at sharp edges is not con?

Touchstone Research Laboratory, S466. This knowledge and care provides the most meaningful and best possible high cycle fatigue life results. The test section length should be approximately two to three times the test section diameter.

ASTM E466 Load Controlled Constant Amplitude Fatigue Tests of Metals

Also, Refsalthough they pertain to straincontrolled testing, may prove of interest since they deal with sheet specimens approximately 0. This practice is not intended for application in axial fatigue tests of components or parts. It is advisable to determine these aatm residual stresses with X-ray diffraction peak shift or similar techniques, and that the value of the surface residual stress be reported along with the direction of determination that is, longitudinal, transverse, radial, and so forth.


The size of the gripped end relative to the gage section, and the blend radius from gage section into the grip section, may cause premature astj particularly if fretting occurs in the grip section or if the radius is too small.

One exception may be where these parameters are under study.

Take care to properly align the specimen. Surfaces intended to be parallel and straight should be in a manner consistent with 8. Regardless of the machining, adtm, or polishing method used, the? As a cautionary note, should localized yielding occur, signi? In view of this, no maximum ratio of area grip to test section should apply. Give our test engineers a call today for help configuring the best test machine and accessories according to ASTM E Since however, the environment can greatly in?

The test may also be used as a guide to the selection of metallic materials for service under conditions of repeated direct stress. To ensure test section failure, the grip cross-sectional area should be at least 1. The varying stress amplitude, as determined by a suitable dynamic veri? Specimens can be round or flat. Current edition approved Nov.

Thus, when embarking on a program of this nature it is essential to de?

Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. Take care to adjust the specimen symmetrically to distribute the load uniformly over the cross section.

For specimens having a uniform gage length, it is advisable to place a similar set of gages at two or three axial positions within the gage section. The value of 1. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject awtm but are not provided as part of the standard.


Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. This standard is subject aastm revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every?

Static and fatigue forces up to 25 kN 5, lbf Frequency ratings up to Hz Servohydraulic Small, portable footprint.

One set of strain gages should be placed at the center of the gage length to detect misalignment that causes relative rotation of the specimen ends about axes perpendicular to the specimen axis. However, regardless of the nature of the forcing function, it should be reported sine, ramp, saw tooth, etc.

ASTM E Load Controlled Constant Amplitude Fatigue Tests of Metals

The reduced section length should be greater than three times the minimum test section diameter. ASTM E is limited to the fatigue testing of axial unnotched and zstm specimens subjected to a constant amplitude, periodic forcing function in air at room temperature.

By means of our fatigue testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you. All material variables, testing information, and procedures used should be reported so that correlation and reproducibility of results may be attempted in a fashion that is considered reasonably good current test practice.

The results may also be used as a guide for the selection of metallic materials for service under conditions of repeated direct stress. Readers are referred to Ref 1 should this occur.

Assurance that surface residual stresses are minimized can be achieved by careful control of the machining procedures.
