Plastics -- Determination of creep behaviour -- Part 1: Tensile creep


Summary

ISO 899-1 specifies a method for determining the tensile creep of plastics in the form of standard test specimens under specified conditions such as those of pretreatment, temperature and humidity. The method is suitable for use with rigid and semi-rigid non- reinforced, filled and fibre-reinforced plastics materials in the form of dumb-bell-shaped test specimens moulded directly or machined from sheets or moulded articles. The method is intended to provide data for engineering-design and research and development purposes. Data for engineering-design purposes requires the use of extensometers to measure the gauge length of the specimen. Data for research or quality-control purposes may use the change in distance between the grips (nominal extension).Tensile creep can vary significantly with differences in specimen preparation and dimensions and in the test environment. The thermal history of the test specimen can also have profound effects on its creep behaviour. Consequently, when precise comparative results are required, these factors are intended to be carefully controlled. If tensile-creep properties are used for engineering-design purposes, the plastics materials are intended to be tested over a broad range of stresses, times and environmental conditions.

Metallic materials - Charpy impact bending test - Part 1: Test method

 

Summary

NF/BS/DIN/UNI-EN10045-2

Title

Metallic materials - Charpy impact bending test - Part 2: verification of the testing machine (impact pendulum)

 

Summary

The purpose of this European standard is to control the impact bending test machines (impact pendulums) used for the impact bending test on Charpy test specimens in accordance with EN 10045-1.

 

 It describes two methods: - the direct method allowing to verify statically and separately the geometrical and physical characteristics of the different parts of the impact pendulum, - the indirect method: a global method of impact pendulum checking using Charpy-V reference specimens such as defined in 6.2.

 

The direct method is to be used, on the one hand, during the installation or repair of the machine and, on the other hand, in the case where the indirect method gives an incorrect result, in order to investigate the cause. This standard also applies to reference impact pendulums whose geometrical characteristics are defined in Annex B. This standard may be applied in a similar way to impact pendulums of different capacities or of different design. Impact pendulums checked in accordance with this standard and found to be satisfactory shall be considered as valid for testing with test specimens of different notch types. The equipment used for the direct method must have certified traceability in relation to the International System of Units. Annex A defines, for information purposes, a method of direct verification of certain geometric characteristics using a template. Annex B defines, for information purposes, a guide for the preparation and characterization of reference specimens.
