Abstract Preview

ISO 16540:2015 provides guidelines for the use of four-point bend testing to evaluate the resistance of metals including carbon steel, low alloy steels, and corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs) to stress corrosion cracking. The method gives guidance on testing of both parent plate and welds and includes procedures for metals that have no distinct yield point in their stress-strain behaviour as well as metals with a distinct yield point. The emphasis in this International Standard is on the generic methodology of the four-point bend test. Service application will be varied and the relevant industry standard is to be consulted where appropriate.
