1.1 This test method covers the determination of a strain-hardening exponent by tension testing of metallic sheet materials for which plastic-flow behavior obeys the power curve given in the Introduction.
Note 1—A single power curve may not fit the entire stress-strain curve between yield and necking. If such is the case, more than one value of the strain-hardening exponent can be obtained (2).
1.2 This test method is for metallic sheet materials with thicknesses of at least 0.005 in. (0.13 mm) but not greater than 0.25 in. (6.4 mm).
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI equivalents shown may be approximate.
1.4 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
