Testing and Measuring Sheet Metal Properties

Course Type:
OnLine Course
Description:

We test materials, both to anticipate behaviors during manufacturing and to compare properties among different types and grades. Getting reliable test results requires consistently applied procedures and properly calibrated equipment.

Tensile tests must be conducted using standardized equipment and procedures to ensure accurate and consistent results. To accomplish this, standards organizations publish sheet metal tensile test standards. These standards include:

Description:

In the Oscar-winning movie Whiplash, a talented young drummer and a respected music teacher engage in a battle of wills and wits. The simplest lesson of this dark, controversial film is practice makes perfect. Whether you play the drums or march in the drum line, you know that practice pays off. You store the steps and beats in your memory, leaving you free to perfect your performance.

Testing sheet metal to determine its properties is not unlike what musicians and athletes go through...

Thinning Strain Analysis (TSA) and Circle Grid Strain Analysis (CGSA) are powerful tools to determine if your forming process and sheet metal choice are sufficiently robust to handle the inherent variations of metal properties. Properly done, TSA and CGSA can offer you valuable insight into the forming capabilities of your seleced sheet metal. Improper technique can lead you to make costly decisions.

The easiest way to check your measurements is to compare the thickness calculated...
