Reference material for tensile testing of metals

Objective



The objective of the project is to produce a certified reference material for the validation at room temperature of tensile testing machines.

Upon the basis of the results of an intercomparison of room temperature tests on CRM 425 involving 10 laboratories from the Member States of the European Union, 5 laboratories will be selected to participate in the project to produce a certified room temperature tensile test reference material.

The work programme for production of the reference material includes the acquisition of a candidate reference material master melt (1 tonne of Nimonic 75), checking the homogeneity of the master melt (for chemical composition, grain size, hardness and microstructure) and certification of the reference material by undertaking a certification exercise between the 5 laboratories.
