FOREWORD
This standard is one of a series of standards being issued for implementation
of BIS Steel
Economy Programme.
These steel are specific class of steel in which enhanced mechanical
properties are obtained by the incorporation
of low proportions
of one or more alloying
elements.
These steels are generally intended for applications
where saving in mass may be
effected by reason of their greater yield strengths.

a) The title of the standard

For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement


of this standard is complied with,
the final value, observed or calculated expressing the result of a test or analysis shall be rounded
off in accordance with IS 2 : 1960 Rules for rounding off numerical values ( revised ). The
number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the
specified value in this standard.

8.3 In case of Hat test samples for tensile test,


both surfaces are normally to be left on the test
samples for plates up to 32 mm thick. At least
one rolled surface shall be left on rectangular
test samples taken from plates exceeding 32 mm
in thickness. Round test samples are permitted,
but should only be adopted for thickness exceeding 27 mm.

8.10 Test samples shall not annealed

or otherwise subjected to heat treatment


unless the
material from which they are cut is similarly
treated, in which-case the test samples shall be
similarly and simultaneously
treated with the
material before testing. Any slight straightening
of test samples which may be required shall be
done cold.

8.4 In case of flats up to 16 mm thick, the test


sample shall undergo, if possible, no machining
whatsoever, prior to use as a test piece. Tf this
is not possible, the test samples shall undergo
the minimum amount of machining.

9 TENSILE

TEST

9.1 Number of Tensile Test


9.1.1 Plates,
Sections ( Angles,
Channels, etc, and Flats )

Tees,

Beams,

One tensile test shall be made from finished


steel for every 40 tonnes or part thereof rolled
continuously
from each cast, a separate test
being made for each class of steel product
( namely, plates sections and flats ) rolled from
a cast.
9.1.2 Where plates, sections
or flats of more
than one thickness are rolled from the same
cast, one additional
tensile test shall be made
from the material in each class of product for
each variation in thickness of 6 mm.

8.5 Bars below 28 mm may be tested without


machining. In case of bars having diameters or
thickness between 28 mm and 71 mm, the bars
may be symmetricaIly
reduced by machining.
For bars having diameters or thickness exceeding 71 mm, the test sample may be taken from
the position shown in Fig. 1.
8.6 In case of sections, flats, and pIates bend
tests shall be carried out on rectangular .test
samples which, as far as possible, should be of
the full thickness of the product.
In case of
sections, flats and plates exceeding 28 mm in
thickness,
it is permissible to remove metal
from one side of the test sample before using it
as a test piece. The rolIed surface of the test
piece shall be on the outer side of the bend
during the test.

9.1.3

Bars ( Round, Square and Hexagonal

One tensile test shall be made from finished


product for each 40 tonnes or part thereof.
If more than one diameter or thickness
of the
bar is processed,
one additional
tensile test
shall be made for each variation of 3 mm above
or below the diameter or thickness of the bar
ordered.

8.7 Before test samples are collected, full particulars regarding cast number, size and mass of
plates, sections, flats and bars in each cast shall
be furnished by the manufacturer
to the purchaser. In case of plates, the number of plates
in each cast shall also be given.

9.2 Tensile Test Pieces


The tensile strength, yield strength and percentage elongation
of steel shall be determined
from standard test-pieces cut rolling or transverse to rolling direction
from plates and
lengthwise from sections, flats and bars. The
test shall be carried out on the standard test
pieces prepared in accordance
with IS 1608 ;

8.8 Test samples shall be cut in such a manner


that the .deformation
is avoided
as far as
possible, if shearing or flame-cutting is employed
adequate allowance shall be left for removal by
machining.

1972.
9.2.1 As a rule only

proportional
test pieces
complying with the requirements
L,=5*651/S%
should be used for the tensile test, where L,, is
the gauge length and So is the cross-sectional
area of the test piece.

8.9 Test samples taken from rolled steel which


have undergone deformation
through bending
or twisting shall in all cases be straightened
cold. If the deformation is too severe to allow
cold-straightening,
it is permissible, in case of
materials to be delivered in the annealed or
normalized condition, to carry out straightening
under the application
of heat, provided the
temperature
does not exceed 65OC. When
straightening test samples, care shall be taken
to avoid any cold-working
or temperature rise
which will alter the properties of these samples
as compared with the finished product which
they represent.

The gauge lengths other than 5*651/S.


may also be used in which case the elongations
shall be read from IS 3803 ( Part 1 ) : 1989.

is not uniform throughout

maximum thickness of the piece selected for
testing.

10.3.1 For bend test, the test piece at room


temperature
shall withstand bending through

that given in Table 2 without showing any
crack on the outer surface.

option, and

11 IMPACT TEST
11.1 The impact test shall normally be carried
out on products
having a thickness/diameter
greater than or equal to 12 mm. The test piece
shall be so machined that the face closer to the
rolling surface is not more than 1 mm from it;
the notch axis shall be perpendicular
to the
rolled surface.

10 BEND TEST

11.1.1 If stated in the order, impact test may


be carried out on products having a thickness
less than 12 mm; the dimensions of the test
pieces shall be in conformity with IS 1757 : 1988.

10.1 Number of Bend Test - Bend test shall be


made from finished steel from each cast. The
number of tests for every 20 tonnes of material
or part thereof,
rolled continuously,
shall be
as given below. One additional
test shall be
made for each class of product and for each
variation in thickness.

11.4 If the average value of the three Charpy
impact tests fails to comply by an amount not
exceeding 15 percent of the specified minimum
average value, three additional test pieces from
the same sample shall be tested and the results
added to those previously obtained
and a new
average calculated.
Provided this new average
complies with the specified requirement,
the
material represented shall be deemed to comply
with this standard.

10.2 Bend Test Piece


The test pieces shall be cut transverse to rolling
direction from plates, and in rolling direction
from sections, flats and bars. When sections
permit, these shall be not less than 40 mm wide.
If the manufacturer
so desires, round, square,
hexagonal and flat bars and structural
sections
shall be bent in the full section as-rolled.

12 OTHER TESTS

10.2.1 In all bend test pieces, the rough edge


or aris resulting from shearing may be removed
by filling or grinding or machining but the test
pieces shall receive no other preparation.

The material may be subjected to non-destructive testing to determine soundness of material


subject to mutual agreement between the purchaser and the manufacturer.

10.2.2 The test pieces shall not be annealed or


otherwise subjected to heat treatments
unless
the material from which these are taken is
similarly treated.
In such cases, the test pieces
shall be similarly treated in the same furnace
with the material before testing.
