Examples of applications of ISO 10303-235

Axial fatigue testing of AISI 4130 steel sheet

Scenario:the representation of data from USA Mil-Hndb-5, 1998, page 2-38. The representation of the page of data included: product details, dimensions and specified composition, product properties (yield tensile strength, maximum tensile strength, test temperature), orientation and dimensions of the test specimen, the dimensions of the notch and the state of the surface, the details of testing process (frequency of load, temperature and atmosphere), the number of samples. The consolidated test results were represented by ISO 10303-235 as an equivalent stress equation. The Standard Error of the estimate was represented as well as the Standard Deviation in life.


Corrosion fatigue

Scenario: the testing in fatigue of a pre-cracked specimen in an enhanced corrosive environment. The representation included: the pre-cracking process, the crack monitoring measurement and equipment, the details of the sequence of load cycles and the composition and temperature of the corrosive environment.


Axial deformation of composite coupons

Scenario: the measurement of the behaviour in compression buckling and tensile strain of specimens of five uni-directional, fibre-reinforced composite coupons. The properties and their values that were represented were the modulus in buckling and the tensile properties of: tensile modulus, stress at rupture, maximum force, elongation at rupture, Poisson coefficient and mode of rupture. The dimensions of the specimens and characteristics of the testing machine were also represented.


Characteristics of steel plate at elevated temperature

Scenario: the characteristics of steel plate specified as P265H. The representation included: references to the complete product history of the steel (heat, ingot, primary product, sample, test piece), the specified elemental compositions, the dimensions of the plate, the specified properties from measurements at elevated temperature of: yield stress, maximum stress and percentage elongation of a specified gauge length. The property values were specifically linked to: the relevant stage in the product history, the thickness of the plate, the conditions of the test, such as the rate of deformation, and to relevant product and testing standards.


Characterisation of defects detected by ultrasonic non-destructive methods

Supported by Innnovate UK in the competition: Developing the civil nuclear supply chain.

Scenario: the detection by a phased array technique of a weld defect in a piping assembly. The representation included: the location of the assembly and its dimensions, the specified elemental composition of the components, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic control instrument, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic probe, the location and description of the path of the probe, the dimension of the defect and its location, the qualifications of the operator, the documentation of the procedure, the certification of the supervisor and the approval of the work and the results.


Scenario: the detection by a pulsed-echo method of a region of hydrogen induced cracking in a part of a steel pressure vessel. The representation included: the location of the part and its dimensions, the specified elemental composition of the steel, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic control instrument, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic probe, the dimension of the volume of the defective region and its location, the qualifications of the operator, the documentation of the procedure, the certification of the supervisor and the approval of the work and the results.


Scenario: the detection by time-of-flight diffractometry (ToFD) of three defects in a welded structure. The representation included: the dimensions of the structure, the specified elemental composition of the steel, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic control instrument, the characteristics and settings of the ultrasonic probes, the dimensions of the defects and their location, the qualifications of the operator, the documentation of the procedure, the certification of the supervisor and the approval of the work and the results.
