This document specifies the conditions for conducting the plane bending fatigue test on an axial machine, constant-amplitude, force or displacement controlled, at room temperature (ideally between 10 °C and 35 °C) on metallic specimens, without deliberately introduced stress concentrations. This document does not include the reversed/partially loading test. The purpose of the test is to provide relevant results, such as the relation between applied stress and number of cycles to failure for a given material condition, expressed by hardness and microstructure, at various stress ratios. Although the shape, preparation and testing of specimens of rectangular and bevelled cross-section are specified, component testing and other specialized forms of testing are not included in this document. Fatigue tests on notched specimens are not covered by this document since the shape and size of notched test pieces have not been specified in any standard so far. Guidelines are given in Annex A. However, the fatigue-test procedures described in this document can be used for testing such notched specimens. It is possible for the results of a fatigue test to be affected by atmospheric conditions. Where controlled conditions are required, ISO 554:1976, 2.1 applies.

In the case of materials with a serrated stress-strain curve in the work hardening range (materials

The direct verification involves checking that individual machine performance parameters fall within
specified limits whereas the indirect verification utilizes hardness measurements of reference blocks,
calibrated in accordance with ISO 6506-3, to check the machine’s overall performance.
If a testing machine is also to be used for other methods of hardness testing, it has to be verified
independently for each method.
This document is applicable to both fixed location and portable hardness testing machines. For
machines that are incapable of satisfying the specified force-time profile, the direct verification of force

This document specifies methods for testing metallic sheet materials to determine the stress-strain
characteristics at high strain rates. This document covers the use of elastic-bar-type systems.
The strain-rate range between 10−3 and 103 s−1 is considered to be the most relevant to vehicle crash
events based on experimental and numerical calculations such as the finite element analysis (FEA)
work for crashworthiness.
In order to evaluate the crashworthiness of a vehicle with accuracy, reliable stress-strain
characterization of metallic materials at strain rates higher than 10−3 s−1 is essential.
This test method covers the strain-rate range above 102 s−1.
NOTE 1 At strain rates lower than 10−1 s−1, a quasi-static tensile testing machine that is specified in ISO 7500-1
and ISO 6892-1 can be applied.
NOTE 2 This testing method is also applicable to tensile test-piece geometries other than the flat test pieces
