BS ISO 16237:2015 pdf download – Mechanical joining — Destructive testing of joints — Specimen dimensions and test procedure for cross-tension testing of single joints
This International Standard specifies the geometry of the test specimens and the method for the cross-tension testing of single mechanical joints on single-lap test specimens up to a single sheet thickness of4,5 mm.
The term “sheet”, as used in this International Standard, includes extrusions and cast materials.
The purpose of the cross-tension test is to determine the mechanical characteristics and the failuretypes of the joints made with different joining methods.
This International Standard does not apply to civil engineering applications such as metal building andsteel construction which are covered by other applicable standards.
