GB/T 5028-2008: Metallic materials -- Sheet and strip -- Determination of tensile strain hardening exponent

This document specifies the method to determine the tensile strain hardening exponent (n value) of metal sheets and strips. This method is only applicable to the part where the stress-strain curve is monotonically rising continuously within the plastic deformation range (see 7.4).

Metallic materials - Sheet and strip - Determination of
tensile strain hardening exponent
1 Scope
This document specifies the method to determine the tensile strain hardening exponent (n value) of metal sheets and strips.
This method is only applicable to the part where the stress-strain curve is monotonically rising continuously within the plastic deformation range (see 7.4).
If the stress-strain curve of the material in the work hardening stage is serrated (such as the Portevin-Le Chatelier serration yield effect exhibited by some AlMg alloys), to make the given results have a certain reproducibility, it shall use an automatic measurement method (for linear regression of the log of true stress-true plastic strain, see 7.7).

For dated references, the subsequent amendments (excluding corrigendum) or revisions do not apply to this Standard, however, parties who reach an agreement based on this Standard are encouraged to study if the latest versions of these documents are applicable. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document applies.

The slope of the straight line in the double logarithmic coordinate plane is the tensile strain hardening exponent.
4 Test principle
The specimen is axially stretched and deformed at a specified constant rate within the uniform plastic deformation range. Use the stress-strain curve over the entire range of uniform plastic deformation or use a portion of the stress-strain curve in the range of uniform plastic deformation to calculate the tensile strain hardening exponent (n value). 5 Test equipment
5.1 The tensile testing machine shall meet the requirements of Grade 1 or better than Grade 1 in GB/T 16825.1.The clamping method of the specimen shall comply with the provisions of GB/T 228.
5.2 The accuracy of the extensometer for measuring the change of gauge length shall meet the requirements of Grade 2 or better than Grade 2 in GB/T 12160 (if the r value of the material is determined according to GB/T 5027 at the same time, a Grade 1 extensometer shall be used).
5.3 When measuring the thickness and width of the parallel length of the specimen, the resolution of the dimension measuring device shall comply with the provisions of GB/T 228.
6 Specimen
6.1 Sampling shall be in accordance with relevant product standards. If not specified in the product standard, sampling is carried out in accordance with the agreement of the parties concerned. The dimensional tolerances, shape tolerances and markings of the specimen shall comply with the provisions of GB/T 228.
6.2 If the plastic strain ratio (r value) needs to be determined at the same time as the tensile strain hardening exponent (n value), the specimen shall also meet the requirements of GB/T 5027.
6.3 Unless otherwise specified, the thickness of the specimen shall be the original thickness of the product.
6.4 There shall be no defects such as scratches on the surface of the specimen. 7 Test procedures
7.1 The test is generally carried out at room temperature between 10??C ~ 35??C. If the test is required to be carried out under controlled temperature conditions, the temperature shall be controlled at (23 ?? 5)??C.
7.2 Clamp the specimen to the testing machine (see 5.1). The axial force of the specimen must be guaranteed to meet the requirements of GB/T 228.
7.3 Unless otherwise specified in the standard, during the plastic deformation stage, the strain rate of the parallel length of the specimen shall not exceed 0.008s-1.This rate shall remain constant throughout the strain interval for which the n value is determined. If the specified plastic elongation strength, yield strength and other properties need to be measured while measuring the tensile strain hardening exponent (n value), the test rate shall also meet the relevant regulations in GB/T 228.
7.4 When the n value is determined over the entire uniform plastic strain range, the upper limit of the measured strain shall be slightly less than the plastic strain corresponding to the maximum force.
When the material exhibits a monotonically rising uniform deformation behavior (that is, the material has no obvious upper and lower yield), the lower limit of the measured strain shall be slightly larger than the strain corresponding to the test rate switching point for determining Rm, as shown in Figure 1.
When the material exhibits obvious yield (that is, the material has upper and lower yield strengths), the lower limit of the measured strain shall be slightly larger than the strain amount corresponding to the work hardening starting point and the test rate switching point for determining Rm, as shown in Figures 2 and 3.
The upper and lower limits of the measured strain shall be indicated in the report.
