Abstract

It should be remembered that some standard tests and testing machines are intended chiefly for production control, to ensure that the material is as good as usual by taking periodic samples. In using such test data for design purposes we must consider how closely they relate to service conditions so that we can avoid wasteful overdesign on the one hand, dangerous overstressing on the other.
