Developing Uniaxial Tensile Test as an Alternate Method for Thermo Mechanical Process Evaluation
The alternate method for evaluating the thermo mechanical process has been developed. Small attention has been paid to the mechanism of plastic deformation especially plane strain analysis. Modified the specimen geometry and using uniaxial tensile test was done to view the process. Experimental results show that the forming limit diagram as one of the formability characteristic can be view the plane strain condition that present on the thermo mechanical process. The microstructure result shows that there is a similar grain structure between hot tensile test and hot rolling results as one of thermo mechanical process method. It was concluded that the uniaxial test using universal testing machine could be done to evaluate the thermo mechanical process.
