This article discusses the equipment design, procedures, experimental considerations, and interpretation of the torsion tests used to establish workability. It describes the application of torsion testing to obtain flow-stress data and to gage fracture-controlled workability and flow-localization-controlled failure. The article discusses the torsion test used to establish the processing parameters that are required to produce the desired microstructures.
