Torsion Testing to Assess Bulk Workability
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.
