7.10.2.1.3 Other products
In accordance with different determination items, determine the strain rate:
When it is necessary to determine the elastic modulus, adopt a strain rate ( ) of
0.000083 s1 (with a relative error of 40%) to perform the tensile test, until the elastic
modulus is measured. Then, adopt a strain rate ( ) of 0.00025 s1 (with a relative error
of 20%) to continue the tensile test, until the specified nonproportional elongation
strength is determined. Afterwards, adopt a strain rate ( ) not exceeding 0.0067 s1 to

is also feasible to determine the elastic modulus after three loadings, and then, continuously
apply the load during the last loading, until the other required mechanical properties are

specimen, until it reaches the specified plastic (engineering) strain; when only the elastic

Figure 36  Schematic Diagram of Determining the Value Range on the Stressstrain
Curve Based on the Regression Interval
7.11.10.1.2 The value n is related to the specified regression interval. The regression interval
used to determine the value n can be listed in the record or report in a table, or the regression
interval can also be marked with a subscript. For example, n515 represents the value n calculated
in the range of plastic (engineering) strain (ep) of 5% ~ 15%.
7.11.10.1.3 The plastic (engineering) strain range specified in the product standard, or order
sheet (or contract) shall be used as the regression interval. The regression interval shall be no
less than 2%. When the product standard or order sheet (or contract) specifies the value n for
determining a single plastic (engineering) strain level, a 2% strain range with the strain level as
the midpoint shall be selected as the regression interval, for example, the regression interval of
5% strain is 4% ~ 6% strain range. When the plastic (engineering) strain range or a single plastic
(engineering) strain level is not specified in the product standard or order sheet (or contract),
the entire uniform plastic (engineering) strain range should be selected for calculation.
7.11.10.1.4 The upper limit of the plastic (engineering) strain range used to calculate the value
n shall not be greater than the plastic elongation at maximum force (Ag). When the Ag of the
specimen is less than the upper limit of the strain range specified in the product standard or
order sheet (or contract), it cannot be used for the calculation of the value n. However, when
the demandside and the supplyside agree and indicate it in the product standard or order sheet
(or contract), the Ag of the specimen can be used as the upper limit of the plastic (engineering)
strain range to calculate the value n.
7.11.10.2 Calculation of strain hardening index (value n)
7.11.10.2.1 On the stressstrain curve, determine the lower limit (e1) and upper limit (e2) of the

of the regression interval.
7.11.10.2.2 In the range of e1 ~ e2 on the stressstrain curve, select at least 5 data points at equal
passing through the origin of the regression interval, and the numerical value is

numerical value is dimensionless. The calculation results shall retain two decimal
places and rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.05 in accordance with the
stipulations of GB/T 8170.
From the test record, select the specified plastic (engineering) strain interval.
When the elastic strain in the length direction of all points in the interval is less
than 10% of the engineering strain, the total true strain (L) in the length direction
of the specimen can be calculated in accordance with Formula (10), and the
numerical value is dimensionless; in accordance with Formula (27), calculate the
total true strain (b) in the width direction of the specimen, and the numerical value
is dimensionless; in accordance with Formula (31), calculate the slope mr of the
bestfit straight line passing through the origin in the regression interval, and the
numerical value is dimensionless; then, in accordance with Formula (30), calculate
the value r, and the numerical value is dimensionless. The calculation results shall
retain two decimal places and rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.05 in accordance
with the stipulations of GB/T 8170.
7.11.11.3 Result expression
7.11.11.3.1 Expression of plastic strain ratio (value r)
The value r is related to the sampling direction of the specimen, and the specific plastic
(engineering) strain value (or interval). When recording or reporting, the specimen direction
and the specified plastic (engineering) strain value (or interval) can be listed in the table, or a
subscript can be used to identify the specimen direction and the specified plastic (engineering)
strain value (or interval).
EXAMPLE:
For example, r0/10 signifies the value r determined when the specimen direction is parallel to the rolling
direction, and the plastic (engineering) strain (ep) is 10%; r90/812 signifies the value r when the specimen
direction is perpendicular to the rolling direction, and the plastic (engineering) strain (ep) is in the range
of 8% ~ 12%.
7.11.11.3.2 Weighted average of plastic strain ratio (𝒓) and plastic strain ratio anisotropy
(r)
Under the same plastic (engineering) strain value (or interval), determine the value r of the
specimen in the three directions of 0, 45 and 90 (r0, r45 and r90 respectively). In accordance
with Formula (32), calculate the weighted average of the plastic strain ratio (𝑟 ), and the
numerical value is dimensionless. The calculation results shall retain two decimal places and
rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.05 in accordance with the stipulations of GB/T 8170. In
accordance with Formula (33), calculate the plastic strain ratio anisotropy (r), and the
numerical value is dimensionless. The calculation results shall retain two decimal places and
rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.05 in accordance with the stipulations of GB/T 8170.
NOTE: the value r in the three directions is determined at the same plastic (engineering) strain
value (or interval), and the symbol indicating the plastic (engineering) strain value (or
interval) in the subscript is omitted from the Formula.
