Abstract:

A detailed description of the experimental method and equipment of five tests of three aluminum alloy thin-walled specimens under combined tension-torsion is presented. Results of these tests are shown in various curves. No strong evidence can be found to disclose the existence of distinct corners. These results seem to imply that even if corners are present they have no significant influence on the plastic strain rate, for the material in question. Such a material is therefore not unduly sensitive to small fluctuations in load such as might occur in all but the most carefully controlled tests in the plastic range. Author
