Abstract:

Evaluating the Bauschinger effect on ASTM A723 gun steel necessitated the design and fabrication of a specialized fixture that remained rigid and properly aligned during testing. The configuration of the fixture can be easily modified to accommodate various specimen geometries and monitoring devices. This fixture did not allow specimen bending or buckling and was successful in obtaining accurate Bauschinger data.
