Short transverse tensile test or through thickness ductile testing is carried out to determine the Ductility of the plates in the Z direction. Due to presence of rolled oxide & Sulphide inclusions, the ductility in the Z direction will be vastly reduced which leads to Lamellar tearing and also HIC. To prevent this normally through thickness testing is recommended for high thickness plates.

Subject: [MW:10088] THROUGH THICKNESS DUCTILE TESTING
One of my client technical specification calls for through thickness ductile testing for plate thickness above 40 mm.
Can you give information about through thickness ductile testing & why we need to carry out this testing?
With kind regards.
