Page 244 - ... low Charpy strength and the static properties, namely, elastic limit, tensile strength, elongation, and contraction. The static properties obtained from the specimens taken in the transverse direction are sufficient in themselves to warrant the rejection of the piece. As all of the forgings discussed have suffered from very low ductility when static tensile tests were taken in the transverse direction, while at the same time the Charpy test has been low, it will doubtless occur to many that the...
