Page 222 - CASTING. HYDROSTATIC TEST OF GUN CASTING. The specimen for this test was similar to the one shown on p. 81, ^ Tests of Metals, etc., 1903." Its dimensions were as follows: ; The circumference of the test cylinder was divided into eight equal portions by reference marks, A, B, C, and D, each 45° from the previous one in alphabetical order. The maximum fiber stress in the specimen was computed by the following formula: in which P = pressure in the bore in Ib.
