Material Testing
Material Testing
While designing a structure, engineer assumes certain value ofstrength for each of material being used therein. When thestructure is being constructed, it is the bounden duty of the fieldengineers to get the same validated by regular testing of material.The quality of materials used in any infrastructure does play a vitalrole with regard to its ultimate strength and durability in the longrun. Hence, the materials need to be tested according to certainstandard procedures developed by ASTM, BIS, RDSO to give aclear picture of material strength.The “Handbook of Material Testing” is an attempt by IRICEN tobring together the standard test procedures for materials frequentlyused in the civil engineering infrastructure of Indian Railways. It ishoped that this will be a helpful guide to the field engineers. A listof suppliers of various testing equipments has also been providedalongwith their addresses to enable the engineers in setting up ofa field laboratory, in case the need be.Any suggestions to ameliorate the content of this handbookwould be welcome.Shiv KumarDirectorIRICEN, Pune
