Bend Test are conducted to determine the ductility or strength of a material. Bend tests for ductility differ fundamentally from other mechanical tests in that most mechanical tests are designed to give a quantitative result and have an objective endpoint. In contrast, bending ductility tests give a pass/fail result with a subjective endpoint; the test operator judges whether a surface has undergone cracking. The bending ductility test developed as a shop-floor material inspection test because of its pass/fail qualities and the simplicity and low cost of the required tooling. As a consequence, the development of bending ductility test methods and apparatuses has been carried out by users rather than by mechanical-test equipment manufacturers. Test procedures and specimen preparation methods have evolved without close attention to detail. Therefore, despite the value of the test and its long history of use, there has been minimal standardization. Description and requirements of bend test is given in various other standards like ASME Section IX, AWS D1.1, IS 1599, IS 2062, ASTM A 370, etc.
