Proficiency testing for aluminium alloy AlSi9Cu3

8. April 2014.
Talum Inštitut d.o.o., material research and environmental protection, invites laboratories to take part in proficiency testing for AlSi9Cu3 alloy (226a quality) by method of optical emission spectrometry in accordance with EN 14726, which will be carried out in May 2014. 

The material used is an AlSi9Cu3 alloy sample with the following composition: Si ? 9%; Fe ? 0,5%; Cu ? 2,5%; Mn ? 0,4%; Mg ? 0,3%; Cr ? 0,02%; Ni ? 0,01; Zn ? 0,1%; Ti ? 0,05%; Pb ? 0,01%; Ca < 0,01%; P < 0,01%; Sn < 0,01%; Sr < 0,01%; V < 0,01%
 
Participants will receive the samples by post in April 2014. Participation fee is 250 EUR and includes report, certificate of participation, sample and sample delivery. After you receive the report, you can use the sample as CRM. If you are interested in participation, please contact tatjana.vicko@talum.si

Deadline for application is 14.04.2014.

Lidija Runko Luttenberger, D. Sc.

Dear colleague,

Some twenty plus years ago I was writing my master’s thesis entitled “Contribution to practical determining of corrosion fatigue of steel with particular reference to offshore technology units”. My paper among other things contains fatigue and corrosion fatigue test results for microalloyed steel TStE355 FG36T. 
I would just like to reflect on how much effort and material resources I had to engage in order to provide  high-quality specimens appropriate for low-cycle fatigue tests and to obtain relevant results at the prestigious institute. I had to involve a number of people in two major Croatian shipyards for procuring, cutting and machining the specimens in the yards’ tools processing workshops and to do much travelling in order to attend the tests. On top of that, it was quite an undertaking to find the literature in the field at the time. I am not sure that much has changed since then so I welcome your initiative to institute a web page containing a collection of scientifically and professionally relevant test results regarding different materials. I am sure it will spare many the effort of undergoing the lengthy, demanding and expensive procedures of determining advanced characteristics of industrial materials.
