ASTM D813, ASTM D430, and ASTM D4482
Flex fatigue helps characterize a material’s ability to withstand cyclical stresses and strains.
ASTM D430 measures the dynamic fatigue on materials through cyclic flexing through surface cracking and break. ASTM D813 provides an estimation of a materials ability to resist crack growth through cyclic flexing of a pierced test specimen. ASTM D4482 helps characterize fatigue life at various extension ratios through looking at full flex-life performance.
