The torsional stiffness determined in the torsion test serves as orientation for the load capacity of the material. This method is applied in shafts, axles, wires and springs and to assess the impact behaviour of tool steels.
Torsion test, 30Nmm
Manual torsion testing of different materials to fracture.
