ASTM E238 – Pin Bearing Test of Metallics

To request a quotation for any test email for a prompt reply

ASTM E238 testing covers a pin-type bearing test of metallic materials in order to determine bearing yield strength and bearing strength. The data provide a measure of the load-carrying capacity of a material edge loaded with a close-fitting cylindrical pin through a hole located a specific distance from the specimen edge. Touchstone has performed variations of this test at temperature up to 2500 °F

Bearing properties are useful in the comparison of materials and design of structures under conditions where the pin is not restricted.
