How Test it??

How Test it??

How Test it??

I am new and i have a

I have some tubular components with steel material 20MnB. This component diameter (100 thickness /thickness/3.8mm /lenght 600mm) is transformed (with stamping tools)to a "U" shape.This component basically works under torsional loads applied on each extremity.
I want to characterize this material under fatigue situation. I need the curve e-N, / cyclic curve for material / strain-life curve

But, I do not know followings:

1. How i can extract / obtain a good specimen test from torsion beam, and therefore have a realistic material behavior?
it is difficul to extract  this specimen and others with same geometry, basically because it is formed in a U shape as i said before, an the exterior the surfaces could be not totally regular

2. Do you know any standard / instruction that could define how i have to proced to charaterize this type of tubular components?

3. How many specimens i need to test under fatigue loads, to obtain a real e-N curve

Please, could be one one help me?. I am not an expert

White Paper - PLM and ERP: Their Respective Roles in Modern Manufacturing
Leading manufacturers are aligning their people, processes, and tools from initial product ideation through to field service. They do so by providing access to product and enterprise data in the context of each person’s domain expertise.
