Electric resistance welded (ERW) seam
steel tube are frequently used in numerous
industrial and household applications and also used
in automotive industries. To ensures the acceptability
of ERW seam tubes are prepared by various
industrial process, the quality of ERW tubes must
be evaluated. Drift expanding test is one of the best
ways to do so is to examine the quality of tubes. In
this paper the authors considered the mechanical
properties of various manufacturing processes and
different -2 sizes of tubes using drift expanding test.
This paper concludes that there is a comparison
between the different -2 sizes and standards with a
single type of material known as ERW materials
they have same composition for all sizes.
