The small punch test (SPT) approach is a miniature specimen testing technique to estimate the preserved mechanical strength of an in-service component to check its fitness for service. The SPT results are summarized in form of force-specimen deflection, (F − u) and force-punch displacement, (F − v) response. There are many standards published in an attempt to define a universally accepted approach for SPT-aided mechanical characterization. However, it was recognized that such standards were not concerned to practice a consistent approach while SPT response measurement and strength estimation toward outlining proclaimed best-fitting correlations. This paper narrates limitations caused by known inconsistent practices and proposed comprehensive correlations for accurate strength estimation for metallic materials which are exposed to 100–2000 MPa strengths.
