A new test method is described whereby the spinnability, i.e., the ability to undergo shear spinning deformation, without fracture, of any material may be determined. Work done to date with this test method indicates that a good nonspinning criterion for estimating spinnability is the tensile reduction of area at fracture. Results of the spinnability test suggest that a feature of this test be adopted in the design of production cone-spinning mandrels. A qualitative discussion of the effects of deviating from the sine law is presented.
