Steel Producers, when producing steel with special mechanical properties, always refer to DIN or ISO standards. But these standards only specify the alloying constituents in intervals and only compel producers to guarantee minimal values of mechanical properties e.g. the yield stress. This leads to different mechanical behaviour in different batches of steel which is nominally the same. This paper deals with the investigation of the mechanical behaviour of three different batches of 51CrV14 and the consequences for their viscoelastic-plastic modelling.
