A series of low carbon steel specimens is investigated in the frame of a chain of magnetic non-destructive measurements on round robin samples, organized by the Universal Network for Magnetic Non-Destructive Evaluation. The samples have been plastically deformed by cold rolling to five consecutive stages of deformation. They were examined by several different nondestructive magnetic methods and the results were compared with each other and with the destructive mechanical measurements of Vickers hardness and ductile-brittle transition temperature. Very well correlated and qualitatively very similar relations between the magnetic and mechanical parameters were found in all cases, and for all the methods. Difference between the results of different measurements was found only in the sensitivity of the measurement with respect to the independent parameter, which is a promising message for the potential practical applications and possible future standardization of magnetic nondestructive methods.
