Tests on miniature samples are increasingly used for the testing of mechanical properties of materials available in small volumes (non-destructive or semi-destructive approach). Small punch testing at constant deflection rate (SPT-CDR) of selected magnesium alloys and composites was performed at room temperature. Mechanical properties (yield strength, ultimate strength and ductility) were evaluated from SPT and correlated with results of uniaxial tensile tests (UTT). SPT characteristics were converted to uniaxial tensile properties by empirical formulas available in the literature. New formulas more appropriate for magnesium alloys were suggested.
