Measure of the drawability of sheet metal. Two small parallel slots are cut in the edge of the sheet to form a tab which is gripped and torn from the sheet. The variation in length of tabs torn in different directions is an indication of crystal orientation in the sheet (tabs torn in the direction of orientation are longer). The degree of orientation is an indication of difficulty to be expected in drawing the sheet to uniform shapes.
