The knowledge of material properties is a key factor in designing structures which withstand the challenges of their lifetime. Small Punch (SP) test is a material testing method which has the advantage of lean material usage. In this study, an overview is presented on the SP testing method. The aim of this paper is to help researchers by collecting articles about different research fields of SP testing. With the experiences from previous research a promising theme is proposed for future analysis in connection with SP testing.
