    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies methods by which a test piece of metal is strained in uni-axial tension at room temperature in order to determine one or more of its tensile properties.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies methods by which a test piece of metal is strained in uni-axial tension at room temperature in order to determine one or more of its tensile properties. It defines the properties to be determined and the terms used in describing tests and test pieces. The Standard also specifies the dimensions of standard test pieces and methods for tensile testing a wide range of product forms. Where material Standards (product Standards) specify the dimensions of the test piece, those dimensions take precedence over the dimensions which are specified in Appendices A and C.
