ASTM E8 Standard Test Method for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials

Scope:
This method covers the tensile testing of metallic materials in any form at room temperature.

Procedure:
Machine the specimen to the appropriate geometry and apply strain gauges if desired.  Use constant extension universal testing machine and apply load until material failure.

Data:
Modulus of elasticity, percent elongation, yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, breaking stress

Equipment Used:
Test frame, strain gauge, wedge grips
