ASTM E8 Standard Test Method for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials
This method covers the tensile testing of metallic materials in any form at room temperature.
Machine the specimen to the appropriate geometry and apply strain gauges if desired.Â Use constant extension universal testing machine and apply load until material failure.
Modulus of elasticity, percent elongation, yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, breaking stress
Test frame, strain gauge, wedge grips
