For measuring elongation at fracture with an appropriate extensometer, the gauge length of the extensometer shall be equal to the nominal gauge length required for the specimen being tested. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other.

Proper alignment of wedge grips and liners is asttm in Fig. It is important, therefore, that care be exercised in the preparation of specimens, particularly in the machining, to maximize precision and minimize bias in test results. This requires that liners of several thicknesses be available to cover the range of specimen thickness.

ASTM E8.E8M -15-Tensiont testing of metallic materials

NOTE 1—The effect of this f8 force application may be illustrated by calculating the bending moment and stress thus added. The test methods have been used extensively in the trade for this purpose. To ensure axial tensile stress within the gauge length, the axis of the test specimen should coincide with the center line of the heads of the testing machine. The gauge length is the most significant difference between E8 and E8M test specimens. Brittle Materials—A schematic diagram of a gripping device for threaded-end specimens is shown in Fig.

ASTM E8 / E8M – 13 Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. E8M Tensiont testing of metallic materials Juliano row Enviado por: The distance between spherical bearings should be as great as feasible. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

For this reason, a small taper is permitted in the reduced section of each of the specimens described in the following sections.

Any departure from this requirement may introduce bending stresses that are not included in the usual stress computation force divided by cross-sectional area. Extensometers shall be used and verified to include the strains corresponding to the yield strength and elongation at fracture if determined. For a standard For short specimens and for specimens of many materials it is generally necessary to use machined test specimens and to use a special means of gripping to ensure that the specimens, when under load, shall be as nearly as possible in uniformly distributed pure axial tension see 5.

No further reproductions authorized. The forces used in determining tensile strength and yield strength shall be within the verified force application range of the testing machine as defined in Practices E4.

Originally approved in Parte 1 de 8 Designation: NOTE 3—Punching or blanking of the reduced section may produce significant cold work or shear burrs, or both, along the edges which should be removed by machining. Astm c astm normas fibra de vidrio. A superscript epsilon indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. This information may be useful in comparisons of materials, alloy development, quality control, and design under certain circumstances.


For proper gripping, it is desirable that the entire length of the serrated face of each wedge be in contact with the specimen. If, however, for any reason, one grip em8 a pair advances farther than the other as the grips tighten, an undesirable bending stress may be introduced.

For best results, the wedges should be supported over their entire lengths by the heads of the testing machine. Astm a Astm a When liners are used behind the wedges, they must be of the same thickness and their faces must be flat and parallel.

Current edition approved May 1, These wedge grips generally furnish a satisfactory means of gripping long specimens of ductile metal. Such interpretation is usually applicable to values for reduction of area reported in the literature when no further qualification is given. This error increases to 2.

Both of these gripping devices should be attached to the heads of the testing machine through properly lubricated sphericalseated bearings.
