For this reason, a small taper is permitted in the reduced section of each of the specimens described in the following sections. The gauge length is the most significant difference between E8 and E8M test specimens. Current edition approved May 1, Parte 1 de 8 Designation: The test methods have been used extensively in the trade for this purpose. Em, however, for any reason, one grip of a pair advances farther than the other as the grips tighten, an undesirable bending stress may be introduced.

NOTE 3—Punching or asm of the reduced section may produce significant cold work or shear burrs, or both, along the edges which should be removed by machining.

This information may be useful in comparisons of materials, alloy development, quality control, and design under s8 circumstances. Astm c astm normas fibra de vidrio.

E8M Tensiont testing of metallic materials Juliano row Enviado por: 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 e8mm, shall be as nearly as possible in uniformly distributed pure axial tension see 5.


The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other. Both of these gripping devices astk be attached to the heads of the testing machine through properly lubricated sphericalseated bearings.

These wedge grips generally furnish a satisfactory means of gripping long specimens of ductile metal.

This error increases to 2. Extensometers shall be used and verified to include the strains corresponding to the yield strength and elongation at fracture if determined. Astm a Astm a NOTE 1—The effect of this eccentric force application may be illustrated by calculating the wstm moment and stress thus added. C39M – 16 – Compressive Strength of Cylindrical A superscript epsilon indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

For proper gripping, it is desirable that the entire length of the serrated face of each wedge be in contact with the specimen.

Such interpretation is usually applicable to values for reduction of area reported in the literature when no further qualification is given. To ensure axial tensile stress within the gauge length, the axis of the test specimen should coincide with the center line asstm the heads of the testing machine.

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. The distance between spherical bearings should be as great as feasible.

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

For a standard 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.


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. Any departure from this requirement may introduce bending stresses that are not ast, in the usual stress computation force divided by cross-sectional area.

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. s8

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. No further reproductions authorized. When liners are used behind the wedges, they must be of the same thickness and asfm faces must be flat and parallel. Brittle Materials—A schematic diagram of a gripping device for threaded-end specimens is shown in Fig.

Proper alignment of wedge grips and liners is illustrated in Fig. For best results, the wedges should be supported over their entire f8m by the heads of the testing machine. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the aztm of regulatory limitations prior to use. This requires that liners of several thicknesses be available to cover the range of specimen thickness.
