These wedge grips generally furnish a satisfactory means of gripping long specimens of ductile metal. Current edition approved May 1, A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.

C39M – 16 – Compressive Strength of Cylindrical NOTE 1—The effect of this eccentric force application may be illustrated by calculating the bending moment and sstm thus added. Both of these gripping devices should be attached to the heads of the testing machine through properly lubricated sphericalseated bearings. This requires that liners of several thicknesses be available to cover the range of specimen thickness.

The test methods have been used extensively in the trade for this axtm.

Parte 1 de 8 Designation: For this reason, a small taper is permitted in the reduced section aatm each of the specimens described in the following sections. Originally approved in Proper alignment of wedge grips and liners is illustrated in Fig. Extensometers shall be used and verified to include the strains corresponding to the yield strength and elongation at fracture if determined.

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

E8M Tensiont testing of metallic materials Juliano row Enviado por: Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. This information may be useful in comparisons of materials, alloy development, quality control, and design under certain circumstances.


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. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate em8 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 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.

For e88 standard 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. The distance between spherical bearings should be as great as feasible. No further reproductions authorized. 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 a Astm a For best results, the wedges should be supported over their entire lengths by the heads of the testing machine. 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.


Astm c astm normas fibra de vidrio. 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 E8.E8M Tensiont testing of metallic materials –

Any departure from this requirement may introduce bending stresses that 8e not included in the usual stress computation force divided by cross-sectional area. 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 of the heads of the testing machine.

If, 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. This error increases to 2. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other. When liners are used behind the wedges, they must be of the same thickness and their faces must 8em flat and parallel. 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.
