    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the testing of carbon and graphite in tension to obtain the tensile stress-strain behavior, to failure, from which the ultimate strength, the strain to failure, and the elastic moduli may be calculated as may be required for engineering applications. lists suggested sizes of specimens that can be used in the tests.

    Note 1—The results of about 400 tests, on file at ASTM as RR:C05-1000, show the ranges of materials that have been tested, the ranges of specimen configurations, and the agreement between the testers.

    Note 2—For safety considerations, it is recommended that the chains be surrounded by suitable members so that at failure all parts of the load train behave predictably and do not constitute a hazard for the operator.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
