    Revision of B557 - 10 Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing Wrought and Cast Aluminum- and Magnesium-Alloy Products

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B557 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: B07.05 | Committee B07 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK39440

    1. Rationale

    To make consistent the 1.5 in. gauge break for shifting test plane and for ST tests; specifically allow dimensional measurements at higher precision than those specifie; correct transition radius on round specimen; clarify rounding to conform with E29; clarify specimen location for extrusions; consider rounding to nearest whole MPa in B557M
