    A technique has been developed for conducting elevated temperature tension tests on a 4-in. tubular specimen. The new technique, utilizing commercially available compression fittings, has been used successfully for over 200 elevated temperature tension tests. The technique complies with all pertinent ASTM standards. Tension tests on tubing can now be performed in a manner comparable to procedures used for conventional solid specimens.
