Developed by Subcommittee: E06.13
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method provides a basic procedure for evaluating the tensile strength properties of the net section of finished metal connector plates.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings, this test method was withdrawn in March 2005. This standard is being withdrawn due to a lack of support for continued use.
1.1 This test method provides a basic procedure for evaluating the tensile strength properties of the net section of finished metal connector plates.
1.2 This test method serves as a basis for determining the comparative performance of different types and sizes of metal connector plates in tension.
1.3 A companion test method, Test Method E767, covers the performances tests on these plates in shear.
1.5 This test method does not provide for the corrosion testing of metal connector plates exposed to long-term adverse environmental conditions where plate deterioration occurs as a result of exposure. Under such conditions, special provisions shall be introduced for the testing for corrosion resistance.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
