Revision of E8/E8M-09 Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials


Current language allows % elongation at fracture to be reported instead of % elongation in some cases. People looking at test results are not catching the difference and are accepting material that does not pass % elongation requirements. The language needs to be made clearer that these two are not the same value and should not be reported as such.
