Revision of E6-15e4 Standard Terminology Relating to Methods of Mechanical Testing


Delete the term, “constraint,” which is attributed to subcommittee E28.91, from E6.
The term “constraint” is not defined in any E28 standard.
The phrase “constraint” appears in sentences in
E0023-18 (2x),
E0328-21 (20x)
E0290-14 (1x)
E0633-21 (1x)
E2248-18 (2x)
If a formal definition of constraint is necessary, it should be balloted as a change to E328-21 and adopted editorially into E6.
